With over 2 million watches sold in 2019 alone and an average of 165,000 luxury listings per day, eBay is a flourishing marketplace for top-notch timepieces. Whether you’re a casual enthusiast or an avid collector, there are bargains to be had if you know how to find them. However, dropping a hefty sum sight unseen can be a daunting proposition — especially if you can’t decide if the deal is too good to pass up or too good to be true.

Fortunately, you can put your worries aside thanks to eBay’s all-new Authenticity Guarantee service for watches. On listings featuring an Authenticity Guarantee Badge, the timepiece will be shipped to a third-party authenticator prior to your receipt of purchase. Once under review, the authenticator will check the watch for consistency with its listing and perform a thorough examination of the crown, bezel, dial, case, clasp, hands, end links, and serial number. Assuming everything’s up to snuff and the watch gets the go-ahead, it will receive a signed Authentication Card, after which it will be sent via two-day shipping to you — free of charge. Now more than ever before, you can buy on eBay with confidence, knowing experts are there to vet your purchase.
