Watch enthusiasts worldwide can agree that “Rolex” and “luxury” go hand in hand. A Rolex is seen as one of the ultimate status symbols of class and sophistication. Owning a Rolex Del Mar is a dream many people chase after. Unfortunately, some believe they’ll never get there because of the price. We choose to believe the exact opposite.
If a Rolex is your dream watch, Leo Hamel Fine Jewelers in Del Mar can help make that happen. The trick we have up our sleeve? Purchase pre-owned Rolex Del Mar. Besides wearing the most well-known Swiss watch brand, there are many benefits that come from purchasing a pre-owned Rolex. So, why should you consider purchasing a used Rolex instead of new?
The most obvious benefit to purchasing a pre-owned Rolex Del Mar is the price you will pay. A brand new Rolex can be a very expensive investment, especially for the first-time buyer. A great way to find your dream Rolex without breaking the budget is by shopping pre-owned. The price of a used Rolex Del Mar will be significantly cheaper than the price of a new Rolex, sometimes thousands of dollars cheaper. This allows you to save money yet still be part of the exclusive Rolex owners club. And with the money you save, you might even be able to purchase a more extravagant Rolex, rather than an entry-level model. Bet you never thought you could save money when purchasing a classy wristwatch like Rolex!
Another great advantage of purchasing a used Rolex is its value. A pre-owned Rolex depreciates in value a lot slower than a new Rolex. Just like with automobiles, a new Rolex depreciates in value the moment you leave the store. A used Rolex has already gone through this initial decrease in value, so its value will depreciate much slower.
Think of it like this: say you purchase a brand new Rolex and decide to sell it a year later. Even if it’s in pristine condition, it will be worth considerably less than what you paid for it, just because it’s now a used watch. Conversely, after a year of use, a used Rolex Del Mar will be worth closer to what you paid for it. Therefore, your wallet will take less of a hit.
There are also circumstances where a used Rolex can even increase in value. A specific model may be discontinued or new technology can turn an older model into a collector’s item. This would make your pre-owned Rolex Del Mar much rarer, essentially driving its market value up.
When shopping pre-owned Rolex Del Mar you have the opportunity to view a wider selection of pristine watches. This means you aren’t restricted to only browsing the new Rolex models that are currently on sale. When you shop at Leo Hamel Fine Jewelers in Del Mar, you’ll find vintage Rolex, modern Rolex, rare timepieces, and previous versions of existing Rolex models in different styles.
