Everywhere we go, we usually know what time it is — at our computer, on our laptop, using our iPhone, catching up with emails on our iPad, clicking the Fitbit for your mileage, answering your apple watch and more. These are just some of the reasons that people may not wear a watch anymore.
There are some people that love their watches and will continue to wear one. Here are some of the reasons why they won’t cave in and ditch their watch:
· Great accessories
· Piece of jewelry that enhances style and appearance
· Reflects personal style
· Respect and appreciation
· Relationship with time
When you pawn an item, you are getting a short-term loan using your watch as collateral to borrow cash. You receive a loan term and are required to pay back the loan to receive your pawned watch back.
When you sell your watch at Albert’s Pawn Shop, you bring in your item of value, and we sell it.
