Watchonista’s Guide To The Best Horological Deals Of Black Friday
Black Friday watch deals for the couch potato, a selection of our favorite online offers.
It’s here! After looming on the calendar for weeks, the dreaded Black Friday is upon us. A day that generates its own unique kind of pressure, a “hurry-up and wait” scenario that may not feel so appealing at 5 AM after a turkey feast.
We’re expected to rush out, beat the crowds, join the multitude of treasure hunters chomping at the bit to find the best deal in town, from shovels to suits. After an hour of circling the parking lots and passive aggressive moves against other drivers, most of us without herculean patience are ready to go home for a turkey sandwich and a nap, guilty of not having snagged the best deal on a coveted gift for our loved ones.
And while you’re shopping for the people on your holiday list, why not also get a little treat for yourself from the comfort of your own home? Sit back, relax with a cup of coffee and a turkey sandwich, and reward yourself.

This discount, coupled with free shipping on all watch purchases, make it a no-brainer.
