Happy New Year everyone! I hope you’ve had a great time over the holidays. As we enter the New Year, I feel it's important to take you guys through the amazing year we had. Let's have a look at our adventurous 2017.
Valentine's Day Campaign: 7 Valentine's Gifts
We kicked off the year with our “7 Valentines Gifts” competition. Every two days from February 1st we posted an image on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram of a romantic movie and participants had to guess the movies for a chance to win a gift.
Gifts included his & her accessories, watches from Accurist, CLUSE and Citizen. This campaign gave us the chance to really hear from customers, most of which wanted to surprise their partners with amazing gifts.
Limited Edition Releases - Seiko, Citizen, G-SHOCK & More
2017 was a great year for watch fanatics. We stocked some of the markets most innovative and limited watches. Seriously, we still get enquiries about them today.
The Seiko Presage (Cocktail), Astron (Novak Djokovic) and Prospex (Blue Lagoon) models looked and performed amazingly, they literally sold out as fast as they came in. Citizen was another brand that offered many limited models this year: Skyhawk, Navihawk, Royal Marines, Red Arrows.
Most watches came in special packaging with high quality accessories. Some models were numbered to show the limited quantity of that watch. This feature gave customers the chance to pick their own individual watch number from the option available.
We also had the Police's Justice League watch, Elliot Brown's Clipper Race watch, Bulova's Grammy watch, Edifice’s Toro Rosso watches and several more. If you missed out on a model you really wanted, dry your tears. We still currently stock plenty of limited models (click here to view) and there will be more to come in 2018, I promise.
WatchO Ad - featuring The One Liner, Mr Suited & Booted & Princess
Leading up to the Christmas period, we released our first official advert featuring our two bosses Pradip (aka The One Liner) and Joy (Mr Suited & Booted). The advert was shot in our store located in the Centre: MK – The Watch & Clock Shop. It also featured Sam (aka Princess), the only WatchO member to get through auditions process.
The WatchO brand family has expanded remarkably this year. We now stock some of top brands in the watch industry.
Here at WatchO, customers are our number 1 priority. We appreciate your loyalty to our company. As a thank you, we gave WatchO customers the chance to win free watches all year. It was our pleasure to gift customers with watches from Citizen, Bering, CLUSE, G-Shock, Ted Baker, HUGO BOSS Orange & Tommy Hilfiger.
In closing, 2017 was a great year! Lots of new watches and brands, and many promotions and giveaways. Once again, we’d like to say a big thank you to all our customers. Thank you for choosing WatchO, we really appreciate it!
