In many areas the vintage and second hand market can be perceived as equal or greater to that of the new market, think of the art world, furniture, vintage cars and others. I think they complement each other, new and pre-owned. From a creative perspective we often mix old and new together, as they often create a beautiful canvas in which to feature a specific piece of design. Interiors designers often like to feature a vintage piece of design in a minimalist designer space, as this creates an impact.
The Watch Gallery launched with a range of 200 watches including famous brands from Rolex, Cartier, Panerai and Omega.
I myself have a lovely Omega watch from the 60’s that my father wore, so understand the fact that pre-owned watches have a story to tell. Equally bear in my mind that if you are lover of fashion that a modern timepiece may not fit exactly.
Country tweeds, 60’s Michael Caine Savile Row suites, 80’s Wall Street……all have their own look and your watch is a big part of that, for example The Rolex Datejust.
I myself have many friends who work in the creative world and the importance placed on quality pre-owned goods is massive, and luxury watches are exactly the same; so I think it’s fantastic that The Watch Gallery has introduced this luxury online watch store for pre-owned watches, such as the beautiful Rolex GMT Master knowing that they are expertly examined in-house and have undergone microscopic testing to verify authenticity and provenance.
All watches have been cleaned, overhauled and refurbished, with timing and water-resistance checked (where applicable) in our dedicated in-house servicing facility.
As a certified pre-owned watch dealer, all their watches are securely packed in official brand presentation boxes, and include a 2-year The Watch Gallery warranty and are happily to ship watches globally.
