Buying a Pre-Owned Omega

Why You Should Buy a Pre-Owned Omega.

Swiss brand Omega has been a major name in the luxury watchmaking industry since it was founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848.

While Omega has a worldwide reputation for their expert engineering and precision timekeeping, the brand is also known for their strong ties to both the Olympic Games and NASA.

Omega’s reputation for timekeeping first came to the fore in 1931, after they finished 1st in all six categories at the Geneva Observatory trials. This resounding success led to the Olympic Committee to appointing Omega as the official timekeeper of the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics, and this was the first time in Olympic history that one brand had been given the responsibility to time all of the events.

History was made on July 21st, 1969 when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to set foot on the moon. Armstrong was not wearing his watch, as he left on board the Eagle because its onboard clock was not functioning properly, and the Omega Speedmaster Professional on Aldrin’s wrist became the first watch to be worn on the moon.

A Second-Hand Omega is More Affordable

The exquisite engineering, precision timekeeping, and tasteful aesthetics found on an Omega watch demand a hefty price tag.

A pre-owned Omega from BQ Watches can be a much more affordable entry into the luxury watch market, and there is the added benefit that you can be sure that the timepiece will be authentic as all the watches we sell have been checked by our experienced watch experts.

If you are worried that a second-hand Omega is more likely to break or be in a poor condition, don’t be! All the watches we purchase for resale have been restored and come with a two-year guarantee provided by BQ Watches. You can see our luxury watch condition grading scale to see how we rank our luxury watches.
