Benefits of Buying a Pre-Owned vs. New Fine Watch

gears inside vintage watch: Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange Luxury Watches blog

Searching for a watch can be a time-consuming endeavor. Style and color is an obvious concern, but perhaps the most important factor to consider is the price. Unless money is a non-issue, which is not the case for most people, you'll want to find the best quality at the most affordable price.

Though some might hate to admit it, brand tends to be an important factor – and understandably so. Where watches are concerned, quality is nothing to sneeze at! Not only durability, but comfort and even style tend to come at an often unattainable cost.

For instance, buying a $30,000 Rolex may not be feasible, but who says you can't enjoy the same amenities? If you have worn various watches across the price spectrum, you've probably experienced many of the common headaches that accompany cheaper models, like the way the bracelet clasp starts to feel shoddy over time. Sometimes new watches in the $300 to $500 range can have valuable perks that distinguish them from the run-of-the-mill, but just aren't sturdy enough to last beyond a few years.

The solution is relatively clear, although many people are still reluctant to invest in a pre-owned watch – even if it means the likelihood of a much higher quality product at a reasonable price.

Considering a pre-owned watch raises all sorts concerns about its legitimacy or condition. If you are afraid of knock-offs, you're not alone. And you certainly have good reason, especially since fakes are getting harder to spot.

One of the first things you'll need to learn is where to purchase the real thing. Buying from a reputable used jewelry dealer, like Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange, guarantees you will not only get premium quality merchandise, but you'll save hundreds to thousands of dollars in the process.
