Do you own one? I've always said I wanted a Cartier for my 40th. With the big day in Jan, I realise we can't afford one! I have a budget of 1,500 which I was thinking of spending on an LV bag and purse, but saw a pre-owned watch in a posh pawn broker in Central London & wondered what the deal with buying a pre- owned would be. Xx
My DH bought me a pre-owned Cartier Tank for our 10th wedding anniversary (a few years back) as it was something I had dreamed of owning for many years. As pp have said buy from a reputable place and get all the papers and the box and you will be fine. They are more expensive atm with it being Christmas but mine was still (slightly) more than twice your budget back then.
Shop around carefully and there should be no problem with it being pre-owned
DH has bought pre-owned watches before. There's a pretty decent market in some of the high end ones and they can end up being worth more than you paid for them. You need to find a reputable shop - there's a place in west London he has used but can't remember the name off the top of my head. Will ask him when he gets back.
