ATLANTA and LONDON, April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Crown & Caliber and the Bremont Watch Company have partnered to offer consumers the first ever watch trade-in program offered by a watch manufacturer. Similar trade-in programs have proven successful in the auto industry for years, and both Bremont and Crown & Caliber decided it was time to offer such a program to watch owners. The program launches on May 1st, 2017 and will run through to the end of the month.
Hamilton Powell, CEO/Founder of Crown & Caliber, stated, "Like Bremont, we built our brand based on the needs of the customer. The launch of this trade-in program is a direct response to what customers have been telling us for years – that they want an easy way to trade-in their watches. As big advocates of the Bremont brand, we believe every watch owner should have the ability to own a Bremont, and this program makes that possible."
Individuals interested in selling or trading in their watch simply go to www.CrownAndCaliber.com/BremontTrade where they are prompted to enter the details of the watch they wish to sell or trade. A Crown & Caliber associate will contact the seller with two options: (i) a cash option, and (ii) a store credit at the Bremont boutique in New York. The store credit will be 20% higher than the cash offer, encouraging the seller to trade in their watch for a brand new Bremont watch.
Through this program, Crown & Caliber will accept watches from over 120 different brands. Bremont owners also have the option of trading-in their current Bremont for a new one. Says Powell, "Bremont has become such a popular brand in a very short period of time. As a result, its watches tend to hold their value extraordinarily well in the pre-owned market. In particular, limited edition Bremont watches are often some of the most appreciative watches we see at Crown & Caliber making them great investment pieces."
Giles English, Co-Founder of Bremont, says, "This programme now allows anyone with a watch the ability to own a Bremont. We chose Crown & Caliber to administer this New York programme given their sophisticated database which allows them to properly value pre-owned watches from over 120 different brands. They have created a customer experience defined by a high level of trust, simplicity and satisfaction. Furthermore, Crown & Caliber's brand is known for its white-glove service – resulting in a customer experience just like Bremont's which was important to us."
Individuals who which to participate in the Bremont trade-in program must submit their quote request between: May 1-31, 2017.
