I don't know about you but I have extremely expensive taste. I am always lusting over pieces which are out of my price range but I am actually saving so that I can treat myself to a little piece of luxury. I don't see a problem with purchasing preowned goods, especially from Xupes, as you are still going to be purchasing a product in fantastic condition and it might even be better than what you was looking at originally from brand new at a lower price!
Xupes are based in Bishops Stortford, established since 2009 and also have a website with an online store with over 7,000 items in stock from handbags, jewellery and watches to antiques and fine art with up to 70% off the RRP of preowned and new items. Xupes bases trading of honesty, integrity and professionalism so you can shop in confidence. Xupes can also sell your items on behalf of you on a commission basis or part exchange. They have a watchmaker in house offering cleaning, repairs, refurbishments and servicing, it is recommended that watches are regularly serviced. They also how handbag and jewellery servicing available. To give you a little idea of the things you can find over at Xupes there are handbags from brands like Hermès, Dior, Chanel, and Cèline. Jewellery from Asprey, Cartier, Tiffany & Co and Bvlgari. There is the most exquisite Cartier ring but it has a £425,000 price tag so if thats your budget, go purchase! Also at Xupes are watches from brands such as Rolex, Tag Heuer and Cartier, just a name a few but there is a great selection of watch brands.
Having spent the afternoon browsing through the website and falling in love with many items out of my price range, I would definitely say this is one of the best places to look if you are looking for luxury pieces and with 0% financing available on a large selection of items it makes those items even closer to being in your hands. When purchasing high end handbags for example, you are almost always better off purchasing preowned. With brands like Chanel and Louis Vutton increasing yearly, you could save some serious pounds when you purchase preowned. I have actually spotted my dream handbag on the site, the Chanel Black Quilted Lambskin 2.55 Classic Double Flap Bag 2001, with a saving of £855! One of the main things I love about Xupes is that they have quality rating allocated to each item and also if they accompanied by any boxes, dust bags, authenticity and care cards. The handbag I previously mentioned has a rating of 9 for condition and is accompanied by the dust bag, authenticity card, care cards and has the serial sticker for example.
When I think of premium watches, I think of Rolex. As soon as a any rolex watch is taken out of the box and worn it suffers a drop in value so if you was to purchase any of the second hand Rolexes from Xupes, they could have been worn just once and you have found a saving! As I mentioned each of the Rolex Watches does have that condition quality rating you will have an understand as to the condition of the piece you are interesting in before purchasing. All of the Rolex watches are fully inspected for authenticity and condition and ensure the highest level of service and security. On the website each of the watches also has the age of each Rolex watch.
Would you purchase preowned luxury pieces?
