Should You Sell or Pawn Your Rolex Watch at a Pawn Shop?
Understanding the Difference between Selling and Pawning
When you sell your Rolex watch to a pawn shop, you are transferring ownership of the watch in exchange for cash. When you pawn your Rolex watch, you are using it as collateral for a loan. We will then keep your item in a safe vault; yet, your item still remains your property! When you’re ready to reclaim your pawn, we’ll return the watch to you.
The QOP Process
At Queen of Pawns, we offer a simple and straightforward process for selling or pawning your Rolex watch.
To sell your Rolex watch, simply bring it into one of our Florida locations and a member of our team will appraise it. You’ll need to provide us with a valid government-issued ID as well. Once the appraisal is complete, we will make you an offer. If you accept our offer, we will pay you cash on the spot.
To pawn your Rolex watch, you must be at least 18 years old to pawn and be the legitimate owner of the product you are attempting to pawn. You will need to provide us with a valid government-issued ID. We will then appraise your watch and make you an offer. If you accept our offer, you will receive the proceeds in cash and we will hold your watch as collateral. When you’re ready to reclaim your pawn, your watch is free to take. If you need more time just let us know! We allow you to extend your pawn as necessary.

How to Decide Whether to Sell or Pawn Your Rolex Watch
The decision of whether to sell or pawn your Rolex watch depends on your individual circumstances.
