Why Buy Pre-Owned?
Anybody looking to purchase a quality watch should consider buying pre-owned. If you’re not sure why buying pre-owned is such a good idea, or have some reservations about buying pre-owned, then the following information should help you decide, and may even save you a lot of money.
Pre-Owned Watches Cost Less
The biggest hit of depreciation is during the transition from new to pre-owned. Many pre-owned watches will settle in price after this and depreciation will slow considerably, and some even increase in value through the chain reaction of price increases on new models, desirability and rarity.
There Are More Pre-Owned Watches To Choose From
The watch you coveted as a teenager, or even the one that has just been replaced by a newer model; these discontinued watches are available pre-owned. Choose the watch you want, from the manufacturer you want, all in one place.
Depreciation Can Be Used To Your Advantage
Some manufacturers depreciate much more than others from new to pre-owned – not good news if you bought new, but when buying pre-owned it opens up opportunities to afford far more exotic pieces than you would have otherwise expected. It also means you can consider the piece you really want without being put off by inherent high depreciation.
Buying Pre-Owned Means Selling Pre-Owned
Depreciation after the transition to pre-owned is much more gradual than from new, and in some cases nil or even appreciating. This means that if something else takes your fancy, selling the piece will not have the same sting on your bank-balance as it would from new, leaving you in a better position to get what you want.
