Mall favorite department store, Nordstrom, today announced that they have seen a noticeable increase of sales in the men's department, particularly for men's accessories--most significantly designer men's watches. Indeed, in the face of economic doom and gloom, men are returning to retail and increasingly buying accessories such as designer watches by the likes of Invicta, Swiss Legend, Movado and more. The current prediction is that demand for men's accessories including men's watches, cuff links and belts, is likely to reach a 20-year high in the first quarter of 2012.
Watches and accessories are popular purchases amongst men and women alike because they can lend a different flair to a simple look, such as a basic jeans and tee ensemble, or add a touch of individuality to standard corporate America attire. Today, many clothing designers are jumping on the bandwagon with a collection of designer watches, brand watches and luxury watches in an attempt to tap into this market. As a result, many designer brands have seen a major increase in demand for accessories including watches, sunglasses and jewelry. Traditionally the domain of women, the men's accessory market--particularly designer men's watches--is now experiencing a boom.
The Watchery carries a wide variety of discount designer watches that allows consumers to purchase at far below the department store retail price tag.
