Luxury watches like Tag Heuer are very popular to wear and buy. Lots of men do not seem complete without their Rolex on. In keeping with this thought, we are here today to speak about buying one specifically.

We are here to talk about how to buy a good Rolex watch without being ripped off in the process.

Just so you know, there are about ten things that every person should know before buying luxury watch brands. For the sake of today, we will be narrowing it all down to about 3 or 4 pieces of advice.

THE DEALER
You have to find the right dealer. Some people assume that un-authorized dealers are not the best people to go through. This is not necessarily true. An un-authorized dealer is as good an authorized one. You have to do your research though. Look the dealer up. Find out where he or she has done business. Find out what he or she specializes in.

There are different types:

–New
–Near-new
–Pre-owned
–Vintage

Which one is your favorite one to wear. Once you make that choice, the type of dealer you go to will become that much wiser.

FYI: A pre-owned can be just as expensive as a new one, if not more so. Do not always assume it’s the other way around. The fact that the watch has been owned before, this makes it sometimes more valuable on the market.

WHICH ONE IS THE FAKE ONE

It’s very easy for a fake watch to be passed off as a real one.You have to watch yourself. There are two questions that you have to ask each dealer you speak with.

1) Do you offer a money-back guarantee that what you are selling me is the real deal? This is an actual Swiss made watch.
2) Do you offer the same guarantee for the bracelet? Is the bracelet made of all genuine parts.

It’s always best to email the dealer about this prior. Calling them is not always the best idea. A dealer can say anything over the phone to a perspective buyer. Have the dealer show you the authenticity.

If the dealer cannot provide this proof, speak with someone else.

UNDERNEATH IT ALL

The insurance needs to be intact. The maintenance needs to be upheld by reputable trained technicians. Ask the dealer about the work that has been done, especially if the watch turns out to be used or pre-owned. If the watch has been serviced by one of their techs, you are in good hands. If the paper work can back it all up for at least a year, you are in good hands. Anything less than this is not acceptable. Do not get tricked in by the games. Some dealers will lie about this to unsuspecting customers. Get the paperwork.

ONE FINAL NOTE

Always listen to the words the dealer is saying. If something seems to be too good to be true, it most likely is. Ask as many questions as you can think of. Watch the dealer’s body language and responding time. A genuine dealer will be happy to show you his cards. If the guy is hesitant and it looks like he is blowing smoke up your butt, he most likely is.
