Tired of wasting time trying to persuade Rolex, Vacheron Constantin and Patek Philippe retailers to put you on their waiting lists for the hottest Swiss made replica watches?
eBay is coming to the rescue with a Lost Time auction designed to give you those precious hours back.
The timed sale takes place on Sunday (which is the date clocks go back in Europe) and has a spectacular line-up of 12 pre-owned watches including a chocolate dialled rose gold Patek Philippe Aquanaut, AAA UK fake Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches with bubble dial and a Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time.
The market for second hand top replica watches has been transformed over recent years by a combination of lengthening waiting lists for popular references and rising trust in secondary market operators.
eBay has been at the vanguard of building this trust, particularly through its Authenticity Guarantee, which sees every perfect copy watches bought for over $2,000 inspected by an expert on its way from a seller to a buyer.
New Opinium Consumer Research of 1,000 adults who have bought a luxury watch over in the past three years has found that almost half (46%) of watch enthusiasts have bought second-hand luxury online replica watches over new in the past three years.
Of those, 44% said they went to the pre-owned market because they were able to find rarer and more unique models.
Around one-third said that supply shortages and long waiting lists are barriers to buying the 1:1 super clone watches they want.
Sunday’s Lost Time eBay auction aims to at least solve the issue of availability for some of the most desirable China replica watches of this decade.
Wholesale fake watches for the sale were selected after studying eBay data for signs of what customers have been searching for on the site.
For example, searches for ‘Rolex Yellow Gold’, ‘Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch’ and ‘Cartier Tank’ increased by 30%, over 35% and over 45% respectively on eBay in the past year.
