The Difference Between Brand-New & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches
Like a car, each piece can only & only be sold once with a tag, i.e. "brand-new," & can only be sold as brand-new by an authorized dealer. As soon as the watch leaves the dealership & the warranty card has been filled out, that watch is technically pre-owned, even if it is not worn a single time after that.
A brand new watch will be considered pre-owned as soon as you buy it because you are now its owner. If you wish to sell that same watch, even if you only owned it for a single day & never wore it once, that watch is technically no longer new. It will be worth less than what you originally paid for it in the vast majority of instances.
While the amount of depreciation can vary significantly depending on the model of the watch & its use of precious metals, there will (almost) always be some degree of reduction in price that instantly occurs the second the watch leaves the authorized dealer.
