eBay UK has stirred up quite the excitement with its latest Lost Time Collection. Just imagine: a handpicked set of twelve watches, each with a story to tell, each a testament to craftsmanship and luxury. These aren’t just any watches; they’re some of the rarest and most sought-after pieces you could dream of.
Now, here’s the fun part. On Saturday, 28th October, starting at 2 a.m., these gems will be up for grabs in a unique 25-hour auction, celebrating that extra hour we all love from daylight savings. So, if you’re a watch enthusiast like me, this is the kind of event you mark on your calendar in bold.
Let me give you a little sneak peek. There’s the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time (7900V/110A-B334), a watch that doesn’t just tell time – it tells a story. Then there’s the Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph (3970EP), a shining example of Patek Philippe’s artistry. Finally, who could overlook the Rolex Daytona Stainless Steel White Dial Panda (116500LN)? An iconic piece that’s sure to turn heads.
More and more watch lovers are turning to the secondary market, and it’s no wonder, given how tough it can be to get your hands on exclusive models. In fact, 46% of watch enthusiasts have opted for second-hand luxury watches over new ones in the past three years, driven by the allure of unique models. The Lost Time Collection offers access to these hard-to-find models without the usual barriers.
The collection also reflects market demands and trends. Searches on eBay for ‘Rolex Yellow Gold’, ‘Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch’, and ‘Cartier Tank’ have surged in the past year, and shows a clear alignment with what watch enthusiasts are currently seeking.
Chatting to Keith Metcalfe, Director of Luxury at eBay Europe, he expressed his enthusiasm for the collection, highlighting how eBay is breaking barriers, making exclusive watches accessible. He hopes that this unique auction will make up for the time that enthusiasts often spend waiting and searching for their next luxury purchase.
The Lost Time Collection boasts other classics like the Rolex Oyster Perpetual (124300) and the Omega Seamaster 007 ‘No Time to Die’ Edition (126.96.36.199.01.001). Plus, if you’re ever in doubt, eBay’s Authenticity Guarantee programme has got your back, ensuring that every luxury watch sold for over £1,500 is the real deal.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to own a piece of horological history. The Lost Time Collection will be available for purchase for those special 25 hours from 2am on Saturday 28th October.
