It’s no secret that the second-hand watch market is booming. Now Mr. Porter wants to make it easier to find the right pre-owned luxury watch.

Wednesday, Net to wear and Mr Doorman has launched an exclusive partnership with pre-owned watch specialist, Watchfinder & Co. Debuting in the United States, the collaboration marks the two online retailers’ first step into the pre-owned luxury watch market. Thanks to the new initiative, Watchfinder & Co. brings its pre-owned watches to US customers using data to help create a curated selection. The collection offers 15 new brands and 108 models, including unique limited editions and rare discontinued models from the past three decades.

Collectors will find a dedicated “Pre-owned by Watchfinder & Co.” referenced section on both sites, supplemented by in-house watchmaking specialists available 24/7 for personalized recommendations. There are also personal buyers available at both sites who offer special watch previews, one-on-one virtual shopping appointments, style advice, and access to exclusive invite-only events.

Watches from Bulgari to Christian Dior, Frank Muller, Breguet, Omega, Hublot, Patek Philippe, Rolex, Tudor and more are now available through the service. Net-A-Porter will offer a list of 26 watches across six new brands, while Mr Porter will provide collectors with 82 watches across new brands.

Developed to support online retailers’ long-term commitment to more sustainable and circular practices, the partnership also offers a coin exchange service for customers in the UK and US. “The addition of our new parts exchange service through Net-A-Porter and Mr Porter’s personal shoppers will also make it easier for their customers to refresh their watch collections or spend that newly acquired credit on other departments of Net-A-Porter and Mr Porter,” said Arjen van de Vall, CEO of Watchfinder & Co.

In a statement, the two online retailers confirm that each watch stocked through the service has been meticulously inspected, authenticated and prepared by Watchfinder & Co.’s team of expert watchmakers in Europe. Collectors will also benefit from a 24-month Watchfinder & Co. warranty as standard for purchases on the specialist’s site.

If you are based in New York, you can buy and receive the pre-owned watches in just a few hours by selecting the same day delivery service from e-tailers. All other US customers will be able to choose Next Day and Standard delivery methods for their purchases. To shop selected collections now, visit Net-A-Porter.com and Mr Porter’s website.
