05 Feb The Benefits of Buying a Pre-Owned Luxury Watch
Luxury watches are not only a status symbol, they’re usually timeless, and the quality behind them will last you a very long time.
For these reasons, the higher price for a luxury watch is actually justifiable. But what if we told you that you could get one of these great luxury watches without breaking the bank. Purchasing a pre-owned luxury watch is a fantastic alternative to buying brand new, and here are a few reasons why.
As mentioned above, luxury watches can be quite pricey. Why not save some money and buy yourself a gently-used model? Much like a car, the value depreciates after buying it new, but since luxury watches never go out of style and literally keep on ticking, you’re good to buy a previously loved version.
Since you’ll be getting a heck of a deal, you may even want to pick up more than one. Although most luxury watches are pretty classic, you may want a few different styles or brands in your repertoire. And if you’re not spending a fortune on one, you absolutely can. In fact, most people who have a large collection of luxury watches usually buy at least a few pre-owned versions.
Not Much Can Go Wrong
Unlike when buying a car where faulty brakes or previous accidents can often go unreported, the luxury watch market is a bit different. Watches are easier to look at and determine if it’s in good working condition making it less likely you’ll buy a “lemon”.
Although luxury watches and timeless style go together, they’ll often differ from year to year to keep on-trend. Looking through the previously loved watch market you may find a gem (or two) that reminds you of a beloved watch you had years ago. Perhaps one that your father owned, or something a little different and exciting than what you’ve been seeing around.
A Few Things To Remember
Do Some Research
You should have some idea what you’re looking for in a watch before you go shopping. There are many different brands and types of watches, and you add more options when you buy pre-owned as those can go back many years. It’s good to see what’s out there that catches your fancy, but you may want to go in with a few brands in mind. Know what uses you’ll want it for – work, everyday life, special events, etc.
Go To A Reputable Dealer
Although buying pre-owned watches is a lot safer than buying pre-owned cars, you still want to make sure you’re dealing with someone who knows what they’re doing. It may be tempting, but buying a $40 Rolex off Bob on e-Bay who has zero feedback is probably not your best bet. A store that has a reputable jeweller is going to be your best bet for buying a quality piece. Plus, you can see it and examine it close up before you invest in it.
