The prospect of buying a pre-owned Rolex watch may seem a little daunting, but it can actually be a very smart investment. Similar to buying a new car, when you purchase a new Rolex watch from a high-priced retailer, you’re often paying inflated prices, up to 30%. At Modell, we offer competitive pricing on an a wide array of high-end, pre-owned watches. In contrast, a pre-owned Rolex or other high-end watch will tend hold its purchase value over time. In fact, your watch may end up being worth more than its purchase price in the future, especially if the model you purchased becomes a collector’s item.

Buying a pre-owned Rolex or other high-end watch is also a great gift idea, one that lets you make a big impression for a fraction of the cost. If you have a specific dollar amount you’re willing to spend on a watch, buying pre-owned can get you a bigger, better watch for your budget.

The friendly and knowledgeable staff at Modell can guide you through the complexities of purchasing a pre-owned high-end watch – Rolex, Patak Phillipe, Cartier, etc. – and help you determine which time piece is right for you.
