Buying Preowned Cartier Watches
When it comes to buying preowned luxury watches, a brand that is often overlooked is Cartier. Why would you look here for a preowned luxury watch, when Cartier is known for jewelry and luxury accessories? Well the answer is simple, they are good.
Many people consider the Cartier Santos to be the first men’s wristwatch. It definitely helped draw interest if nothing else. Designed for the needs of pilots, and helped with the fame of Alberto Santos-Dumont men were starting to wear this formerly woman’s accessory. Buying a preowned Cartier connects you not only to the jeweler of kings, the king of jewelers, but also to a significant place in history.
Looking forward to their next massive success, you can see that Cartier was doing everything they can to put wristwatches on the wrists of men. Even the name draws up masculine feelings. The Tank, with the profile of a bird’s eye view of a Renault tank used on the Western Front, helped vault the company to prominence, inspiring many imitations. Reasons to buy a preowned Cartier watch just keep coming, and here are a few.
Class is subjective, but if you want to get an idea of what it looks like, any Cartier watch will do. The polished surfaces, the perfectly blued steel, the quality of materials, the timeless design, the whole package exudes class. Buying a preowned Cartier watch feels significant. When you hold the timepiece, you can tell that making you feel good was a primary goal of each craftsman. That is a prime example of classy.
Then there are the people that wear them. Andy Warhol, Samy Davis Junior, Princess Diana, Jackie Kennedy. Names tied to high class society, tied their names to Cartier. Why not become one of them by buying a preowned Cartier. It’s a good list to belong to, and there is a good reason they already do.
The design is a true lesson in class however. Clean dial layouts, Roman numerals, aesthetically pleasing shapes. There is a reason their most famous designs, the Tank and the Santos, have been around over 100 years. If you buy a preowned Cartier, it will strongly resemble the original. There were some minor adjustments through the year, with slight dimension changes, but the design is unmistakable. Even their modern watch designs follow the same rules. Their dials would pass for a 100 year old design. Cartier still uses Roman numerals, and their dials come in the two classic colors.
Once again, if it’s class you’re looking for, you can’t go wrong buying a preowned Cartier.
Cartier makes watches of such quality, its guaranteed that the preowned version will be just as good as new (assuming it’s been handled properly of course) . For years they have been using movements from Jaeger-LeCoultre, a predominant name in the Swiss watch industry. As the watch industry changed, so did the movements Cartier purchased for use. They were still using high quality watchmaker movements from brands in the Reichmont group. Even during the dark age of ETA movements, Cartier was using the much higher quality 2892. Now Cartier is a full on manufacturer with the coveted Geneva Seal. Buy a preowned Cartier in full confidence.
The materials in use in Cartier watches are also of the highest quality. Rarely will you see a more perfectly blued steel than on a Cartier. Being the jeweler of kings also means there is an extensive history of molding gold to the will of master artisans. The Cartier pink gold is arguably one of the best colors you will see on a watch case. This is also one of the reasons they received that seal as accuracy is important, it must be a certified chronometer, but finishing is usually weighted higher. When you buy a preowned Cartier, remember that over 170 years of fine jewelry went into that watch.
One thing that’s consistent with buying preowned Cartier watches, is the fact that they hold their value. As with most Swiss watch brands, preowned Cartier watches have a steep devaluation, followed by a level value. It’s a solid base so you can rest assured the value won’t disappear. Their classic designs are beloved so there is a good chance you will be able to replace one should you so choose.
The quality of the timepieces adds to the value. The precious materials themselves help maintain the value, combined with the exquisite craftsmanship. There really should be no fear buying a preowned Cartier. The brand further solidified the value by becoming a certified manufacture. The in-house movements were good enough to earn the seal of Geneve.
Cartier may not be at the forefront of luxury watch brands, but that is what makes them such a great value. Buying a preowned Cartier doesn’t come with the premiums some other brands command. As already stated, that steep depreciation levels out almost immediately. That is when you know it is a good brand, when a five year old watch is just as valuable as a ten year old watch. When you get to the premium of the vintage pieces, there is a significant appreciation. This is classic Swiss manufacturing at it’s finest. If you decide that the Cartier is not for you, you can easily move into a watch you want.
Things to Look Out for When Buying a Preowned Cartier
Buying anything used should require some research because you are not buying a used toy for your kids, but a luxury watch that costs several thousands of dollars.
