Sixteen years ago, Alpha was thumbing through a GQ magazine when he fell in love with the Rolex Milgauss. He thought it was beautiful, but the price-tag was something he couldn’t afford. This watch has always been sitting in the back of his mind. You may also have similar luxury timepiece you love like this that is out of your price range. You can find deals for luxury watches on the Internet; however, the counterfeit luxury watch market is tough because it’s difficult to differentiate between the real and fake. You have to buy from a reputable place.
Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, and Pete & Pedro reached out to Tristano from The Urban Gentry to discuss where to purchase pre-owned luxury watches. Tristano advises to research the BBB.

Two resources for seasoned watch buyers are eBay and Chrono24. He does not advise CraigsList!

Watch U Want
After 16 years of dreaming, Alpha has his watch. It was expensive, but he has enjoyed it! Luxury watches are great, and there are incredible, less-expensive versions. If you can find a pre-owned luxury watch, it can be just as amazing as buying it new. Just don’t get ripped off.
