British luxury jeweler Prestons has become the first family-owned independent in the world to join the Rolex Certified Pre-Owned program.
Perfect Rolex replica watches first unveiled its official Certified Pre-Owned programme in December 2022, with Bucherer its first partner in Europe and the United States.
Watches of Switzerland joined the program with select stores in America in July this year and its UK network of top Rolex fake watches doors will start CPO in the autumn, Brian Duffy, the company’s chief executive revealed in conference call with financial analysts this morning.
Swiss made replica Rolex watches feeding into the Rolex CPO system can be serviced and refurbished by the retailer or by Rolex, but are always physically inspected by the brand before being issued with a two-year international guarantee.
Rolex does not allow its partners to sell new watches online, but it is allowed with certified pre-owned cheap UK Rolex copy watches.
Prices on the Prestons website for luxury Rolex replica watches that have been through the CPO process and been issued with the guarantee appear to be around 33% more expensive that current market values.
2013 Swiss movements fake Rolex Daytona ref.116520 watches (white dial, steel tachymeter bezel), is advertised for £23,950.
Two versions of the same 1:1 China replica Rolex watches have been sold by online auction site Watchcollecting.com in the past three months.
One was made in 2007, the other in 2015, and went for £17,500 and £18,444 respectively earlier this year. Both had boxes and papers.
Interestingly, Bucherer has 2005 black dialed AAA online fake Rolex Daytona Ref. 116520 watches on sale for £28,000, a whopping £10,000 more than the same watch sold via Watchcollecting.com and £4,000 higher than Prestons.
This indicates that authorized dealers will set their own prices, with competition over time likely to drive them down.
Early indications are that profit margins for Rolex CPO watches are similar to those for new Rolex super clone watches for sale for authorised dealers.
Watches of Switzerland’s Mr Duffy told analysts this morning that it was early days to do a detailed assessment, but that CPO margins are expected to be “in line with the rest of the business”.
