Thread: Breitling Outlet at Bicester Village

  1. #1

    Breitling Outlet at Bicester Village

    Having dropped the Etype off on Sunday morn, decided to pop to Bicester visit as two bus stops away from the show.

    Id heard they had a new Breitling store - indeed they have - I really liked it - far better than the Tag shop - and some good discounts to be had.

    Seemed most models weren't on bracelets - and was only in there for 5-10mins, but definitely worth a look.

    Its on the corner down by the Timberland store - and the security guard was a lovely guy too.

    There were some Heritage there - I'd say stock will change fairly fast

    I was there the day after they opened and the Superocean Heritage was available. A very nice lady who was part of the team in the shop told me that most models will be coming through and all would be 30% of retail.

    I tend to stop off there for a leg stretch when coming home from working in London, so could be an expensive rest in future :)

    Its all decent stuff - very upmarket too - not a jumble sale of watches - the guy was altering a bracelet at the desk when I went in - so left him to concentrate

    Thanks for the heads up. Iíll have to make the pilgrimage to Bicester when I next visit my parents.

    Bicester was historically an expensive place for me to visit without checking watch shops 😂😂 I always thought the tag boutique was poor and you could get as good discounts on the high street.

    Am I the only one that thinks this devalues a brand? Itís one thing shelling at a discount but having an outlet store where every watch is discounted is something else entirely.

    I live in the North East , near the Barbour factory shop , it gets mobbed with folk buying the heavily discounted stock end of line / sample / slight seconds , but also has a retail shop part to it where you buy the latest lines at full retail .

    Plenty of retailers of Barbour in the area selling at rrp , doesn’t seem to effect them either.

    There’s multiple channels of distribution, a factory outlet is one of them , it’ll hardly cause Breitling any devaluation of the brand.

    If they sell at retail via the AD network theyíre probably selling stock at 50-60% of rrp. This way they get 70% direct to the customer.

    They will probably also sell returned stock. Sometimes with marks on the boxes/strap that they canít sell through normal channels.

    Nearly every top end brand has an outlet. I canít see a problem with the model

    That would be something. They could open an outlet that sells at 30% over retail 😂

    There is also a Swatch group outlet, selling the likes of Longines, Certina, Union, Hamilton etc. Sadly no Omega.
