Pre-Owned versus New Watches
Are there advantages to buying a Pre-Owned Watch versus a New Watch?
The answer simply is yes. While many watch collectors prefer buying new, the average buyer would never notice the difference. A person looking for a high-end watch who doesn't want to pay the retail price can go online to a website such as www.timepieceperfection.com and look through their pre-owned inventory. These watches typically come with the original box and papers and sometimes even have a warranty as well.
The major advantage to buying pre-owned is price. The second you purchase a watch (unless it is a very rare piece) it does depreciate. So why not let someone else take the loss and benefit from getting an almost new watch for significantly less.
There are things to look at when buying pre-owned. The first thing to do is to check that the watch is running on-time. Many watches can lose their accuracy over time so make sure that this has been tested. The second thing to do is to check for any scratches and dents. Many scratches can be refinished but dent are much harder. Finally, make sure that you have the original box and papers. This will help preserve the resale value.
