    Buying Pre-Owned Watches in Dubai

    Hi there,

    I have been advertising the benefits of buying pre-owned to all my friends. As one might expect, those who are not spending their days and nights online reading like a true WIS have an issue with ordering online or from forum sales.

    A good buddy of mine asked if the forums have any info on good places to buy pre-owned in Dubai? So far, I could only find a few "reports" from visiting the flagship boutiques in the malls but nothing on pre-owned shops/markets. Do you know good places to scout for pre-owned?

    Thanks to all who share their WISdom!

    Re: Buying Pre-Owned Watches in Dubai

    Hi tom,

    I have been scouring dubai for some pre-owned pieces but its a little diffucult to find. However there's this 1 shop that I found in the GOLD SUOQ area. The shop was selling pre-owned rolexe's omega's breitling's and a couple of Cartier watches. he was selling the pre-owned date just for 10,000 dirhams so that's around 2,722.38 USD. its complete with boxes papers and the warranty cards. I hope this helps!

    Wow, just one answer in a day. I thought the globetrotters will be all over the thread

    Thank you for the suggestion - although when I told my friend "go to the gold souq and there is one shop", he laughed... apparently, the souq is not a corner building with a couple of shops but rather a maze of small and big boutiques.

    I can see how this will become a treasure hunt game

    try Deira City Center (not the mall) but the actual center of Dubai, it's a huge place but I thought I saw one when I was there a few years ago.

    READ THIS BEFORE YOU GO TO DUBAI:
    http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/tra...cle3333905.ece
    Last month I saw, how a Gentleman in his 70s has been arrested with handcuffs, because they found some heart pills which are not allowed in UAE

    But when you go there,
    Ask nasrijwl@Emirates.net.ae.
    +971 42291114
    He has always nice watches for sale.
    Around his shop you will find ca 10 small shops with used watches. A lot of Rolex, Chopard, Breitling....
    This shops are close to the Gold Souk, but very difficult to find.

    You will also find a lot of shops with mostly entry level Seikos and Citizen and Orients.
    A SKX007 for example is actually cheaper than in Japan. they sell them for only 100 - 105 Euro.
    This big Seiko 5 Sports Military costs only 60 Euro.

    He's already there and doesn't like poppy seeds ;)

    Now this is something - a difficult-to-find group of shops ;) I am sure my buddy will be extremely happy to get this info.

    Is there a website or something?
