The long-standing Antique Jewelry & Watch Show series continues to welcome eBay at the 2022 iteration of its Las Vegas show. Held in tandem with the prestigious Couture and JCK watch and jewelry industry tradeshows, the Antique Jewelry & Watch Show is a specialty gathering of dealers and industry specialists who buy and sell mostly pre-owned and estate watches and jewelry. A lot of those fine goods end up on the world’s most popular online marketplace: eBay. The global commerce leader presented as an exhibitor at this year’s Antique Show to connect with retailers and sellers in the watches community, many of which have corresponding eBay storefronts, and to share news of recent platform innovations.
Being physically present at events where eBay sellers exhibit is an important part of eBay’s larger strategy of refining and consistently streamlining its offerings for both sellers and buyers alike. eBay is dedicated to maintaining its earned status as one of the world’s largest online marketplaces by not only listening to regular customer feedback but also by consistently increasing user trust and confidence. For example, in 2021, eBay spent much of its efforts at the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show communicating about its Authenticity Guarantee program, which automatically sends watches priced at $2,000 and above to a third-party authentication partner before the buyer receives the item. The authenticators will also compare purchases to the original listings to ensure all packaging, papers, and descriptions are accurate, so consumers always get what they are paying for. It is guaranteed peace of mind.
This past March, eBay implemented an optional expert verification service for watches priced between $1,000 and $2,000. Buyers can opt-in for expert verification for a fee of $80 plus tax, and their watch will go to eBay’s authentication partner where it will go through eBay’s Authenticity Guarantee process.
aBlogtoWatch tagged along with members of the eBay team at the 2022 Antique Jewelry & Watch Show to meet some of the exhibitors who also have important storefronts on eBay.com. The substance of those meetings is featured in the video above. What is interesting is not only the volume of sellers whose businesses got their start on the eBay platform but also how many of the sellers continue to heavily rely on eBay to help them find new customers and to ensure efficient, reliable transactions. Emotional stories about buying vintage watches and jewelry on eBay are matching with nearly as many stories about people selling important vintage watches and jewelry on eBay. To browse the eBay storefronts of the vendors featured in the video, you can check out Matthew Bain, Northeastern Jewelers, and Times Past.
The world of vintage and estate watch and jewelry sales is an important part of the larger luxury timepiece industry. This is where many of the world’s most desirable vintage watches can be discovered. It is also a way for unwanted estate assets to re-enter the world of horological enthusiasm and collector circulation. Amazing treasures, as well as excellent deals, are available to those with an eye for quality and the patience to hunt at the many brimming booths that populate the Antique Jewelry & Watch Show floor.
Members of the eBay team were delighted to finally see, on display and in person, many of the beautiful watches and jewelry products posted online by their valued sellers. Physical events like the Antique Jewelry & Watch Show serve the important purpose of allowing sellers and buyers to network and socialize, as well as to offer guests a more immediate chance to connect with products that they may have only seen pictures of. eBay is a strong supporter of this community.
See you at the next eBay watches and jewelry industry event. For those instances when you can’t view antique, vintage, and estate watches in person, check them out on the eBay website.
