Each week, we present a selection of our favorite watches from the pre-owned side of our collection. We photograph each one so that you get a closer look at what makes these watches so special. This week, we have a creamy steel design from Grand Seiko’s Elegance collection, a brightly blue Yacht-Master, an extra-black Black Bay, a classic Patek Calatrava, and a yellow gold Royal Oak the likes of which we don’t often see.
