In the business of second-hand luxury watches, there is a fear of buying a counterfeit brand watch (นาฬิกาแบรนด์ก๊อป which is the term in Thai) instead of the original. The second-hand market is a journey of successive surprises for every watchmaker. Unique models, pieces of exceptional rarity, vintage jewels and historical specimens converge in that parallel universe.
The most sought-after pieces have the added value of carrying a story dressed in anecdotes that will be revived every time the buyer looks at the time. However, it is important not to ignore the risks involved in the sale of high-end watchmaking:
It is convenient to look at nuances as if the dial of the text is straight and that the sources are proportional and exactly the ones used by each brand. In addition, the closures of the bracelets should open and close gently, but once closed, they must be firm. In addition, the movements that enhance the watches are of exceptional quality and finish.
Identify Design Failures
Identify design flaws: packaging, logo recording, mechanical movements or noise are some of the aspects that must be taken into account. While many brands of high-end watches are characterized by having transparent case funds to show their movements, Rolex does not.
Ensure that the site or individual where they sell the watch is safe. You have to take special care with the unregulated auction sites, as well as the websites that propose encounters with a strange or unidentified individual who is in possession of a luxury watch. It is important to go to a trusted company that supports each piece and has a team of experts that guarantees its authenticity, as well as having a return policy.
Investigate The Specific Model
If the user is interested in a specific model, you have to investigate it. The reference number indicates the specific model and material of the watch, but this depends on each brand. This number is different from the serial number, which is the unique identification number of the watch.
