It could be the economy, or maybe a wave of nostalgia, but it seems like the time has come for pre-owned luxury watches to take on their full meaning. Like used cars, they can offer great value, and once on your wrist, who can really tell anyway?
In Ridgefield, Wayne Addessi of Addessi Jewelers said business in the pre-owned luxury category is booming. “People come looking for something unique. They want something they won’t see anywhere else, so vintage and used pieces are hugely popular now.” Since his family has been in the jewelry business since 1948, he recognizes a trend when he sees one.
