Trade In a Luxury Watch Like a BMW: It's a Booming Business

The size of the preowned market is about $5 billion annually, including the timepieces sold at auction, says Jon Cox, an analyst at Kepler Cheuvreux in Zurich.

While that’s a fraction of the market for new watches, which consulting firm Bain & Co. estimates is €37 billion ($46 billion), it’s one of the fastest-growing segments in the industry. Govberg says his sales of used watches have been growing an average of 40 percent annually in the past five years, while those of new watches have increased about 3 percent to 5 percent. He predicts the size of the secondary market will exceed the new market in the next five years. (Last year’s export growth from Switzerland, about 3 percent, was a far shot from the double-digit pace of the previous decade.)

The preowned business is doing so well that Govberg saw potential in Asia and has teamed up with watch veterans in the region to launch WatchBox, an e-commerce platform for buying, selling, and trading secondhand luxury timepieces. WatchBox opened a new store in Hong Kong in September, which has seen sales of $3 million every month since opening, and is planning locations in the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, and Neuchâtel, Switzerland, this year. Govberg Jewelers, a third-generation family company with an average transaction price of $10,000, has even begun to accept Bitcoin.

Foreclosure Victims Say Donald Trump's Economic Advisor Drove Them Out of Their Homes

Denise Subramaniam doesn’t  like to think of herself as homeless. A former software engineer, she has several chronic illnesses, including one known as multiple chemical sensitivity, which causes her to react to allergens and chemicals common in interior spaces. So this January, when LNV Corporation foreclosed on the Portland, Oregon, home she’d inhabited for 20 years, she had no option other than her Jeep.

Every morning, Subramaniam wakes up in the driveway of a friend’s subdivision. Her possessions are stored in a small shop. “I’m not on the street,” she said. “I’m trying to hang in there.”

These days, Subramaniam is less concerned with finding a place to live than with filing legal briefs at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

She’s acting as her own lawyer in a  case against LNV , which if successful would transform the way foreclosures are adjudicated in America. The suit alleges that LNV forged evidence to prove it owned her loan, and that the summary judgment for foreclosure issued by the lower court violates constitutional protections regarding due process.
