Luxury watches are beautiful, but not everyone wants to pay top dollar for a new watch. That’s why more and more people are choosing to buy preowned luxury watches. If you want a Rolex, an Audemars Piguet, or another luxury brand around your wrist, check out these tips for buying a preowned piece:

  • Condition: Is the watch in good condition? There shouldn’t be any signs of wear and tear, but if there are flaws, the dealer should point them out.
  • Warranty: Does the watch come with a warranty? Top-of-the-line watches are built to withstand the test of time and are manufactured using superior materials. That being said, it never hurts to have a 6- or 12-month warranty included with the purchase.
  • Movement: Luxury watches can be manual, automatic, tourbillon, or quartz. Movement is a personal preference, but it also impacts the value of the watch. For example, tourbillion watches are extremely expensive, whereas automatic watches are more affordable for most.
  • Ask Questions: Whether this is your first or fifth pre-owned luxury watch purchase, don’t be afraid to ask questions. Reputable sellers are more than happy to answer your questions and never make you feel rushed to make a purchase.
