This is all you need to know to get up to speed with our newest addition at W. Smith & Co... Pre-Owned Rolex Certified by Swiss Crown USA.
While each Rolex is “pre-owned”, you can be assured each timepiece has gone through an extensive five step process to bring you a beautiful, refurbished Rolex.
Their process begins by hand selecting and buying only the finest quality pre-owned Rolex watches. Each watch is then inspected, refurbished and overhauled. Finally, the watch is refinished, polished and tested by technicians trained on luxury Swiss watches and backed by a two year warranty. A pre-owned Rolex certified by Swiss Crown comes with all the performance, precision and prestige you find at a fraction of the price.
