Family Business Arlington Watches Opens Online Shop for Vintage and Pre-Owned Watches

LONDON, July 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Watch collectors and dealers Henrik and Christine Ljunglof have launched a new portal for pre-owned and vintage wristwatches at arlingtonwatches.com

In an industry dominated by a few major players and numerous small second- and third generation family run brick-and-mortar shops, the shift to online and mobile has only just started. Particularly noticeable in the market for vintage and luxury watches, where tradition and heritage are leading values, is an inherent inertia which slows down the transition to new platforms.

Even so, the category is well suitable for mobile and there is room for new players with the right offering. Media channels host a thriving community of watch interested influencers and potential consumers. Arlington Watches will accelerate the switch to mobile by leading the development of this sales channel for the modern watch consumer.

After cultivating the hobby of horology for years, the married couple recently launched the website, blog and news channel to market their collection of vintage and pre-owned timepieces. Through their passion for watches, over the years they have developed the capability to effectively source, authenticate, service and sell pre-owned watches. All without much of the overhead costs that the existing watch dealers are burdened with. Through arlingtonwatches.com they offer a convenient and trusted platform to buy a pre-owned watch online.

Henrik Ljunglof explains, "The value of buying pre-owned luxury watches is unbeatable. But we do go through a lot of trouble sourcing the watches. You really need to do your homework and put effort into the buying process to find the right watches for the right prices. Arlington Watches provides a more efficient shopping experience for the modern watch enthusiast by doing the research for you - it is convenient, transparent, and secure."

Arlington Watches offers certified authentic pre-owned watches with worldwide delivery, free returns and one year warranty. To find out more, visit arlingtonwatches.com and follow @arlingtonwatches on Instagram.
