About Us

Beginning in 2001, a growing client base discovered the WatchuWant rooster. Known as nature’s timekeeper, the Rooster became the emblem of a new breed of online Pre-Owned Luxury Watch boutiques. Prior to Watchuwant, pre-owned watches were sold in the back alley of the watch industry. Quality and condition were poor, warranties were non-existent, and fake watches were rampant. Watchuwant believed that the market was ripe for something different - the Certified Pre-Owned Luxury watch. Over 15 years, Watchuwant introduced innovations such as an easy and fast process for customers to sell their watches online, an in-house repair and operations center with CW21 certified watchmakers to inspect and authenticate every piece sold -- and Watchuwant also brought the inimitable Tim Mosso and his “talking hands” videos to the Watch Collecting community.

In 2015 Watchwant joined the Govberg family and the two companies combined their similar visions for transforming the way Pre-Owned watches were bought and sold. Today, Watchuwant becomes part of the global WatchBox brand. Featuring unprecedented global scale with footholds in the US and Hong Kong markets, WatchBox provides the ultimate platform for Luxury Watch enthusiasts to buy, sell, or trade their timepieces with security, transparency, and the ultimate confidence in a trusted trading partner.
