I have a Gucci stainless steel diamond encrusted watch that my mom bought for me about 2 years ago for around $1,200 CAD. Now, the amount of diamonds on it is minimal and they're tiny, I'm pretty sure most of the price tag was the brand itself. I realize now I really have no use for it, at the moment when my mom got it for me I was being a spoilt girl and most of the watch's appeal was the brand, not the watch itself. So I was thinking of selling it. I know jewelry stores buy gold, but would they also buy this? Also, how much are they likely to pay...would they pay for the brand also or just what it's really worth in diamonds and steel? I wouldn't sell it if I'm not even going to get half of what it's worth. What should I do with it?

I would definitely search for places that will buy your watch. An outfit that buys items like this, such as a pawn shop is one possibility. You will get a better offer from a store that plans to re-sell the watch. The condition of the watch will also be a big factor in what you get from it's re-sale. If you still have the box that it came with, that may help as well.

It's in pretty good condition, other than it's not as shiny as it was when I first got it . Also, recently one of the tiny screws fell off. Should I take it somewhere to get fixed before I try selling it or should I just directly take it in like that?
