Even though Watches & Jewelry brands have a tenuous relationship with Amazon, as many luxury brands do, they invest in Amazon visuals more than any other product category. Just 8% of Watches & Jewelry brands officially distribute on Amazon, and many of those deny their relationship with the retailer. (Baume & Mercier, Cartier, Omega and Tag Heuer deny any involvement with Amazon, even though Amazon advertises their watches on the Amazon store.)
