Luxury Watch Finds For Less…

For many of us a luxury wristwatch is more than a precision crafted timepiece. Like a fine European automobile, a high-end watch is also a symbol of success. Also like a prestigious automobile, you don’t have to purchase a costly and expensive brand new timepiece to enjoy the status and prominence of having one.

Hermès Vintage

At our pre-owned and store display watches make owning a high-end timepiece an affordable reality. Many of today’s most highly sought-after names in luxury horology are featured in our Estate and Store Display collection, including Rolex, Cartier, Raymond Weil, Hermès , Gucci, Jaeger-LeCoutre, Baume & Mercier, Corum, Omega, Maurice Lacroix, Oris, Alpina, Bell & Ross, Chanel, Porsche Design and more.

What’s more the price tags of these prominent timepieces are considerably less than their brand-new counterparts and we at provide information regarding the condition of the watch, noting any flaws it may have, as well as if the watch comes in its original box with original paperwork.

Although an original manufacturers’ box may be appealing to look at, it may also take up too much space. I personally store my collection of watches in several lined multi-watch boxes, making it easy for me to decide which one to wear for a specific occasion. My automatic watches are stored in watch winders to keep them running optimally when not in use. Even though a watch manufacturer’s manual is necessary to have when purchasing a watch, you can easily download a copy to review on the watchmaker’s website.

The Hermès Vintage women’s watch is excellent Store Display selection. This graceful and elegant women’s strap watch features the rectangular shaped case in premium-grade stainless steel, highly polished to a mirror-bright glow. The case is presented on a crocodile-textured black leather strap with a deployment clasp buckle.

The polished stainless steel bezel looks like a belt with a stationary tongue accent on top. The chevron patterned silver-colored dial shines with polished silver-tone sword hands and raised square quarter hour markers.

Cartier Libre Diamond

Features include a scratch resistant sapphire crystal above the dial and premium Swiss-made quartz movement inside. Minor scratches on the case back, a slight discoloration of a strap and slightly worn details on the strap are items to take into consideration with  Hermès watch, which is 26mm wide and 7mm thick.

Many highly coveted prestige watches are no longer in production and a pre-owned one may be your best if only option. This especially holds true with the Cartier Pre-Owned Libre Diamond watch. Beset with glamour and brilliance, this breathtaking women’s watch from the brand’s Haute Jewelry series features hundreds of shimmering round-cut diamonds, pave-set on the raised grille-design bezel in lustrous 18K white gold.

The perfectly round case in lustrous 18K white gold is presented on a white satin-facing leather strap with a tang buckle clasp. The silvery-white dial shines with polished silver-tone hands and highly stylized black Arabic numeral hour markers. Features include a scratch resistant sapphire crystal above the dial and premium Swiss-made quartz movement inside. Cartier Libre women’s watch is 37mm in diameter, 9mm thick and is water-resistant to 30 meters or 100 feet.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust

Rolex is by far one of the most sought-after Pre-Owned watchmakers, since brand’s timepieces hold their value the best. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Automatic men’s watch is an exceptional choice in premium-grade stainless steel and 18K yellow gold.

The signature Tonneau-shape Oyster case in polished stainless steel is presented on the Jubilee bracelet in satin finished stainless steel with 18K polished yellow gold center links. The signature fluted 18K yellow gold surrounds the yellow gold colored dial with a cyclops date window at the 3 o’clock hour, polished gold-tone hands and raised Roman numeral hour markers.

Rolex men’s watch is 44mm in diameter, 16mm thick and has been awarded Chronometer Certification from the esteemed COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Test Institute).

Although this Rolex pre-owned watch comes in pristine condition, the bracelet on this watch is now only 7-inches long and was probably sized by the previous user and will not fit wrists any larger than 7-inches round. It is always best to take the bracelet size into consideration when purchasing a pre-owned watch, since additional bracelet links may not be readily available and the watch will only fit wrists the same size or smaller.

Each Pre-Owned and Store Display watch at  comes with a 2-year limited warranty. Each is backed by our 30-Day return policy – if you are not completely satisfied with your pre-owned watch purchase, you can return it within 30 days.

Rolex Watches: Destined For Greatness

For generations Rolex Watches have been amongst the most highly sought-after timepieces in the world. These premium Swiss-made wristwatches are known to hold their value far better than watches from brands of similar caliber and excellence.

Rolex  dates back to 1905 in London, England where Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law Alfred Davis started importing premium movements from Switzerland and housed them in high-quality cases that they sold to jewelers, who imprinted their own names and brands on the dials. Three years later Wilsdorf and Davis opened a production facility in Le Chaux-de Fonds, Switzerland and registered the Rolex trademark name.

Legend has it the Rolex name is derived from the French phrase for exquisite clockwork: horlogerie exquise. The brand immediately gained prominence and was the very first watchmaker to earn chronometer certification in 1910 by the highly esteemed COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Test Institute).ROLEX-16253-PO

Rolex has achieved many other horological milestones in its 111-year history, including producing the very first water-resistant wristwatch the Oyster in 1926, followed by the very first watch water-resistant to 100 meters, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner in 1953.

In addition, the Rolex Datejust introduced in 1945 was the first watch with an automatic changing date calendar on the dial and the Rolex GMT Master is the first timepiece to display two time zones at once on the dial.

After the death of his wife in 1944, Wilsdorf set up the Hans Wilsforf Foundation, a family trust to insure that a portion of the company’s income would go to charity. All of Wilsdorf’s company shares were left to the trust upon his death in 1960.

Rolex remains the pre-eminent watchmaker in the world today and the brand still holds the distinction of being owned by a private family trust,
