Gifting a watch to someone you care about (or even to yourself for that matter) can be an incredibly rewarding experience — particularly if that watch is a luxury timepiece that can be held onto, cherished and passed down for generations. But deciding on what watch to gift can be challenging — style, wrist size and what watches they already have in their collection all come into play. To help, we spoke with Mark Chou, a watch enthusiast and founder of Bradhurst Ventures, and Henry Ly, the managing director of Watchmaking Project, for advice on not only what watches are worth gifting, but also why gifting a watch is such a meaningful experience.

And once you've decided on which watch to gift, head over to eBay to check out its selection of luxury watches and shop with confidence. Each watch over $2,000 is protected by eBay's Authenticity Guarantee, so you can be sure you're getting the real thing.
