eBay, one of the largest luxury watch marketplaces in the world, is thrilled to join this year’s WatchTime New York, a three-day watch community event featuring watch brand presentations, industry panel discussions, and opportunities for watch collectors to engage with brands.
Joining the iconic collectors’ event as a leading marketplace for luxury watches, eBay will premiere the best of the marketplace’s inventory for watch collectors and enthusiasts alike, while also sharing its recent platform offerings in the watch space, like its Authenticity Guarantee service and Escrow payment option.
At the event, eBay will exhibit the brand’s luxury watches category, giving collectors the opportunity to gain insight into eBay’s authentication process — which includes providing each authenticated item with an NFC-enabled card holding a digital record of the authentication — while viewing and shopping iconic collectible timepieces. The marketplace will also showcase recent content-driven campaigns in luxury, like eBay’s first-ever social series, Old School Meets New School, featuring Lil Yachty and Iris Apfel, who engage in conversation over their love of watches.
eBay’s watch collector and enthusiast communities can access the marketplace’s unmatched breadth and depth to discover both lower prices on top luxury brands, as well as iconic leading brands and models that are not available in the retail market, making eBay the destination for buying and selling high-passion and high-value items in the luxury space.
Since launching its Authenticity Guarantee for luxury watches above $2,000 in 2020, eBay has since expanded the service to include sneakers and luxury handbags, recently celebrating the authentication of more than 1million items and elevating the eBay offering while continuing to build trust for its watch community. In April, eBay announced the addition of escrow to marketplace payment offerings for luxury watches, in order to provide an added convenience for all luxury watch transactions above $10,000.
With a unique and vast selection of inventory ranging from new to vintage to hard-to-find specialty items, eBay distinguishes itself from other luxury marketplaces, as it houses one of the world’s largest inventories of contemporary and fine watches, from brands including Rolex, Patek Philippe, Omega, Audemars Piguet, and more.
