EBay Luxury Holiday Pop-Up to Stock Rare Rolex Model
It is one in a series of pop-up shops and will also carry watches from Richard Mille, Audemars Piguet, and IWC.
The “Hard To Find” eBay luxury pop-up shop will open in Miami from Dec. 10-11, selling Hermès Birkin and Kelly bags, gifts from Gucci’s “Psychedelic” and “Floral” collections, and rare timepieces from Richard Mille, Audemars Piguet, Rolex and other brands.
The company told National Jeweler these hard-to-find watches will include:
— Richard Mille men’s RM11-04 Mancini Carbon TPT;
— Audemars Piguet Royal Oak self-winding Flying Tourbillon Green Dial;
— Richard Mille RM35-02 automatic-winding Rafael Nadal men’s watch;
— Rolex Daytona men’s Platinum Ice Blue Dial watch; and
— IWC Portugieser Tourbillon Mystère Rétrograde Platinum 5044.
As for the exact location of the luxury pop-up, that may also be hard to find, as eBay is taking a speakeasy-style approach to these holiday shops.
Customers will have to check eBay’s social media channels the day before launch for helpful hints, though the final location won’t be revealed until opening day.
