Benefits of Buying Pre-owned Luxury Watches

Buying brand new luxury watches may sound appealing, but there are many compelling benefits of buying a pre-owned luxury watch from Time Source Jewelers. Whether you desire a Rolex, Breitling, Cartier, or any other luxury brand, there are many financial as well as fashion-related advantages to this approach to luxury watch ownership.

Why buying pre-owned Luxury watches is highly beneficial for you?


When it comes to luxury watches, a statement really, Rolex dominates buyers’ consciousness. Although there are other brands out there, Rolex has engraved itself in the minds of people. However, buying a new Rolex watch is not everyone’s cup of tea. A tight budget can hold you back from ordering. In such a situation, buying a pre-owned watch turns out to be a better bet.


Here are the fantastic benefits of buying a pre-owned luxury watch:


  • Used Rolex depreciates in value much slower than others

Anything new becomes old the next day of your purchase, even if it’s a Rolex watch. If you sell your prized possession within a month of your purchase, you’ll get a much lower price. Long story short, the monetary value of the piece depreciates faster, but more importantly, a used Rolex timepiece depreciates slower. If you sell it soon, you won’t lose much. 


  • You’ll always get better deals

The pre-owned luxury watch market offers way better deals on the models of your choice. However, you ought to go through our collection to access good deals. If you finally decide to buy luxury timepieces from Time Source Jewelers, you won’t even have to find out the average market price of the model you intend to purchase. Even if you know the average price, explore the used models offered by us, and within no time, you will land an amazing deal that doesn’t pinch your budget. 


  • They make for an Excellent Investment opportunity

Investing in pre-owned Rolex watches will always give you decent ROI. How? Become a vigilant investor, look for better deals as mentioned above, and finally set aside some funds to buy used Rolex watches or an in-demand model. Team up with us to make it full-proof, and keep in mind that it’ll only take a little bit of legwork & creativity. You can wear one watch for a week and then trade it for profit, buying a new one at the same time. 


  • And, of course, they’re a Status Symbol

Some folks pay more than usual attention to their status and personality. If you’re one such individual, consider wearing a pre-owned or unworn Rolex watch as it equates with high status. This way, you can also tweak your persona and demonstrate your level without spending much. Plus, a magnificently unique Rolex sings thousands of praises for your personality.


  • More extensive Selection, More Options

Choosing a pre-owned luxury watch also means you have endless models and style options, and you don’t have to limit yourself to the latest luxury watch releases. If you’re into pre-owned watches, you’ll open yourself to a wide variety of choices instead of limiting yourself to new releases. Also, past model years sometimes feature limited edition watches, allowing for even more exclusivity & value.


  • Since We assure Quality, You Can Buy with Confidence

Luxury watches are like the icing on a cake – they’re designed and crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail. They are made with high-quality parts built to last and stand the test of time—because of this, buying a second-hand luxury timepiece is far less of a gamble than buying many other types of products. Many pre-owned timepieces also come in complete sets with their original box and papers.


  • Vintage Style and Glamour

Pre-owned watch styles also appeal to those who come from a bygone era known for a specific style. Whether it’s the contemporary era or the vintage era, each watch era has a look and feel of its own. While modern watches do have their charm, vintage styles have an appeal of their own. If you want to accessorize with flair, a pre-owned luxury watch is the perfect statement piece and icing on the cake.

  • Market Value

All these factors come into play when determining the cost of a pre-owned Rolex watch. However, the secondary market also influences its worth like a stock market. Time Source Jewelers employs the same open market system, which is transparent as well. It enables us to buy and sell used luxury watches online at the best and most fair market value.

However, the demand for Rolex timepieces almost always outweighs the supply. Multi-year waiting lists are there for most of the brand’s top models worldwide. This strong demand in the market can drive the market value for specific models above their original retail prices. Sought-after models such as the stainless-steel Daytona can be sold for twice their actual value.


There are several other advantages to purchasing pre-owned luxury watches:


  1. Quality: Rolex watches are not mass-produced; in fact, they’re carefully assembled by hand. Besides offering the best watchmaking practices, Rolex also utilizes the finest materials like chemical industry grade steel which is prized for its extreme corrosion resistance. This never-before-seen quality means that even if you buy a Rolex that’s 20 years old, you know you will get technology, precision, and craftsmanship that will undoubtedly stand the test of time.
  2. Price: One of the biggest advantages of buying a pre-owned piece is that you can enjoy an enormous discount while still acquiring an elite & valuable watch.
  3. Value: Purchasing a pre-owned luxury watch is a solid and valuable investment. Like other limited-edition stuff, some Rolex models increase in value over time. For example, some models, like the Rolex GMT Master, developed for Pan Am pilots or extreme-sports lovers, and the Submariner for deep-sea divers, are amongst the most highly demanded sought-after models. Even if the model is not amongst the popular ones, its materials are high quality. Rolex uses the best quality stainless steel, the finest gold, and other valuable metals to ensure every watch is durable yet luxurious. So, it’s not a surprise that Rolex watches hold their value, allowing you to keep them, sell them or pass them to your grandchildren.
