Trying to sell a product when the economy is grinding to a halt, many people either losing their jobs or on furlough... you could say in hindsight that it wasn't the smartest move. But we've survived! Not only survived but thrived. I think we hit our niche at the exact right time. A time when everyone doesn't have as much money as they did before but also a time when everyone needs that little indulgence to pick themselves up and make them themselves feel better. To be honest there wasn't a lot else to do bar shop online!! = The...

Chapter five - March update

Posted by Mat Pover on

Well, what can we say about March. Like the rest of the country we're feeling positive following the vaccination succeses and roadmap out of lockdown. This seems to have resulted in a turning point, we've been busier over the month of March than we have been over January and February together. Yay!

When he came to us he had been badly treated - hence his bumpy shell, but since he joined our family he has been treated like royalty!!!… A lovely house, correct lighting, baths twice a week, trips to the park for a run-around plus he loves coming camping with us! His best feature is the bow on his shell, just above his neck. His second best feature is his legs… he stretches them out and they’re just too adorable (see...

Chapter 3 - December update and 2020 wrap

Posted by Mat Pover on

December has been a difficult month for us here at L M Watch Company along with the majority of other companies! Our plan to do lots of Christmas markets went out the window and we had to re-think our marketing strategy. Thank you to everyone who has and continues to support us. The Christmas rush was successful and really hit it's peak towards the start of December (organised people!) which means we have lots of new stock coming live in the coming weeks. It's always exciting bringing new watches in. Personally, with illness and lockdown we've struggled to post every...
