A Rolex timepiece is firmly established in the public consciousness as one of the ultimate status symbols, so it is no surprise that so many people seek to buy them. However, while many people automatically opt to buy a brand-new model, we believe people should consider purchasing a pre-owned Rolex instead.
The single biggest moment of depreciation for a watch is the moment when it goes from being ‘new’ to ‘pre-owned’. Therefore, just like a new car, when you buy a brand-new Rolex, it depreciates in value instantly, even before it has sustained a single scratch or lost a single second in time. By contrast, second-hand Rolex watches depreciate far slower. Put simply, this means that should you ever decide to sell your watch, you will take less of a hit. Chances are, after a year of use, your pre-owned Rolex will be worth roughly the same as it was when you bought it. Conversely, a brand-new Rolex, after one year of use, will be worth substantially less.
Wider Selection Of Inventory Available At Purchase
While buying a brand-new watch has its advantages, the simple truth of the matter is you are restricted to buying the Rolex models that are currently on sale. If a collection is given a makeover, the watch you had your heart set on might no longer be part of it. Meanwhile, limited edition models are only sold as new for a short period. By contrast, if you look at the pre-owned market, you will find a far wider selection of Rolex models to choose from. When browsing Johantgen Jewelers in Crystal, MN, you may find discontinued models, extremely rare timepieces and previous versions of existing models, which may be made from different materials, or have different features.
Rolex Watches Are Engineered To Last
