We’ve put the work in, to find and share the best of the watch brands in this blog. Read on to see.
We’ve picked a selection of our luxury watches, all to be included in our Black Friday sale. The first is an Omega, the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games.

We can’t forget Breitling. The watch of land, sea and sky. The wings on the logo represent how the brand shaped the aviation industry, the anchor is a tell of its work at sea and the B in the middle stands for Black Friday… just kidding, it’s for Breitling and you’ll find plenty of models available in our sale next week!
It's tought to mention Breitling without eluding to the iconic Navitimer, a watch with over 65 years worth of history. Below is a 2017 version which perfectly showcase Breitlings famous features.

For those of you hitting the shops for the promotions, we’ve decided to share our top-secret rules to make sure you have the greatest chance of getting the best black Friday deals:
1. Waiting for the shutters to open is serious business. You need to set up camp. Brightly coloured birds, like peacocks, have electric colour feathers to scare off predators. This is what you need to channel here to keep the shopper competition at bay. A vibrant tent is all you need to let them know you mean business.
2. Supplies. You’ll need to keep your eyes on the doors constantly and be alert to local noise. You’ll need food and drinks to support this, no tricky meals, just constant snacking. Be vigilant as you eat, we find it helps to chew in sync with your pulse for increased focus.
3. There are times when you might need to leave your camp. An emergency cut out is the answer. Invest in a 6ft cut out of yourself folding your arms, so when leaving camp momentarily you can rely on your cardboard self to secure your spot. It might be worth keeping this up at all times, so the competition thinks you have scouts on the perimeter.
Although we joke about all this, there are wild horror stories out there about Black Friday. We always have tea on hand in our stores, so if you need some recovery time pop in and let us make you a cuppa -we might even throw in a chocolate digestive!
Alternatively, avoid the waiting in line altogether. All our watches can be ordered to view in store, so you can get the VIP treatment and sit back whilst we send your favourite watch to your local store. If we don’t have what you are looking for, please let us know, we will search high and low to find it.
As always, we love to be involved so please share your stories with us! Tag us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. It’s well worth signing up to our newsletter so you are the first to know when the promotion starts.
