Should I Be Concerned About Buying A Used Rolex Watch Online?
When considering purchasing a pre-owned Rolex watch, the first step is deciding if you want a used or new timepiece. New watches are the preferred quality and condition to buy a watch. They also come with the manufacturers warranty. On the other hand, buying Pre-owned Rolex watches can offer you a variety of choices due to the fact that they include discontinued models and vintage timepieces.
Purchasing a pre-owned Rolex watch is simpler than ever, but shopping online does not always guarantee authenticity or quality of the timepiece. Non-authorized online shops such as Ebay, Craigslist or even online watch marketplaces cannot always guarantee that their pre-owned Rolex watches are fully authentic. Thus, researching Rolex dealers that specialize in the online buying or selling of used Rolex watches is essential. Harold Freeman Jewelers is an authorized Rolex dealer, has been in business for over 70 years, and is a recognized name in the new and used Rolex watch market with an excellent reputation for all things pre-owned Rolex. Since used Rolex watches need to be fully certified and authenticated, make sure to purchase used Rolex watches through an authorized dealer first and foremost.
The Most Essential Part Of Buying A Used Rolex Watch Online Is Research
1.) Decide on Modern or vintage. Watches are separated into modern and vintage categories. The older the timepiece, the more research is required.
2.) Identify the model (Submariner) and it’s model number as well as the age of the pre-owned Rolex watch you are interested in purchasing. You can determine the age by referencing the serial number.
3.) Buy a used Rolex watch that comes with original warranty papers and box. This is called a complete set. Make sure to ask when it was last serviced.
4.) Extensive research is crucial. When looking at prices, it is essential to look into individual company websites from reputable dealers and compare numbers. Used Rolex watches sell year-round at premium price points, so if you’re looking to buy, sooner is almost always better than later.
When purchasing online, make sure the method of payment is secure with a legal guarantee such as a major credit card or Paypal. The business’ return policy should also be transparent and easy to understand. Reputable companies always offer some form of warranty on the timepiece.
