Should you be looking to pick up a gift, or fancy a new watch for yourself this November, we can help.

When is Black Friday 2021?
This year’s Black Friday will be on November 26 – the day after the American holiday Thanksgiving.
Lots of retailers and brands will have sales live on the day, but for the best Black Friday watch deals, it’s best to start looking a week or two beforehand.
Some sales start well ahead of the day itself, but it’s also sensible to be aware of prices before price cuts so you can spot the best deals quickly.
When is Cyber Monday 2021?
Cyber Monday falls on November 29 this year, just three days after Black Friday.
Watch deals could still be part of the sales during Cyber weekend and Cyber Monday, as more and more companies extend their sales beyond Black Friday itself.
Fashion brands and jewellery retailers were active during Cyber Monday last year, so it’s worth keeping an eye out for offers if you’ve not found something you like.
Should I wait until Black Friday to buy a new watch?
The simple answer is: yes!
If you’re in the market for a new watch right now, there’s really not long to go until Black Friday so it’s definitely worth holding out to find the best deal.
With the majority, if not all of the biggest watch retailers holding Black Friday events, there’s a strong chance you’ll be able to make a saving on a brand new watch this November, so we’d recommend being savvy with your money and waiting to make a purchase.
You’ll potentially end up with a far better watch in the sale for the same amount as full-price watches right now too, so it’s a no-brainer to wait until Black Friday.
What to expect from watch retailers in the Black Friday 2021 sales
Last year, watch retailers slashed their prices of designer watches and big-name brands by hundreds of pounds for Black Friday. Hopefully, we’ll see similar amazing discounts in 2021.
Reductions in 2020 went as high as 50 per cent, with big savings on high-end models, as well as lowest-ever prices for classic and retro styles.
We don’t know for sure what’s on offer yet, but we’ll update you here as soon as we can, so do check back!
And remember: as lots of retailers offer similar styles and models, compare prices this November to ensure you get the best deal.
