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 day on Instagram (haven't we all!) But don't worry, we're back on track for 2021 🙂

We've had some gorgeous second hand watches come through the workshop. Some memorable ones are the Roamer Rockshell XI, Seiko Kinetic, Rotary Havana, Casio G-Shock and the Vintage Hamilton 😍

Amended our logo/branding. As with any new company you go with what you think/get from market research but of course have to be flexible and make changes when you see it's not working. We changed our branding from navy with white writing to white with navy writing and removed the | between L and M. This has resulted in increased searches and traffic to our website.

Finishing the year off with a Give Away which is going to be announced on 1st Jan evening. We've been collecting the batteries we have changed in the last month.. Guess how many batteries are in the box to win!

Looking forward... of course we're looking to build on what we have already achieved in 2020 > Launching a new business during Covid and being profitable (phew!), using recyclable packaging to add to our sustainability of selling second hand watches, gaining over 1,300 followers on Instagram, over 370 followers on Facebook and over 250 followers on Twitter (we were social media novices), 5 star reviews on google etc

We're also going to be looking to expand into something new using watch mechanisms...

Some of our favourite google reviews:

Beautiful watch in perfect condition. Delivery was quick and it even came with the added gift of a cleaning cloth. Really happy with my purchase.

My wife’s Rotary watch needed a new strap. I bought an identical replacement watch (including strap) from LM Watch Company for less than the cost of a strap. The quality was so good my wife thought it was new. Service, communication and delivery speed were excellent. Highly recommended and would happily use them again

I recently dealt with this family-run watch business & it was an absolute pleasure; soooo helpful  & very prompt replying to my (no doubt) tedious requests! I would highly recommend them for their varied stock, passion for timepieces and overall commitment to customer service.10/10 and once again, thankyou.

Vintage watch purchased from yourselves is still very good, your service was first class, I have no problem recommending your company to anyone seeking a watch
