Everyone knows that Rolex is one of the ultimate status symbols. This Swiss luxury brand has longstanding popularity due to its sublime craftsmanship, iconic aesthetics, and avant-garde innovation. Thus, it's not surprising that several people desire to buy this luxury heritage watch. Though owning a brand-new model is a dream of many, we believe here at Time 4 Diamonds that pre-owned Rolex watches in the UK make a better alternative. Wondering why? We will unravel everything you need to know below, so read on.  


Pre-owned Rolex watches are cheaper


The first obvious reason making pre-owned Rolex watches in the UK a better option is their price. Brand-new ones can break the bank, especially if you're a first-time buyer. However, choosing secondhand Rolex watches for sale can remarkably reduce the outlay. 

Compared to several other luxury watch brands, Rolex retains its value well even after use. In spite of that, the price of used Rolex watches will still be notably lesser than purchasing brand-new. As a result, more people are able to afford the Swiss heritage brand. Not to mention, it also allows you to purchase a more premium watch rather than an entry-level model. 


The value of pre-owned luxury watches in London depreciates slower

The greatest moment of depreciation for a luxury watch is when it goes from being brand-new to used. Thus, when you purchase a new Rolex, its value depreciates instantly, even before it has lost a single second in time or sustained a single scratch. Comparatively, pre-owned luxury watches in London depreciate at a slower pace. 

This implies that if you decide to sell your timepiece later on, you will take less hit. There's also a high chance that after a year of use, your used Rolex will roughly have the same value as it was when you purchased it. Conversely, a brand-new model, after a year of use, will have significantly less value than it was when you purchased it.   


Explore a wider spectrum of luxury watch options

Of course, purchasing a brand-new luxury watch comes with a number of advantages. However, it will also restrict you from buying the models currently on sale. In the event that a collection gets a makeover, the timepiece you are eyeing on might no longer be part of it. On the other hand, limited-edition models are sold as brand-new only for a short period of time. 

Now, if you will set your sights on the secondhand luxury watch market, you will find a greater selection of Rolex models to select from. Here at Time 4 Diamonds, we offer an array of rare and limited-edition watches in stock. Not to mention, we also have an exquisite collection of bespoke Rolex watches that suit your personality.     


A secondhand Rolex may gain more value

There are certain instances when the pre-owned luxury watches in London that you buy may increase in value with the passage of time. The watch model may be discontinued, making it much rarer. Or, avant-garde technology may make an older model into a collector's item. 


Several people also buy pre-owned Rolex London, as they see them as an investment opportunity. Say, for instance, the model is slightly damaged, the repair cost may be minimal, but the increase in value for doing so may be significant. Likewise, you may be able to make modifications to the timepiece to further boost its value.
