2017 Review

As we say goodbye to 2017 and welcome in a brand-new year, it is time to review how we spent our well-earned cash over the Christmas period.  A watch purchase is often seen as an investment purchase, so making the right decision is crucial and often well researched.

As most of the year’s sales are made in the last financial quarter, i.e October, November, December looking at Christmas buying trends can be very telling of the financial feeling for the entire year.

So, which watches did we choose and how much money did we spend on them?

Siam bangle watch from Michel Herbelin. Model number 17435/BT19 – RRP £399




For women, the Michel Herbelin best-seller was a very stylish bangle watch from the Siam collection.

Model number 17435/BT19 – RRP £399



With the effortless combination of high grade stainless steel and natural iridescent mother of pearl still showing design dominance, this watch is an easy choice for everyday wear.




What was our highest selling men’s watch?  The blue rubber strap edition of the Newport Connect collection. Model number 2017.GC/15CB – RRP £620.  https://www.michelherbelin.co.uk/sports-watches/newport-connect

Newport Connect from Michel Herbelin. Model number 2017.GC/15CB – RRP £620


This watch not only informs the user of sleep hours and gives phone and activity notifications, but it bridges the gap between old and new with a desirable analogue dial, practical rubber strap and attractive bold styling.

Whether the popularity of the best-selling watches from 2017 will be replicated in 2018 remains to be seen, but as the new year models are developed and released, new trends will undoubtedly unfurl.
