WatchBox COVID-19 Update from our Global CEO


Update from WatchBox CEO

The last few weeks have been a challenging time, as we’ve all had to deal with the effects of the COVID-19 spread.  We have taken measures to ensure that the health and safety of WatchBox’s clients, team, and greater community remain our highest priorities.

WatchBox is a global business and we have been operating in Asia since the virus first appeared. We have been able to operate effectively in these circumstances and have applied best practices learned to our other global locations.

WatchBox remains open to serve your pre-owned watch needs during this period and we are accessible through our regular channels, however during this time, we have closed our headquarters to visitors in the US. Please note our offices in Switzerland, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Dubai remain open, and we have implemented proactive policies to help with containment efforts. Please call your local WatchBox office for an appointment or up-to-the-minute details before visiting.

We have implemented a work-from-home policy for staff who are able work remotely and have introduced split shifts in our offices to minimize the number of people in our offices at any given time. We are taking the necessary precautions to ensure that our offices remain safe. With these actions, WatchBox will continue to serve our global watch community. During this time, our global team of client advisors are working 24/7 to connect you to the WatchBox platform to buy, sell, and trade.

For so many of us, watches represent enjoyment, entertainment, community, a way to escape from the ‘every day,’ and so much more. With much of the world confined to their homes, we want to virtually come together as a global watch community. During these unprecedented times, we hope that our content and community can provide a welcomed respite from the news of the day.

Please stay tuned to our YouTube channels and Instagram account for additional programming and opportunities to LIVE chat with your fellow watch enthusiasts. Subscribe to our channels to be notified when new content is posted.

It will be a long recovery for those affected by COVID-19. Please consider making a donation to charities that provide assistance. Here are 2 organizations rated 4-stars by Charity Navigator that have established COVID-19 funds: Disaster Philanthropy and Americares.

Our thoughts remain with those affected by this global pandemic and we look forward to an eventual return to normalcy. We will keep you posted on any WatchBox developments. Until then, please take care of yourself and your families.

Global CEO
