After working for decades in the luxury watch industry, Richard and Larry Birnbaum decided it was high time for a better way to shop for fine timepieces. Within the luxury watch industry, one end of the spectrum has authorized retailers selling brand new watches at the full retail price, while at the other end, pre-owned watch markets are selling used watches at discounted prices. Taking advantage of their global contacts, longtime experience, and specialized knowledge, they established a company that could offer guaranteed authentic timepieces at a fraction of retail. Meet ShopWorn, an online retailer that exclusively sells store-display model watches from authorized retailers. ShopWorn now offers the best of both worlds by combining the appeal of purchasing a store-display watch from an authorized retailer while still receiving an incredible discount.
The ShopWorn Watch Difference
A ShopWorn watch is unique in that it does not fall into either the new or used category. As a store-display watch model, it has spent most of its life either behind a glass window, securely stored in a safe, or briefly tried on by a potential customer in the shop.
Since a ShopWorn watch has only ever been carefully handled by boutique employees, its condition is virtually flawless. In fact, this is a guiding principle of the ShopWorn buyer team—to only purchase watches that are in as-new condition with no visible signs of wear. In addition to buying pieces from authorized retailers, ShopWorn also sources directly from watch brands themselves buying their “shopworn” stock. The team regularly travels around the world, visiting boutiques and European watch manufacturers so ShopWorn clients can enjoy a beautifully curated collection of never-before-sold watches at a great value.
Current brands available on the ShopWorn website include coveted names like Hublot, Ulysse Nardin, Breitling, Carl F. Bucherer, Graham, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Alpina, Omega, Bovet, and more. However, as a growing company, new brands are constantly being added to the ShopWorn lineup.
The ShopWorn Promise
Buying from ShopWorn means being the very first owner of the watch since it’s never been previously sold. Of course, every timepiece on the ShopWorn website is 100% guaranteed authentic, complete with brand packaging and corresponding paperwork. For an even more worry-free experience, there’s also a two-year international warranty to cover any manufacturer defects. Shipping is also a seamless process with free 2-day shipping within the US and flat rate international express shipping for international orders.
ShopWorn’s concept now presents a way for savvy shoppers to find their favorite luxury watch brands in topnotch condition at very competitive prices. New watches arrive daily on the website and sell out just as quickly. Stay up to date with ShopWorn’s ever-evolving collection by frequenting their new arrivals page, signing up for their newsletter, or following their Facebook or Instagram pages.
