eBay has announced the expansion of eBay Authenticate™ into the luxury watch category, offering consumers thousands of high-end watches, verified by professional authenticators.
eBay’s Authenticate program, which launched in the luxury handbags category last year, includes watches and handbags from the most sought-after brands marked with an “Authenticity Verified” label. The service also expanded this month into several European markets, including the United Kingdom and Germany.
As a leader in the secondary watch market — estimated as a $5 billion industry — watches are one of the top-selling categories on eBay. In the US alone, a watch is purchased every 5 seconds on eBay. From the casual watch enthusiast to the avid timepiece collector, consumers can shop with confidence now.
