January Blues?

04Feb14

January Blues

The January blues must have been on our mind when we found we picked up these three beauties! We wanted to add some colour to things at Watch Me Go, and just loved the purples and blues that these three wonderful vintage timepieces bring.

We’ve just popped these on the website so check them out today – there’s a Retro Dimetron Men’s Watch, an ASIS Retro Men’s Watch (now sold), and a Seiko pendant watch.

Anyway, away with the January blues, we’re in February now – here’s to a tip top 2014!

No sooner had we launched our Christmas offer, promoting a 10% discount on all our ladies vintage watches, than The Sunday Times Style magazine launched an amazing feature on jewellery, and announced that the ladies dress watch is back!
 
So don’t just take it from us – the ‘smaller, slimline timepiece’ is the number to be wearing this festive season – check out some of our favourite designs by clicking here.
 
And don’t forget to use promo code ‘CMAS13′ at the check-out to get your 10% discount this Christmas.
 
 

There have been some changes at Watch Me Go! The founders of the company, Julia and Gerald, have flown off to new adventures in Singapore, and we (Fraser and Rosie, hello!) are super excited to have taken over all watches vintage and stylish! We just wanted to pop onto this blog to say hello and introduce ourselves.

We’ve been out and about recently buying some exciting new vintage pieces! We know we shouldn’t have favourites, but we just love these two watches.
This is a very special Russian vintage watch with an automatic function and Russian lettering on the  face:

And this bright and bold Newmark vintage men’s watch – we love the retro-style numbering and red date function:

Have a look at other recent additions on our website, and do give us a shout if you have any questions about any of the new stock we’re posting, or if you really wish we stocked a particular type/style of timepiece!

We’ve been shopping. Christmas almost wiped us out of our vintage stock (no complaints there!) but we’ve since picked up lots of lovely little numbers from the watch fairs we visit around the UK. Many would make a lovely Valentine’s day present.

First up, this lovely patinated Royce vintage watch from Switzerland. A really elegant men’s watch from the 1930s, with art-deco influences on the numerals.

Like a Rolls Royce, only much, much cheaper

Or if you’re looking for a girl’s Valentine gift, how about this stunning marcasite watch? Again it has an art deco feel and it’s in excellent condition – you often lose a few of the little marcasite stones over the years, but this one’s perfect.

Someone's taken very good care of this beautiful watch.

HAPPY NEW YEAR watch lovers, design fanatics, fashionistas and gizmo geeks!

We are hoping for a truly great year in 2012 (after a slightly tempestuous 2011) and we’ve made three New Year’s resolutions to try and make that happen:

1) More blogging and, if we’re really virtuous, the odd tweet

2) To make it to every single watch fair, even if it is on a Sunday after a massive party and we’d rather stay in bed

3) To find at least two more unique watch lines to add to our selection

Added to that, we hope to continue with excellent customer service (that’s what you tell us!) and genuine TLC for each of our watches, particularly the vintage pieces.

As Quentin Tarantino so brilliantly captures in this scene from ‘Pulp Fiction’, a watch is something that really begs to be looked after. Because a watch is more than just an object that tells you the time – it’s a token of love, a cherished heirloom, a piece of history…

 

While we don’t go quite as far as storing watches like that, we can promise that we really do care about each one and we give them lots of love and attention. Each vintage watch is hand picked by us, then cleaned, sometimes repaired, often given a new strap or glass, and generally restored to its former glory. We’re sure you’ll want to care for one of them just as much once you’re the proud owner.
