Cresus' Story

Key figures on Cresus

20 years of passion

Helping you find the precious object of your desires while getting a great deal has been our passion at Cresus for over 20 years. 

A man and an idea

Behind the concept of buying and selling pre-owned watches is Christian Odin, a man passionate about beautiful timepieces.
Working in Lyon as a jeweler since 1984, Christian Odin one day came up with the great idea of giving luxury watches and jewelry a second life.

He then dedicated a small area of his shop window to luxury watches and jewelry, sparking great interest from customers and passers-by.
This bold concept turned out to be a dazzling success and in May 1993, Cresus, a shop specialized in buying and selling pre-owned luxury watches and jewelry, opened its doors. Business grew over time and the company earned a solid reputation, based upon the quality of its products and services.

In the new millennium, the concept took on a new scale thanks to Internet. Yet again, Cresus proved to be a precursor, capitalizing on this new opportunity to create the new website, the first e-commerce site dedicated to pre-owned luxury items.
The Cresus brand name and its lovely timepieces were now available everywhere in France. Since then, Cresus has opened no fewer than 5 new shops where the most beautiful pre-owned luxury watches from the likes of Rolex, Omega, Tag Heuer, Cartier, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Breitling and other top name manufacturers are displayed side by side, waiting for a new owner.

The pre-owned market, a modern way to use one’s savvy and find a great deal, is winning over increasing numbers of watch enthusiasts. With the opening of several shops throughout France, Cresus has moved from precursor to #1 on the pre-owned luxury watch market in France and celebrated 20 years of success in 2013. Twenty years of passion, both for its customers and for the art of fine watchmaking.
