While eBay was originally created as an online auction website that used the power of the internet to connect buyers and sellers, the company has steadily grown over the years and transformed into a multi-billion-dollar, publicly traded entity. Despite its exponential growth in the time since it was founded in 1995, connecting enthusiast communities and providing them with a reliable and secure user-to-user e-commerce platform remains at the core of eBay’s DNA today. However, that doesn’t mean that eBay’s existence is limited to the digital space.
eBay has been bringing its offerings to life outside of the digital world, through activating at live events, expanding its offerings, and improving the overall experience for its customers. eBay is also aligning itself within other aspects of global culture, and the company just recently partnered with GBK Brand Bar to host an exclusive Luxury Lounge at this year’s 74th Emmy Awards.
Taking place in the heart of Beverly Hills at the iconic Beverly Wilshire Hotel, the eBay & GBK Brand Bar Luxury Lounge consisted of a two-day celebrity gifting space with over $60k worth of gifts and trips handed out to celebrate television’s best and brightest stars. Showcasing eBay’s unparalleled selection of authentic luxury goods, including watches – which included styles provided by WatchBox, handbags, and jewelry, celebrity guests and those attending were gifted an eBay gift card to shop its unparalleled selection of authentic luxury goods following the event. In addition to receiving a vast assortment of other luxury items, those attending the eBay & GBK Brand Bar Luxury Lounge were also given vacations to Turks and Caicos and the Dominican Republic, along with a six-month supply of hummus and even a five-day African safari from a variety of participating brands and vendors.
As part of the Emmy Awards celebrations, aBlogtoWatch has collaborated with the folks at eBay to put together a curated selection of watches that are inspired by the various timepieces worn by the characters in this year’s Emmy-nominated TV shows. Additionally, along with watches from the most recent seasons of top-rated shows, eBay’s curated sale also includes other legendary timepieces, handbags, and jewelry that can be spotted on characters from some of the most famous and celebrated television shows of all time. The Emmy-themed selection of luxury products will be available on sale on eBay’s website through October 3rd, and you can shop the complete selection of Emmy Awards Show watches right here.
Beyond hosting luxury lounges at the Emmys and organizing in-person events to help connect buyers with local vendors, eBay has also been expanding the service offering on its platform. A big part of this initiative includes adding additional layers of trust and confidence for those who buy and sell luxury goods, including high-end watches, through services like expert verification for watches priced between $1,000-$2,000 USD, and Authenticity Guarantee for any watch that has a value of $2,000 USD and above.
