So we are almost through the first quarter of 2018 and some trends are emerging online as to what is looking to be popular this year and what isn’t. Traditionally men’s watches are something that will always do well and sell well online. Many new watch stores are popping up on the web but many have long shipping times of 2 weeks up to over 1 month which is too long a wait for many people. There is a new Irish site that emailed us over at www.menswatches.ie and they claim to keep their stock in Ireland so their shipping time is 1 – 3 days across Ireland which is quite impressive to say the least.
Quartz watches seem to be the best seller according to many watch stores online. Also the retro watch scene also seems to be making a come back which is interesting as this seems to happen every ten years or so across all fashion senses. Many of the online watch stores are selling watches at very affordable prices and some stores are even selling free watches and you just have to pay for the shipping. This is an interesting tactic and seems to be working out well for many retailers.
