Knowing where to start when you’re getting into luxury watches can be a bit of a head-scratcher. Never have there been more luxury watches available — and at ever-higher prices. If you are looking to dip your toe into the market, it can be intimidating. The first thing you should know is that you don’t have to buy new. The second-hand marketplace can be a great place to score the watches you are lusting after at a good price, but it can also be full of its own pitfalls. To help eliminate stresses on both fronts, there is StockX.
StockX can be the perfect partner on your luxury watch journey. Its selection of pre-owned luxury watches is thorough and diverse, with helpful customer service during every aspect of the bidding and purchasing process. We took a look at StockX’s selection to put together three foundational luxury watches you should certainly consider when you are looking to upgrade your wrist.
When you buy a watch through StockX, you can rest assured its as advertised, with StockX watchmakers verifying and authenticating every watch that’s sold on its platform. You will be able to rest easy and find the perfect watch for you — these are a few of our favorite foundational luxury watches you can find on StockX.
The Rolex Sky-Dweller 326934 is the lauded Swiss watchmaker’s most complicated timepiece, outfitted with a stunning blue dial. These are hard to find, but you can always find it on StockX. It’s powered by a Rolex Calibre 9001 automatic movement that supports an annual calendar and a second-time zone.
The next is the go-anywhere, do-anything Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time. This visually stunning watch has a few features that put it into a league of its own. The centered second-time zone is next to the day-night indicator, and the dial is rounded out with a power reserve indicator as well as the date. This Vacheron Constantin is sure to be a head-turner.
Of course, we had to include this grandfather of all wristwatches, The Cartier Santos De Cartier. It’s a steel icon, an everyday watch that is as timeless today as it was in 1904 when it was designed as one of the first watches to be worn solely on the wrist. These are all great places to start your luxury watch journey and are all available through StockX so you can get the best possible deal — maybe you could even buy two.
