Our expertise

Cresus n°1 on the market of second hand luxury watches. For more than 20 years, Cresus has been accompanying you in the search and acquisition of your ideal luxury watch. Composed of passionate experts, our team offers you a considerable choice - more than 1000 references - of watches and jewelry at the best price, in excellent condition, and always with guaranteed authenticity and traceability.

Cresus expertise

All our watches are systematically cleaned, serviced and polished in our integrated watchmaking workshop.

When the original bracelets do not meet our high standards, we replace them with new models signed Cresus. These bracelets are handcrafted in France by a company that also supplies major Swiss brands.

We take the greatest care of our articles to present them to you in an irreproachable state.

The more experienced also see in the second hand market the unique opportunity to acquire a rare model, difficult to obtain new, or no longer produced, a model of collection. The second hand market is therefore a smart and modern "good plan" that allows everyone to get the best deal without giving up the quality of the products and services. In addition to its immediate advantage, the savings made will allow you to change your watch more often or to acquire a new timepiece, depending on your desires.

A good plan that also applies to second-hand luxury jewelry!

Acquiring a second-hand luxury watch is not always an easy task. Cresus brings you all its know-how and experience to advise you in the best possible way and to meet all your expectations.

Whether you are looking for a classic watch or a more rare model, our in-depth knowledge of watches and the second-hand market allows us to offer you the best articles from Swiss manufacturers, rigorously selected and authenticated.

We take particular care in authenticating watches, so that we can offer them to you in complete security. This expertise includes the verification of the watch case, its movement, and the correspondence of one with the other.

Then, all the peripheral elements (hands, buckles, crown rods, etc.) are checked.

The references and serial numbers of the case and the movement allow us to date the production of the object and confirm its authenticity.

In 20 years, Cresus has already sold 50,000 watches from Rolex, Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC, Breitling, Omega, Cartier, Patek Philippe, and many others.

In each boutique or on the Cresus website, we are able to appraise your watch, authenticate it, and propose a buy-back offer consistent with the model offered and the current market; whether it is an immediate buy-back, a deposit-sale offer or an exchange for a new favorite.
