DISCOVER FIRST CLASS WATCHES
FROM A SMALL MARKET TOWN JEWELLERY SHOP TO GLOBAL WATCH RETAILER
Launched in 2005 by high street jewellers James Moore & Co, First Class Watches is a family owned and operated business who have used the power of internet retail to reach customers from all corners of the globe. More than ten years on, they are one of the UK's largest independent watch retailers with hundreds of thousands of happy customers. Using their responsive website, customers can browse a stock of over 5000 watches from more than 60 designer watch brands at their leisure on smartphones, tablets and desktops. A cool concept feature on their website includes self-photographed 360-degree imagery and a "make us an offer" facility for those who like to haggle. They also offer price matching and free watch adjustment to allow customers to make informed and quick purchases while receiving the same service and warranty they would expect from a high-street store.
The online watch retailer has already been featured in publications such as GQ, Stuff, Gardens Illustrated and Tatler. They have industry leading reviews on websites such as Trustpilot, ResellerRatings and Google resulting in them recently achieving Google Certified Shop status. This puts their customer service right at the top of the watch industry, surpassing many of the big-name highstreet jewellers. They were just a small market town jewellery shop, that have now built one of the biggest brand name watch sites in the world. Now having achieved this, they’re still working hard to grow their business and improve the purchase experience using exciting new technology.
So, when we got the chance to work with First Class Watches for this feature we had a good browse around their website in search for the perfect on-trend but timeless watch under £1000. We believe the timepiece price of £700-£1000 will give you a world-renowned Swiss watchmaker name that will get you recognised among watch connoisseurs worldwide, but without the need to remortgage your house.
