Second Hand Watches

We believe that the tales behind second-hand watches only add to their charm. Whether for intrigue or the next special occasion, buying a pre-owned watch gives you access to the finest names in the industry at more accessible price points.

At H&T, we're a specialist provider of quality used luxury watches. Each watch undergoes extensive cleaning and performance checks before being featured in our collection. Our expert team of in-house horologists double-check each timepiece to ensure full authenticity. If we have the slightest hint of doubt as to whether a watch is genuine, we do not put it up for sale.

With models such as the OMEGA Speedmaster, Rolex Datejust, Cartier Santos and TAG Heuer Aquaracer, to name but a few, the H&T collection spans multiple eras. We provide an incredible variety of men's and ladies' used watches, all meticulously inspected and maintained.

We thoroughly prepare our pre-owned watches in the UK. Before we display any timepiece online or in-store, we run a series of timekeeping tests to ensure it meets our unwavering quality standards. After a used watch passes these tests, we supply an authentication card and a one-year warranty with each listing.

Browse the full range online or at your nearest H&T store today. Our high standards and competitive prices guarantee that you'll find the perfect pick in our selection of second-hand watches in the UK. If you have any questions in the meantime, please don't hesitate to get in touch with our team.

Why choose a pre-owned or used luxury watch?

Pre-owned luxury watches make the truly exquisite more accessible than ever before. Whether you're buying a special gift or adding a piece to your collection, there are so many advantages to choosing used Swiss watches over brand-new models.

From Rolex to TAG Heuer, we're proud to provide superb pre-owned watches for sale, both online and in-store. Below, we've listed a few of the reasons you should consider buying a used watch instead of ordering one brand-new.

Iconic luxury watches at lower prices

Buying a second-hand watch is perhaps the easiest way to get your hands on that model you've always dreamed of. Perhaps you're building a collection or are looking to mark a special occasion with a memorable gift. Whatever your plans might be, you can rest assured that choosing a second-hand watch is never a compromise.

You can expect to find watches from world-renowned manufacturers here. We have modern and vintage timepieces available from names like Cartier, OMEGA and many more. No matter which model you choose, buying a used watch from H&T delivers unrivalled value.

Faultless performance, guaranteed

We're honoured to showcase the very best Swiss watchmaking expertise in our collection of used watches across the UK. Honouring decades of innovation behind every brand, we conduct careful testing and inspections before we put a used watch up for sale.

We're experts in watch anatomy so we know just how to provide working, reliable timepieces. Every second-hand watch must meet our strict timekeeping standards before it reaches our collection. Our in-house team also double-check for authenticity and, if we can't confirm its genuine origins, we won't sell the watch.

Long-term value

Older luxury watch models still turn heads today. This industry is timeless so, if you've been waiting for a while for a specific model to cross your path, opting to buy second-hand watches could be the best approach.

You can buy a used watch with confidence that it will never go out of style. The finest timepieces exude permanent class and elegance, especially those by manufacturers like Rolex and Tudor. Luxury watches never look out of place so, as long as you keep yours in good condition, it could retain its value or even appreciate.

Our collection of second-hand luxury watches

At H&T, we take pride in the variety of brands included in our collection of second-hand watches for sale. We have pre-owned ladies' and men's watches from the most reputable brands across the globe. Just a few examples include:

Used Rolex watches

Of all the second-hand men's watches in our collection, those manufactured by Rolex are among the most highly sought-after. Steeped in a history of innovative designs and intricate, flawless movements, the brand's reputation is unrivalled. As with any luxury used watch of this calibre, a Rolex could make a fine choice for any collector.

The Oyster Perpetual and Seamaster are perhaps two of the most iconic Rolex timepieces but any model will turn heads. Buying pre-owned could give you access to rare editions and you can browse a broad selection of men's and women's used watches by Rolex here.

Second-hand Cartier watches

If you're seeking a used watch that stands for timeless style and elegance, it's worth taking a look at the second-hand Cartier watches in our collection. Cartier tends to produce smaller, daintier and ornate watches, giving you a brilliant way to find that perfect used ladies' luxury watch.

These watches attract international attention. Where mechanical excellence and creative freedom manifest in each design, the definitive Cartier style is like no other. Our pre-owned Cartier watches are ready to be worn at luxury resorts, in the ballroom or as you cross the skies.

Used OMEGA watches

This prestigious brand sets the bar high for quality used watches across the globe. Famous for its highly accurate timekeeping and dependable hardware, OMEGA seamlessly combines technological prowess and no-fuss styling. You can find a superb selection of second-hand OMEGA watches with H&T.

OMEGA's legacy is now firmly rooted in its status as the James Bond watch. Famously, 007 wears a different OMEGA Seamaster in each film. With our superb collection from this leading brand, you could secure one of the best used Swiss watches in the world.

How will I know if my used watch is genuine?

We understand that you might have some reservations about buying second-hand watches online. When you can't see a timepiece in person before you take it home, it's imperative to know that the retailer you've chosen is also one you can trust wholeheartedly.

At Harvey & Thompson, we only feature used Swiss watches in our collection, both in-store and online, if we're absolutely certain that they're genuine. Our team of in-house horologists double-check every feature on each watch. If we still can't confirm a watch's authenticity after three inspections, we do not put it up for sale.
