Second Hand stores allow people to buy watches from reputable vendors and see them in person before committing to the purchase. Depending on where you live, you could have access to numerous places where you can find the watch of your dreams.

Factory outlets provide overstock goods from brand names at a reduced cost, and this applies to watches as well. Additionally, department stores are a popular way to keep track of sales and find watches from a variety of manufacturers.

When you buy a watch from a department store, you can be confident that you are getting a quality product from a reputable institution. In recent years, many department stores have begun to offer online shopping options as well so you can access their inventory from anywhere in the country or world.

Keep in mind that trading watches is usually most common with high-end or luxury watches. However, this is not always the case. Many watch aficionados can find opportunities to trade in their current model for something different. Be vigilant of scams with this option, and ask to see watches in person before committing to a trade.

Most watch aficionados know that luxury watches occupy a world of their own. Luxury watches have unique certification processes and other considerations that standard watch buyers do not have to take into account.

The most reliable way to purchase luxury watches either online or in person is through an authorized retailer. An authorized retailer is a vendor or department store with a reputation for legal dealings and providing clients with exactly the product that is promised.

Companies such as Watch Warehouse have a large selection of watches at a discount. You may also do some research in your community to see if there are any jewelers or watch vendors with whom you may be able to work.

Many people consider other countries to be great sources of inexpensive, high-end watches. If you are someone who travels a lot, you may wish to investigate the luxury watch market to see how goods are priced. Large cities such as Dubai and Hong Kong are renowned for having luxury goods at a lower cost than the United States.

There is some risk involved when you shop for a watch online, and that risk can scare some guys away from making a move on a unique piece. While the saying about a deal that seems too good to be true holds water, there are great deals to be had online. That is if you know where to shop.

One of the best places to buy a watch online is also one of the best places to buy anything online, from wallets to shoes. Amazon has thousands of watches listed in their inventory, and shipping is generally very fast.

For watch shoppers looking for the perfect vintage piece, checking out Theo and Harris is a solid first move. Their inventory constantly changes, but they carry some of the best vintage watches from companies like Omega, Tudor, Rolex, Zenith, and Panerai.

They own their entire inventory as well, which allows them to give each piece the service it deserves, bring them back up to snuff. After purchase, Watchbox covers its watches for up to two years with its Global Warranty.

When it comes to knowledge and service, shopping at Delray Watch is the way to go. This Florida-based dealer has an online shop full of new and pre-owned luxury watches that most enthusiasts will drool over.

There are a lot of cheap watches out there, and to be honest, many of them look the part. Making a watch that is inexpensive enough to appeal to a broad audience yet also capable of impressing a discerning watch enthusiast with its build quality, finishing, movement, and design is a challenging task for even the most experienced and resourceful of watch manufacturers. The brands and models we spotlight below, in our humble opinion, successfully tread the line between entry-level value (prices range from under $100 to just shy of $600) and noteworthy quality and aesthetics.

Positioned at around $400, the Tissot Everytime Swissmatic comes in significantly less expensive than other automatic watches from the powerhouse Swiss brand thanks to its little secret, the use of an ETA C15.111 caliber derived from the Sistem 51 from Swatch. The Everytime offers versatile looks with a minimal dial design and straightforward dimensions to pair with this intriguing caliber, bringing a mechanical automatic watch from a major Swiss brand to an unexpected price point and even undercutting many microbrands in the process.

Rounding out the triumvirate with Seiko and Orient, Citizen is another legendary Japanese brand with an especially impressive history in the sports and tool watch arenas. Dating back to 1918, the brand came to global prominence starting in the 1960s with models oriented around a sporty lifestyle such as the Parawater before launching its first diving icon in the analog-digital Aqualand in 1985. Today, Citizen offers a broad collection that balances department-store models with more enthusiast-oriented options, with the Promaster collection of sports and dive watches likely offering the most appeal to the finicky watch nerd community. Despite often being associated with its excellent Eco-Drive solar-powered quartz tech, Citizen also offers a wide array of affordable automatic watches equipped with calibers by Miyota, a Citizen subsidiary. If recent years are any indication of what we can expect from the brand in the future, Citizen will continue to be a brand to watch on the more attainable end of the spectrum.

For a bit more than the cost of a meal for two at Chipotle, you can get into one of the most fun, most charming digital watches on the market. Long available at the jewelry counter at major department stores for around $25, the Casio A168 is one of the only watches in this extremely affordable price tier that is worth buying, with a charming retro display, slender case profile, and simple stainless steel bracelet, the A168 is the kind of item that reminds you why you got into watches in the first place, and when it was all about having fun.

For anyone searching for an attractive dressier watch from a well-regarded Swiss manufacturer in our more attainable price range, the Multifort Patrimony from Mido presents one of the more charming packages in terms of sizing, finishing, and design. With a 40mm by 47mm case and striking fumé effect sector dial, the Multifort Patrimony straddles the line between more casual applications and dressier scenarios, with a simple strap change likely providing additional versatility in either environment if needed. Like other Mido watches, this model relies on an ETA caliber with an extended 80-hour power reserve, meaning this is a watch you can wear to work on Friday and then set down for the weekend only to find it ready for action again on Monday.

While there are numerous interpretations, Seiko insists that the 5 is for automatic winding, day/date, water resistance, recessed crown and durable case/bracelet. That alone makes it a wonderful take-everywhere-for-everything watch.

Dive watches are sought after for great reason. They look great with nearly every outfit, are highly functional with water resistance and durability, and represent adventure more than most other watches. Luckily, more than other watch categories, there are numerous examples of well-respected quality pieces at affordable price points.

Stührling is a relative newcomer to the watch scene. As a result, the brand has garnered recognition from nearly every media outlet for its affordable, yet quality watches. The Stührling Pro Diver represents some of the best the brand has to offer which is quality and great looks. It features water resistance and date complication housed in a stylish 42mm steel case.

Because Rolex watches are luxury items, it is no surprise that they are generally expensive; however, not all Rolex watches are priced the same. For example, the Rolex Submariner and Sea-Dweller are both dive watches, yet one cost noticeably more than the other.

Several fantastic cheap Rolex watches, both vintage and modern, can be added to your collection for a surprisingly reasonable investment. The cost of a Rolex watch can be realistic for new collectors if you are looking at specific affordable models.

With the ref. 21470, collectors should expect to pay between $9,000 and $10,000 for one of these luxury watches. Factors like dial (Mark I vs. Mark II), condition, and original box and papers all impact the secondary market price.

If stainless steel Datejust watches are more your speed, then the Datejust ref. 16234 is a solid choice. With its white gold fluted bezel on top of its 36mm steel case and Jubilee bracelet, this reference is a dressier option for new collectors. 041b061a72
