The Watch

Watches of Switzerland is a Jewellery and Watch retailer that started in 1924 in Ludgate Hill here in London, it has gone on to be one of the largest retailers of Watches in the UK. This watch was made for the company in the 1970s, a very common practice by retailers as they believed their own branded watches could sell as well as their own branded jewellery, this wasn't quite the case with most companies stopping this after a few years of doing it. This Watches of Switzerland watch I have to offer you here is a very unusual one as the design is very out there, they certainly didn't play it safe and that is what drew me to this watch! The vibrant gold plating contrasting against the subtle grey tone of the dial, simple WoS logo at 12 o'clock and a date, nothing more, very classic! Paired on an integrated mesh bracelet, it does stand out on the wrist and look awesome!

Points of Mention

This watch is sold as watch only and comes with no box or paperwork. The watch is original and shows signs of age, gold plating has held up very well over the years but is showing signs of discolouration in a few areas. There is no service history with the watch, though it is running well, service would be recommended if worn daily.

Personal Note

Not for the faint-hearted this watch, but if you are brave enough to wear it you will have a ton of fun! Even better if you work at or know someone who works at Watches of Switzerland, this could be an incredible gift and someone that will certainly wow the office or store!
