The Instagram Account Every Watch Lover Should Follow

In Partnership with eBay

As any true watch lover knows, this is a passion that extends well beyond mere collectibility. People who share this passion don’t just build upon their personal arsenals but take deep dives into the stories behind iconic brands, vintage timepieces, famous events, and industry experts. Then we have glorious videos and photography, which bring luxury watches and their exquisite details to life and make for their own epic pastimes. Should you agree even slightly, we have just the Instagram account for you. It comes to us from eBay and simply oozes with choice videos and stunning photography. Give it a follow to properly whet your appetite while you save up for the next Rolex or IWC.

Why eBay? You ask. The answer is more obvious than it may first appear. Over the last few years, the popular marketplace has established itself as the foremost destination for both new and secondhand luxury timepieces. Not only do they put thousands upon thousands of drool-inducing watches at your proverbial fingertips, but they recently launched an Authenticity Guarantee service. To provide absolute confidence, most $2000+ models are inspected by a vetted third-party authenticator, who performs a multi-point inspection at no extra cost and even prints out an authenticity report. Next, they re-package the item and send it your way via insured, expedited shipping with signature confirmation.

Between their endless selection and Authenticity Guarantee program, eBay gives you precious little reason to shop anywhere else. It’s then no wonder that they’ve launched a separate Insta just for watches and watch lovers. Hit it up for quick video interviews with watch enthusiasts, exclusive giveaways, signature stories, trend reports, and major announcements, amongst other premium content series to come. The account is less than two months old and growing at a breakneck pace, making now the perfect time to come aboard.

eBay’s evolving Insta is yet one more chapter in an ongoing narrative, where industry experts and luxury watches play a central theme. For example, they recently launched a video campaign called Film Noir, which dropped just before Valentine’s Day and touted conspicuously high production values along with breathtaking timepieces. Combine that with the endless inventory and Authenticity Guarantee program and one thing becomes abundantly clear: eBay is just as passionate about watches as the most devoted collector. Give their Instagram account a follow and you’ll receive a bounty of horological goodness in return.
