What to Look for When Buying A Used Luxury Watch
Designer watches are gaining popularity in South Africa. Because of this, even used luxury watches are getting high in demand. If you search around on the internet, you will see many people bidding on designer watches.
Used luxury watches are usually sold because they have just been lying in a closet or safe gaining dust.
If you have been looking for a used Tag Heuer, Breitling, Rolex, Omega or any other type of luxury timepiece, you might find that buying a used one will save you a lot, while many times, these watches look brand new! If this is something you are interested in, here are some tips to help you make the right decision.
Do Your Research
As with anything you buy, do your research about the brand. Make sure it is a brand you want to invest in.
Check For Genuine Watches
Many fake watches are circling the market; you do not want to waste money on one of these. If you do not know how to check if a watch is genuine, contact the supplier or ask a professional. Check the model and serial number with a trusted dealer. The best option is to ask the dealer if there is a certificate of authenticity included or if it comes with a box and papers.
It is easy to do a quick online search to compare a few prices online. Many times it happens that the model isn’t available anymore. You can compare the price with a similar category of the same brand. Just keep in mind that limited edition watches are usually much more expensive as these are considered collector’s items.
Is the Item in Working Order?
This is important, before buying from a shop, check whether everything is in working order. If you buy online, ask the dealer if everything is working or if they offer any warranty.
It is up to you to decide whether you want to buy a new or used watch. You will be able to get a piece that is in mint condition for a lot cheaper than a new one.
