Tips for Selling a Watch?

I've recently come into possession of a Movado (I believe it is the Esperanza model) women's watch, and I'm thinking of selling it, as I could use the money (poor college student). My information says it was purchased for around $1000. I don't know anything about watches whatsoever. How can I go about discovering what's a fair resale value for the watch? It is in decent condition, with some normal scuffing on the underside of the dial. Should I take it to a jeweller's or a pawn shop, or try eBay?

Can I sell on TimeZone even if I am located in Canada and don't have the original box or papers?

The guys at Timezone will not offer you any valuations; discussions about pricing other than RRP are against the rules. You are free to post your watch on the sales section though, irrespectively of where you live.

For a Movado, you may as well sell it on ebay, kijiji or craigslist. I don't know how much interest it will attract on timezone

Thanks for the advice/info, guys. I appreciate it. I did see a couple threads for the same watch on Timezone but I don't know if they ever found a buyer. I guess it's worth trying a couple venues, though.

I think Fidel is correct, you might have better chances selling it on your local classifieds or eBay.
