Why Buy Pre-Owned Watches?

(Watch Shown: Cartier Calibre)

If you are in the market for a high-end luxury watch, you may be asking yourself if you should consider a pre-owned piece – and the answer is always yes!

Why You Should Buy Pre Owned


First and foremost, pre-owned watches are priced significantly lower than their brand new counterparts and when purchased from a reputable dealer like they are often barely worn. This level of price differential can be found on pieces worn even just for an hour. The lower price points of pre-owned pieces also gives customers the ability to upgrade to a better model than they may have previously considered. Regardless of the desired model or style, luxury watch values tend to depreciate very slowly and when cared for properly can become highly sought after vintage pieces over time, even when purchased pre-owned.

Value and Depreciation

Luxury watches are essentially a work of art and as such can actually increase in value over time. While both pre-owned and new timepieces are considered a sizeable investment, the styles of these pieces are rarely changed making them timeless and meant to be passed down through generations. The security of knowing your piece will never go out of style gives you the opportunity to re-sell it or wear it indefinitely.

Larger Selection

Beyond the obvious advantages of a much lower price, buying a pre-owned watch also gives you a much larger selection to choose from! Luxury timepieces can occasionally be hard to find if they are limited edition or highly coveted pieces. Purchasing a pre-owned watch allows you to access models that are no longer available for sale new for various reasons.
