BUYING YOUR ROLEX WATCH 

Please note that IGS Inc., http://www.sellingyourdiamond.net is not an authorized Rolex dealer and has no association with  The Rolex Watch Co. whatsoever.

          Since approx. 1905 Rolex watches are synonymous with such features as precision,  durability and beauty….all features that are endeared highly by the consumer.  Wearing a Rolex commands respect and automatically makes a totally positive statement about you.  The Rolex on your wrist tells people that you're adventurous, rugged, bold, accept challenges and that you demand precision and meaning in your everyday life and in your future dreams.  Rolex watches don’t get old…..they shine more and more each year.  They are built to last, to endure, and to continue to be high precision timekeeping watches.

          Some individuals for one reason or another, usually financial, are put in a situation where they must sell their Rolex watch.  Finally here is a site where you can purchase and continue on the tradition of proudly wearing a Rolex when one individual decides to sell his/her endearing Rolex watch to another person. It’s true that you can purchase a Rolex watch, vintage or modern, from numerous online dealers.  The prices for the watches that you see on this site should be approximately 10 to 20% lower than what you could obtain the same model of Rolex on an online internet watch retailer’s site.  There are certain recommended rules the seller is highly encouraged to follow.  Before being listed on the site the seller is instructed to thoroughly clean and service the Rolex watch by either an authorized Rolex dealer or a certified watchmaker proficient in servicing Rolex watches.  All service warrantees and documentation are sold with the watch.  The authenticity   of the watch is established by a bona fide certified appraiser in the seller’s city as well as by a similarly qualified appraiser in the buyer’s city.  There is a totally complete listing that tells you the complete history of the watch as well as a detailed description of the condition of the Rolex watch. Before any listing is entered onto the site I totally review the listing to make sure that it is fair and the price is right.  There is never any shipment of the watch to you the buyer from the seller.  As the purchaser of the Rolex watch you would set up an appointment with the certified bona fide appraiser in your city.  You can find most of the appraisers listed on http://www.diamondappraisers.net    Should the seller list the watch and have it registered with our monitoring service, then I, Martin Sheffield, would monitor the entire sale to ensure that everything runs totally smoothly.  You would be required to pay a deposit on a watch before it's sent to your appraiser. The deposit amount depends on the value of the watch. The deposit would be deducted from the price at the time that you wire transfer the fees in trust to IGS Inc.,   IGS Inc., would then forward the balance of the proceeds to the seller.  IGS Inc., charges a 5% commission for monitoring and tracking the sale to completion.  The 5% is being paid by the seller and is deducted from the amount the buyer wires to IGS Inc., Listings may also be done as non-commission‘listings only’ with the seller aware of and encouraged to follow the guidelines and principles as set forth in this website however the seller can conduct himself however he desires and the sale is not monitored in any way. The buyer however should read all the sections of the site to make  him/herself  thoroughly familiar with all the rules and insist that the seller, if not registered in the monitor and tracking program, still follow and adhere to all the rules and guidelines as set forth in this site.  All sellers are encouraged to register their watches in the monitoring and tracking program. When the seller is registered in the monitoring and tracking program the seller then must adhere to all the rules and the sale is totally tracked and followed by myself, Martin Sheffield.  All Rolex listings however are carefully scrutinized and all Rolexes are listed with the utmost of care and caution.

IGS Inc., and http://www.sellingyourdiamond.net, and Martin Sheffield,  are not liable for any damages or losses whatsoever no matter what the cause.  This applies to any watch listed on our sites whether the listing is independent of the tracking program or not. However, this system of only shipping from one appraiser to another appraiser has always worked successfully since approx. 1990 and it is very highly unlikely that you would encounter any difficulties.  The buyer and seller should ensure that all shipments between appraisers are fully insured.  The buyer, the seller or the appraiser are free to call myself, Martin Sheffield, at anytime with any questions at 800 252 1476 or mailto:diamonds@usacerteddiamonds.com

          For all registered and commissioned sales IGS Inc., keeps a complete file on the sale and monitors the progress at all stages of the sale.  The whole system is designed to keep it stress free for buyer and seller and to create a sale where the seller is getting a ‘fair’ price and yet the buyer is also paying a totally ‘fair’ amount for a fine Rolex timepiece that he/she would have otherwise paid approximately 10 to 20% higher if having purchased an identical model from an online Rolex watch internet site.
