Explore Our Finest Collection of Second-Hand Watches
What sets the mechanical watches of the 20th century apart from their digital counterparts? It's the ironically sublime appeal. Yes, they are timely yet timeless in the purest form, making them one of the most sought-after and favourite collectables of people who have a penchant for luxury, style, and sophistication.
Often, timepieces are made in small and limited editions. The movements feature splendid craftsmanship and beautiful engineering. And, one of the elements that make them special is the outer case, which indicates the era they were manufactured. Not to mention, their brand also provides you with a clue to their country of origin. For instance, Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Richard Mille hail from Switzerland. Meanwhile, Chanel and Cartier exude French watchmaking spirit and tradition. Given that these timepieces are limited in number, this has paved the way for the global popularity of second-hand watches.
Just like other commodities, the value of 2nd hand watches is seen to fluctuate with fashion. Drivers' and yachters' second-hand luxury watches from the 70s are intermittently on-trend. Today, they are sold for approximately £1000. No wonder, it has become so rampant for manufacturers to reissue old models. While it is true that independent jewellers sell second-hand watches and they are usually offered with a guarantee, you can count on watch selling platforms if you want to get your hands on

Guide in Buying the Best Second-hand Watches
The working order and condition are two of the key elements when it comes to buying a pre-owned luxury watch. In most cases, the more complications the timepiece has, the more it becomes valuable. In this context, complication pertains to any function or feature apart from telling the time. It includes displaying the date, day, and month. The watch becomes known as a chronograph with the addition of the stopwatch function.
Do you fancy a vintage item? Then, it is crucial to ensure that the second-hand watch for sale that you consider to purchase is in good condition. While the crown may be worn and the glass may be scratched, these can be replaced. However, entrust the job only to knowledgeable watch customisation specialists. It is important to note that over-polishing can wear down an angular pre-owned watch. This ultimately changes the setting's shape; thus, resulting in a loss of value.
Last but not least, ensure that the second-hand watch you invest in is 100% genuine by requesting for a history of restorative work and a certificate of authenticity. Do you wish to know the value of a pre-owned timepiece you already own? Then, it would help to visit experts at an auction house for a FREE valuation service.

In the past two decades, Rolex and Patek Philippe pre-owned watches have surprisingly been more lucrative to other investment sectors.
