With an extensive collection of luxury timepieces, eBay has become the go-to for discerning watch connoisseurs. And now, the online market place is intensifying the love affair with its Authenticity Guarantee. The service allows buyers to shop rare, pre-owned, and vintage watches with confidence, knowing their item of $2,000 or more is the real deal. After the purchase of an item covered by the guarantee, it will be shipped to an independent third-party authenticator where they perform a multi-point inspection on the piece, re-package it in new, premium eBay packaging, and send to the buyer via insured, expedited shipping. The buyer will receive an authenticity report card that verifies the product and can be used to further boost future resale value — so you can shop eBay's substantial collection doubt free.

The only thing worse than carrying a janitorial mess of keys is not being able to find them. The KeySmart Pro with Tile solves both problems. It holds up to 10 keys in two groups, tucked sleekly away until you need them. An integrated Tile Bluetooth tracker lets you locate your keys up to 100 feet away via an iPhone/Android app. You can also play a tone if they're not visible, and it works the the other way around too — the KeySmart Pro can ring your phone if you've misplaced it. Also included is a bottle opener, a loop for attaching a car remote, and an integrated LED flashlight. The USB-rechargeable battery will last a maximum of two to three months.
