In some cases, the watch you see we are selling may not have been purchased at the buy price shown. Also, certain watches are less popular than others and happen to leave our shelves less quickly. These watches have the biggest difference between the buy and sell prices because we hold them longer to sell them. Another reason could be service costs since the more complicated movements have a higher cost for service than others.
