Christmas is around the corner, which means Capetonians are thinking of affordable ways to spoil their loved ones. An elegant Fossil watch would make the perfect gift, but of course a designer piece would break the budget. Or would it?
If you thought ‘designer’ and ‘affordable’ didn’t go together then think again. Watch Republic Outlet and its counterpart, Watch Republic Service, are fairly new to the Green Point strip and are selling high-end luxury watches and accessories at incredible prices.
Brands stocked include; DKYNY and Diesel (both jewellery and watches), Adidas, Skagen, Michael Kors, Emporio Armani, Mondaine, Marc Jacobs and Karl Lagerfeld watches, Nixon (watches and headphones) and Fossil watches; as well as jewellery and genuine leather handbags and wallets.
Whether you are after a vintage piece or an aeronautic-inspired adventure watch, their wide range covers watches and premium accessories for all occasions; work, casual, sports, adventure or dress-wear.
All items are discounted between 30 and 70%, so you could take home a gorgeous classic Skagen watch, imported from Denmark, with a lifetime warrantee for as little as R800, or a pair of trendy Nixon headphones and watch for less than R1 500. Classic Fossil watches come is as low as R500 and all Fossil accessories are reduced by 50% as is the Diesel men’s jewellery and DKNY women’s accessories.
Also setting Watch Republic apart from other watch retailers is Watch Republic’s repair service. Located behind the outlets is the official Watch Republic workshop where a team of skilled watch-makers fix and service any watch that falls under the Watch Republic brand list.
To have a watch serviced you can pop in at the customer desk at Watch Republic Service or drop it off at any Watch Republic Store and it will be transported to and from the workshop at no extra charge. They offer a full range of repair services with varying prices, depending on the brand and if the problem can be fixed under warranty.
Besides their low prices, high quality and service guarantee, location is a reason to shop at Watch Republic Outlets. Based centrally in the trendy and relaxed Green Point area the shops are accessible and offer a relaxed and convenient shopping experience. “It’s a great area to be in – safe with a nice vibe,” said Nicolette, one of the friendly shop assistants.
I would also highly recommend surfing the Watch Republic online store to check out this season’s hottest fashion items. But do note their website doesn’t display their jewellery, accessories or major discount items so I would advise popping in and exploring the Green Point treasure chest before adding anything to the digital shopping cart.
