Christopher Ward have on offer a range of ladies watches with 50% their RRP. Three models are available, Coral, Alex and Amelia.

Coral

The high-tech ceramic of the W60s bezel was developed originally for the heat shield of the Space Shuttle, so light, hard and heat resistant is this zirconium-oxide based material. And yet it is for its beauty as much as its extraordinary resilience that the watch industry has, in more recent times, adopted ceramic as a material for cases and bracelets.

Amelia

This stylish take on our widely acclaimed C11 MSL aviation watch loses nothing other than size when compared to its mens collection bigger brother. Engineering perfection, the calling card of the C11, is evident in every component of the W11 Amelia.

Golana Advanced AD400 Automatic Silver or Black – RRP £620, Now £248 with code

We have been featuring the Golana Advanced Pro Ad200-2 for a while now and it is one of our most viewed watches.  We have had some great feedback about the Ad200 (except the long lead times), which is the big brother to the Golana Ad400 watch featured today.

The Golana Advanced AD400-1 (with the black dial) and AD400-2 (white dial) has been offered for the £310 mark for some time on Amazon now with good stock availability.  Using the discount code below, you can save another 20% and pay just £248, saving you 60% off the RRP in total.  It just falls just outside our 61-80% category but fits nicely under the £250 mark.


This watch would probably suit the daily wearer better than the Ad200.  It’s not so heavy, has a leather strap, and is a watch for all occasions, whether you’re at home, work or out and about.  What makes this one special is its use of the Swiss made ETA 2824 automatic movement.  This movement features in many branded watches which is proved accurate and reliable.  Watches using this movement tend to be priced between £600 and £1,000 so the RRP of £620 is not a figure plucked out of thin air.  The sweeping second hand and glass window showing the movement will continue to impress.

RRP is £620 however Amazon have been offering this watch half price for £310.  If you register for the ‘Amazon Fashion Newsletter’ (see below link) you will receive a 20% discount code to apply at checkout, reducing the price to just £248.
