With Father’s Day, graduations and summer right around the corner, it’s time to start searching for the ideal gift or gifts for the important people in your life (even if that important person is you). Watches continue to be a popular present for those furthering their education or getting their degree, and let’s face it, what dad out there doesn’t want to be able to verify the time of the big game with an impressive wrist adornment about which he can brag to his neighbors or fishing buddies? But this style guide takes it a step further by also suggesting an accompanying wallet to go along with said timepiece. And not only are we going to do the work for you (matching the watches and the wallets… you’re welcome), but we are going to make it even easier to shop for the watch and wallet combo of your dreams by offering some tips to ensure they are the real deal by opting into eBay’s expert verification process for watches and leveraging their Authenticity Guarantee for wallets. Not sure what that is? Never heard of that before now? Allow us to elaborate a little further.
eBay is offering clients who purchase a watch between the $1,000.00 and $2,000.00 price range the option – at checkout (for a cost of $80 plus tax) – to have the watch independently and expertly inspected and verified by eBay’s third-party authentication partners. Should the buyer opt into this service, the watch they’re looking to purchase will be sent to eBay’s authentication partner where it will go through their Authenticity Guarantee process. It is here that industry experts will conduct a thorough, multi-level inspection, thus verifying the watch is authentic and as described, as are any accessories and packaging that should accompanying it. Once that happens – BOOM – the expert verification kicks in for the purchaser, which will make them look doubly good when they gift the watch to the person for whom they bought it.
But wait! There’s more! If you’re looking for a watch over $2,000.00, it is automatically eligible for eBay’s Authenticity Guarantee service and wallets on eBay listed for more than $500.00 from 15+ top designer brands will also be accompanied by an Authenticity Guarantee badge, denoting their eligibility for eBay’s service. Think brands the likes of Chanel, Gucci, and Hermès, all being authenticated. No headaches. No worries. Just peace of mind and the status to go along with it.
