"Upper End" of guidance & "Finishes the year Strongly & entered the New Year with real momentum." UK C.70% of business & guidance forecasted 6 weeks lockdown. Lockdown ended up at 16 weeks, so hitting "Top End" was pretty good. Nice to see a Company issuing detailed guidance for 2022. Class Act imo.

WOSG mentioned in weekend FT yesterday. The piece highlighted the fact that the company has benefitted from lockdown. Those bored at home have bought watches using personalised one-to-one online video showings. The discretionary spending of the rich - with nowhere else to go during lockdown - has found an outlet at Watches of Switzerland. Niche stock with little competition.

Falling back a little when everything was going like err clockwork. Any move to 500p and this moves sweepingly in both directions and I am a buyer again.

It's online that has been such a triumph during lockdown. This company has done very well selling watches with it's virtual showings. Simple

My nap for 2021 this stock. Just off conference call. Nice simple, well run business. Free cashflow generation struck me as particularly impressive. ROCE going up - now 17% up from 15% last year. Olympics and Bond movie set to be helpful. Plus of course more normal post-COVID trading conditions. So lots to look forward to. Fun fact gleaned from call.. The price of luxury watches has increased by 3% per annum on average for last 20 years.

I think this is an excellent play for where money will be spent by those who've saved a lot of during lockdown. Invested myself here today.

Am tempted to hyperbolize but really very decent results today. COVID proof business clearly. I have done something I never do I have bought on results day. The thing I really like about this business is that buying watches is addictive - They can't just buy one watch and stop. They have to have more and better watches. Many new addictions to watch buying will have started during this pandemic; Men (its mostly men isn't it) bored at home with all that furlough money and nothing to spend it on. hmmm ... maybe I should buy a rolex ..

Anyone with time on their hands could do worse than looking into this. Especially if it dips under 500p. You would have to be fast then before bargain hunters clock the fall.

Maybe a bit too cynical, but LVMH looking for any excuse not to own Tiffany should raise the question why we should own WOSG.

Hi Mach, First of all: coming back to my previous comment, I now presume that indeed the consensus estimates were post IFRS16 (whereas the company guides pre IFRS16), so I stand corrected and it seems that there is indeed an implicit upgrade to FY21 ebitda consensus of around +5%. And I do certainly agree with you with the business being adaptable to some extent to zoom meetings. In fact the company is even talking about experimenting with AR so that customers can remotely see how the watch will look like on their wrists. Additionally, even inside the stores, it is a business that works well with social distancing: low footfall and good conversion. I would even add another positive, which is the fact that luxury watches work well as storage of value, akin to the recent rally of the price of gold. It is difficult to evaluate if those factors are enough to offset the disappearance of the foreign tourist. Yes, their FY21 guidance is above consensus, but longer term comments were more sobering. But clearly I agree with you in that, at least on relative terms, they have the conditions to do much better than the average listed retailer.

Interesting suppositions there Throm and you may be proved right. Certainly the jump today may tempt profit takers tomorrow. What retail company incidentally that is not tech based or domestic household improvement centred would you expect to match 2019 sales in this Covid environment? I think actually as many retail outlets are just showrooms these days that online is where it is at anyway and WOSG is growing strongly. Cov19 has also increased disposible income as people have less and often no transport costs and no impulse or other buys of sandwiches and other lunches. I think WOSG watches would look particularly good on Zoom or MS Teams as I do an accidental stretch while speaking to inadvertently display my nice watch. May be a dip tomorrow but the company expects to be at the top end of guidance and that is no mean feat when you consider current disruption. Cov19 appears to be unwinding for now so perhaps we just have to adjust our watches to the new normal.

The tone of the presentation is upbeat. The company managed to offset the weakness of tourist demand with pent-up demand from the domestic waiting list and a good e-commerce presence. But on the other hand margins in the guidance are flat (most of the sales guidance beat probably comes from the pass-through of higher ASP?) and guided ebitda at the mid-point is actually below consensus (or is consensus post IFRS-16 numbers?). And the company says that it should not hit calendar 2019 sales before calendar 2022, which implicitly represents a material downgrade to consensus 2021 estimates. This probably means that offsetting the weak tourism demand will be increasingly difficult going forward. Additionally, the company does not provide lfl numbers, even when prompted on the Q&A, which is very peculiar, especially as they did an acquisition recently. Overall, I would say it was reassuring, but the performance today looks way overdone.

Great update and the market is now playing catch up. This hit 400p at one stage and though times are changed I am hopeful that the company can see higher levels than even today's jump as it has outperformed Covid and took appropriate actions to deal with the current challenges.

RFX today bodes well. Statement includes "Sales of premium watch brands such as Rolex and Breitling and our unique second-hand jewellery pieces also achieved strong growth." I think we should expect a secondary placing in WOSG at some point this year, which will suppress the price.
