What is 'Second Hand for 50 Grand' about?

This one-off documentary goes behind the scenes, delving into the world of very high-end second hand goods. 

We are taken inside a company called Xupes, who track down luxury second-hand items, going the extra mile to hunt down the exact handbags, watches and jewellery on their clients' wish-lists and find out the personal stories behind them. 

Their clients range from A-list celebrities and sports stars to everyday people who are looking for designer goods for more sentimental reasons. 

What designer goods are being tracked down?  

The documentary will follow a window cleaner called Grant whose dad wants to buy him a Cartier watch as a thank you for looking after him. Also, Rebecca asks head of handbags Reece to scour the globe for an exact match to a stolen Prada bag gifted by her late mother. Meanwhile, firefighter Hywell has received a watch from his Grandad. If the team can prove that it's genuine, then Hywell's life is about to change for ever.
