the WF&Co. boutique is a reflection of the expansion and direction that Watchfinder is moving in; the company is no longer just an online retailer, but a multi channel retailer, service centre and publisher. The Co. reflects a coming together of people and the creation of new areas to the business
Taken in context, this has to be seen as strong growth, and its further evidence of the increasing appeal of pre-owned premium watches
The watches we sell are a fantastic combination of luxury and investment. Our clients invest their money in beautiful pre-owned watches knowing that in a couple of years they will almost certainly have appreciated in value. There aren’t many things you can say that about in the boom times, let alone the current economic environment
We have some exciting initiatives planned for the next quarter and alongside the opening of a boutique store and international development, Watchfinder is in a great position to build on this growth through the rest of the year
When Watchfinder began, we recognised that building relationships was the key to growing the company. Deliver great service, go the extra mile, and you make it easier for customers to become loyal advocates who help drive that growth
I was delighted to see so many outstanding businesses and entrepreneurs last night. All of the entrants were of an extremely high standard and Kent has once again shown that it really is the place to do business
This is the fourth Kent Excellence in Business Awards and last night’s event raised the game, yet again, as far as awards schemes in this county are concerned. It truly was Kent’s business night of the year. My congratulations go to the finalists and worthy winners for achieving so much in a tough economic climate. This is a great county to do business in and, better placed than most to take advantage of the many opportunities ahead

We are very excited to be partnering with The Content Factory. This is a new, innovative lifestyle publication, full of great photography and information. We are extremely excited by the first issue and the high number of downloads it’s already received.
To generate this volume of sales growth in what can only be described as challenging trading conditions is pleasing, but it’s in line with our expectations. If you consider that our customer service rating has also improved to 92% it tells me we’re heading in the right direction
we’re trying to change the way people think about pre-owned watches and as buyers see how favourably our products compare to the brand new alternative, we expect the market to continue to grow
WF&Co set out their stall with aplomb - the sheer quality and variety of watches on display, as well as the enthusiasm and deep knowledge of the staff was truly impressive. The start of great things, I imagine.
Feedback on the new site and the magazine were fantastic. There was lots of interest in our members club which is due to hit the site in a couple of weeks and paves the way for our groundbreaking watch rental service.
It was all a bit quick, I was back home 6 hours later, the nurses were fantastic.
Everyone’s delighted for them, Chloe’s a beautiful little girl, and we wish them all the best for the future
The WF&Co (Watchfinder & Co) brand represents the diversification of the business over the last 2 years, as we are now so much more than just a retailer of pre-owned fine watches.
WF&Co retains a clear link to the heritage associated with Watchfinder, a brand synonymous with exceptional watches and peerless customer service. We’re all looking forward with anticipation to this, the first of many events.
