Numerous luxury car owners share a secret they may not want to divulge : their highly covetable Porsche, Ferrari or Jaguar may be a showroom or pre-owned model. Both the pre-owned and showroom luxury car markets offer buyers more affordable options on highly desired models.
Showroom models in particular may not have the mileage, along with the wear and tear that pre-owned models may have, but they do experience some wear with customers checking the vehicles out, not to mention their exposure to everyday lighting in the showrooms. Although the savings on showroom models are considerably less than pre-owned, they are still exceptional values.
The same holds true with luxury wristwatches. Many luxury timepieces hold their prestige and value over time. In addition, both store display and pre-owned models offer substantial savings too. Store display and pre-owned watches are highlighted this week at TheWatchery.com with our Affordable Elegance Event.
