When you hear names like Rolex or Omega, they tend to conjure up images of class and luxury. Watches that bear these and other luxury monikers have earned their place amongst the finest timepieces in the world.
Though as we’ve seen with street peddlers over the years, and even now with the internet, there are always a scrupulous few who attempt to sell fakes pawned off as the real deal. It can be scary to drop a few hundred or even several thousand only to realize after it’s too late, that you’ve been had.
The key to buying a luxury watch and making sure it’s legitimate lies in who you buy it from. If you’re going to buy a Montblanc 1858 Nato or a Cartier Santos, you wouldn’t search eBay or Craigslist or ever hope to find an authentic piece laying on a table on Canal Street in New York.
It’s important to go to a reputable retail source or use an intermediary who can ensure you’re putting your hard-earned money towards a legitimate purchase. This, of course, would have to be an outlet that specializes in luxury watch brands.
One such trusted marketplace for top luxury watch brands is Chronoexpert. Described as a “one-stop boutique which provides everything you need in order to make informed purchases about top watch brands,” this secure website offers low prices on pre-owned watches.
The idea is simple: Chronoexpert offers a place where watch owners can sell their luxury wares. Buyers can peruse brands like Audemars Piguet, A. Lange & Sohne, Patek Phillippe and Rolex. (One of those brands is easy to pronounce, can you guess which one?) Once they settle on a watch, they pay. The money is held in reserve until the watch is received by Chronoexpert and passes a rigorous inspection.
Buyers receive a 14-day money back guarantee as well as a 12-month warranty to cover any issue that might arise with the timepiece. In essence, what we have is a middleman who guarantees protection for both the buyer and seller.
Not only is this one of the most secure ways to buy and sell high-end watches but it’s also convenient to have all these prestigious brands in one easy-to-navigate marketplace.
