“Watches, Stories, and Gear” is a weekly roundup of some of our favorite watch content, great stories from around the web, and cool gear that we’ve got our eye on. This week’s installment is brought to you by Bezelheads, a free and open platform for peer-to-peer watch sales.
Founded in March 2019 by watch enthusiast Humphrey Yang, Bezelheads is designed to be a simple, yet powerful platform for facilitating peer-to-peer watch sales. Specifically, the brand and platform reflects Humphrey’s desire to build a community that values service, price transparency, sincerity, and integrity in the way transactions are done online.
On Bezelheads, you’ll find it easy to browse watch listings with seller info, watch condition, and other critical information front and center. Additionally, sellers who have a presence on multiple platforms across the web will be able to have their feedback aggregated directly to the listing — the sort of transparency that benefits both buyer and seller. Also integrated into the platform is an anonymous, crowdsourced pricing guide that lists a record of past sales completed through Bezelheads, as well as sales data submitted by the community from other channels such as eBay, Reddit’s “r/watchexchange,” forums, and other marketplaces. Each submission requires proof (receipt or URL link to a final sale) to be approved for the pricing guide.
