I got a nice discount so I ended up paying only a couple thousand more than pre owned, and it was brand new, obviously didn't need a service, was under warranty, and had my name on it, so it was worth it for me. I guess my point is new and pre owned can both make sense...you can buy right (or wrong) either way
Of course paying 2 grand more on such a piece for new instead of used is clearly worth it, but paying retail if you can get the same watch for 30-40% less is nuts
