Luxury pre-owned watch retailer Watchfinder has added to its growing collection of awards after scooping the E-commerce Business of the Year award.
The Kent-based online business, with a boutique in London’s Royal Exchange, took the award at the 2014 Digital Entrepreneur Awards in October. The awards seek to recognize organizations and technologies that deliver successful innovative and responsive web-based retail.
A team of nine judges, including Peter Salomon, director of the BBC, selected Watchfinder from among stiff competition to win the prestigious award.
Lloyd Amsdon, co-founder of Watchfinder, commented: “We are delighted to have this award – which champions Watchfinder’s digital core, recognising that our website is now one of the largest horological sites in the world with over 4.9million unique visits per annum.”
The latest award comes after Watchfinder were named as Retail Jewellers’ Watch Retailer of the Year earlier this year and watches from its two ‘complementary new’ brands, SevenFriday and Ressence, were awarded Highly Commended status in WatchPro’s Watches of the Year November issue. Watchfinder is also under consideration for The Sunday Times Fast Track ‘Ones to Watch’ programme.
