Purchasing a luxury watch is a major investment that should be carefully planned and well thought out. Have you had your eye on a particular model for a long time, but would rather pay in smaller instalments than in one lump sum? Then, financing is the right option for you. We'll explain the purchasing process and show you which financing options are available at Watchmaster.
The advantages of purchasing a watch using a financing plan
With a personalized financing plan for your dream watch, you can tailor the payment of the total amount to your needs and pay it in convenient monthly instalments. Even if you haven't yet saved the full purchase price on your account, financing is an attractive way to fulfil your desire for a high-quality luxury watch in advance. Another benefit of financing may be an increase in the value of your watch. If you decide with foresight on the right model, the purchase of a high-quality luxury watch could be a worthwhile investment for the future and easily compensate for any costs that may arise during financing. Pre-owned watches are a stable investment. Collector's items, which also include a number of Rolex models, can even increase in value consistently if they are well cared for. This increase in value may even exceed interest payments under certain circumstances. And at the same time, you will be able to afford your dream watch by financing it and benefit from its appreciation in value for a longer period of time.
Financing options at Watchmaster
First of all, it is important for you to be in a stable and manageable financial position before committing to a binding financing plan. Once you have decided to finance your watch, you can choose from a variety of financing partners at Watchmaster offering flexible and personalized payment plans. You can choose from the following financing options at Watchmaster:
- personal financing from Targobank
- a "purchase in instalments with easyCredit" from TeamBank AG Nürnberg
- a financing plan from CreditPlus Bank AG
In the case of a purchase in instalments, the purchase amount is divided into individual monthly payments which vary according to the term of the contract. If your credit check is approved, the payment will be processed via easyCredit and repaid monthly against the purchase price.
If you choose a financing plan, for example, from Targobank, the bank will assume the payment of the watch's full purchase price and you will pay it back to Targobank in monthly instalments at a reasonable interest rate.
You can also opt for partial financing of the purchase price. With this option, you will pay a portion of the purchase price and finance the outstanding balance. For example, if you wanted to buy a watch for €6,000, but only want to pay €3,000 of that amount initially, then you could pay off the remaining €3,000 in several small instalments.
