Finding the best deals on a luxury watch in Tokyo could be difficult, especially if you do not speak or read Japanese.

With a foreign passport you can in most shops buy tax free (8% off). Some places display the price excluded tax. Remember to bring your passport to the store. If you want to pay with credit card the name of the passport holder and card needs to be the same. The easiest way to explore the second hand watch market in Tokyo is to take train between the different stations. All my favorite places are located in walking distance from a station. The destinations mentioned here can be reached by Yamanote line and Chuo line. Let us start the day in Shibuya at Shibuya station.Where to buy a second hand Rolex in Tokyo Japan.

Most luxury dealers also sell pre-owned Patek Phillipe, Omega and Audemars Piguet among other high end brands. The businesses, companies and locations mentioned in this post are places that I am not connected with in any way other than being a customer. Before going on a quest to find your second hand watch I recommend that you do some research on prices and how to spot fake watches. From my experience in Tokyo buying from reliable sources you are certain to get what you pay for.

I recommend checking the websites to see the price level in the different stores. Use a laptop and translate in the browser, most pages are in Japanese. A visit to the different shops are necessary as you often will find more models than the ones listed online. Often the best deals never make it online. If you spend half a day you are able to check out the places I find most interesting and where I feel I am able to make the best deals. It is not common to negotiate on the price, however there can be promotions in the store, for instance “3% off – Chinese New Year Sale”.Where to buy a second hand Rolex in Tokyo Japan
