Our Expertise

Cresus is #1 on the pre-owned luxury watch market

For over 20 years, Cresus has been helping you find and purchase the pre-owned luxury watch of your dreams.
Our staff, made of passionate watch experts, offers you a wide range – more than 1,000 luxury watches and jewelry items in excellent condition at great prices, with guaranteed authenticity and traceability.

Opting for a pre-owned watch or piece of jewelry brings a clear advantage - a lower price. Indeed, Cresus offers you prices 20% to 50% lower than those for new items.

All of our watches are cleaned, controlled in detail and polished by our in-house workshop. When the original watch band does not meet our quality criteria, we replace it with a new Cresus brand model in leather. These handcrafted watch bands are made in France by a company that also provides bands for top-name Swiss timepieces. We bring the utmost care to our items in order to present them to you in perfect condition.

More savvy enthusiasts also see the pre-owned market as the sole opportunity to acquire a rare model that is difficult to obtain brand-new or, if it is no longer produced, a collector's model.

The pre-owned watch market is therefore a "great deal", a clever, modern way to get the best possible price without skimping on the quality of the products and services.

Beyond the immediate advantage, these savings will help you to either change watches more often or acquire additional models. A great idea that also applies to pre-owned luxury jewelry !


Our watch expertise

Buying a pre-owned luxury watch is not always easy. Cresus brings you all of its know-how and experience to provide you the best possible advice and meet all of your needs. Whether you are looking for a classic timepiece or a rarer model, our expertise in watches and in the pre-owned market enables us to offer you the finest items from Swiss manufacturers, painstakingly selected and authenticated.

Indeed, we are particularly careful with the authentication of our watches so that we can then offer them to you with zero risk. This authentication involves, among other things, checking the watch’s case and movement, and ensuring that they match.
Next, all of the peripheral items (hands, buckles, crown pins, etc.) are checked.
The references and serial numbers of the case and movement enable production of the watch to be dated and to confirm its authenticity.

In 20 years, Cresus has already sold more than 50,000 watches by Rolex, Jaeger LeCoultre, IWC, Breitling, Omega, Cartier, Patek Philippe and many other top names. At every Cresus shop or via our Internet site, we can appraise your timepiece, authenticate it, and make you an offer to buy your watch at the market price for the specific model. We can buy your watch immediately, sell it for you on consignment or offer you a trade for a new model that tickles your fancy. 

Our team of experts helps to take the worry and hassle out of buying and selling your luxury watches!
