For those who are passionate collectors, a watch can hold historical significance too, much like fine jewelry. And regardless of whether your watch has a history is brand new, there is something very special about buying or being given an opulent, designer accessory like a Rolex.
Have you considered a second-hand Rolex? One that is nearly new. For a genuine watch at an excellent price, try a luxury watch retailer. They offer a huge range of watches to purchase online but check TrustPilot before buying to be sure you have chosen a reliable supplier. You will also save airfares if you buy your watch online so you will find that you have more money to play with when finding the perfect Rolex.
With the worry of purchasing an unauthenticated watch when you travel and the fact that the travel itself costs a great deal (even if you are simply buying a low-cost flight), it makes the most sense to buy your Rolex from a reputable dealer online or in a European Country from a reputable dealer where you can claim the tax back.
Shopping online on eBay or Etsy instead of going to an reputable dealer may result in you buying a fake Rolex. The trade of fake goods has slightly risen in 2019 and accounts for 3.3% of the global trade. That's why you'll need to know how to tell the difference between the two.
Rolex watch collectors prefer to buy pre-owned models as the option offers them a wide range of vintage and limited edition models that are no longer in production. If you missed the opportunity to buy a specific Rolex model that has been discontinued, then buying a used Rolex is the option for you. Also, used models increase in value with time as they become rarer in the wristwatch market.
Similar to when you're buying a new Rolex, you'll need to have an established price range for a pre-owned model. Also, check the prices of recently sold watches on eBay to get a solid understanding of the current market prices.
Whether you're buying from an independent dealer, a company or website, check the online reviews to see if they vouch for their credibility. Google reviews, Facebook or Yelp are good places to test your potential seller's reliability.
Rolex watches are not only luxurious, but practical too. They are typically fitted with complications and features that are useful rather than whimsical. However, if you know where to look and which models to add to your list, you can also score a great deal by buying a pre-owned Rolex.
If you are buying a high value Swiss mechanical watch, it if often worth having it shipped, as when the paperwork is completed properly there is not import duty/tax on Swiss mechanical movements. This means that if you were to buy a watch with a tax free price of say $30,000.00 ($36,000.00 inc tax), the movement could make up to 80% of the cost of the watch so the case would be valued at $6,000.00 on which you would be charged 6.5% or $390.00 with shipping costing about $800.00, so saving about $1000.00 against just declaring it on entry to the US. Now for the crazy part a $500,000.00 Patek Philippe minute repeater will have a similar case value the amount of duty would be the same, the shipping would be more for the insurance (maybe $2,000.00) but you would still only have to pay about $500,00 Tax/duty and then have paperwork to show the watch was tax paid.

Fake versions of famous Swiss brands, such as Omega, Cartier, and Rolex, proliferate. Some of the watches are very well done, making it hard for many people to resist the lure of buying a pricey gold, diamond-studded Rolex for just $25 or $50.
The head of legal services at the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property, Juerg Herren, tells VOA people should not think that buying fake goods is just a petty crime. He calls it a serious matter, which must be discouraged. He says the new law, which comes into effect July 1, closes a loophole that allows individuals to enter the country with fake goods they buy for themselves.
Your rationalization of stealing sickens me. Just because YOU don't think something is worth X dollars (or worse yet, just because YOU don't want to spend X dollars for it right now) does not justify someone making knockoff of it and you buying it. And by the way, I could (barely) afford a Rolex right now, but there is no way I would buy one now or later.
