    Pawn shops in my area not taking Bulova watches?

    So this is odd:

    I'm trying to get rid of this watch (never wear a watch never will) so I call all the pawn shops around and ask them if they take watches they ask what kind and instantly after I tell them Bulova they say no. Is there something wrong with this type of watch? I just want it gone .

    might've been high theft in the area lately and they have to report it to police/risk losing it

    Haven't heard of any pawn shop turning down a specific watch but I know the pawn shop around here doeesn't take watches at all. They say that with the different sizes it's hard to sell or w/e

    Just got one pawn shop that would take it... For 10 bucks. Last I checked the watch was worth 100 (Looked up the style number). I know they need to profit but holy crap .

    Usually pawn shops buy for 15% of what its worth. If you're lucky.

    Pawnbroker: Burnt my fingers, man.
    Louis Winthorpe III: I beg your pardon?
    Pawnbroker: Man, that watch is so hot, it's smokin'.
    Louis Winthorpe III: Hot? Do you mean to imply stolen?
    Pawnbroker: I'll give you 50 bucks for it.
    Louis Winthorpe III: Fifty bucks? No, no, no. This is a Rouchefoucauld. The thinnest water-resistant watch in the world. Singularly unique, sculptured in design, hand-crafted in Switzerland, and water resistant to three atmospheres. This is *the* sports watch of the '80s. Six thousand, nine hundred and fifty five dollars retail!
    Pawnbroker: You got a receipt?
    Louis Winthorpe III: Look, it tells time simultaneously in Monte Carlo, Beverly Hills, London, Paris, Rome, and Gstaad.
    Pawnbroker: In Philadelphia, it's worth 50 bucks.
    Louis Winthorpe III: Just give me the money.
    Louis Winthorpe III: [looking in display case] How much for the gun?
