Depending on how well a pre owned luxury watch has been cared for, it can often be very hard to distinguish from a brand new version of the same model. However, pre owned watches tend to have a lower retail price than their brand new counterparts.

A pre owned watch has stood the test of time, and you can rely on their durability. When you are spending on a high ticket item, you want to know that you are investing in a quality piece.
Knowing that the watch has been pre loved means you can rest assured in knowing that there are no issues with your timepiece, and that your watch will last you a lifetime.
3. Return on Investment
Classic watches could actually increase in value over time, which could mean you make a great return on your investment.
If you are smart about your investment, you can make your money back plus more if you decide to sell your watch further down the line.
4. Iconic Models
Buying pre-owned can give you access to limited edition rare models or models that are no longer in distribution.
Take the Rolex Daytona Paul Newman edition, for example. There are only 20 pieces of the Sotto model in the world, snapped up when they were released new. Purchasing pre-owned allows you to explore any of these rare pieces that are on the market. This is a great plus for collectors or those interested in investing in limited edition pieces.
5. Classic Style
Fan of the vintage look? A classic pre owned watch could be the answer. Although some new release watches could mimic the vintage look, nothing compares to the real thing.
