Derbyshire’s CW Sellors raised more than £1,700 for charity at its annual Christmas watch and jewellery showcase last weekend, this time boasting a Narnia theme.
The event at Chatsworth House showcased watch brands including Breitling, Oris, Tissot, Ball, U-boat and Longines, to name but a few, as well as a selection of fine jewellery. Experts were on hand to guide visitors through the established brands including limited edition and special collections. Competitions and activities were also part of the event.
Guests entered the show through a fur-lined wardrobe, and had the chance to try out a Tissot Superbike simulator, select a real diamond from a sea of cubic zirconias and sip cocktails.
Visitors helped to raise £927 for the NSPCC and £800 for the Derbyshire Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance through a selection of festive activities that also included jewellery cleaning.
A £1,000 shopping spree at CW Sellors was also up for grabs through its Kiss. Snap. Like. Competition, in which guests posted wearing £125,000 of Hans D. Kreiger diamond jewellery under Derbyshire’s largest mistletoe ball, with their photographs posted on Facebook in order to gain likes to win the prize.
