    Seiko Captain Willard SPB153J1- Are Discounts Achievable?

    I'm really liking the Seiko SPB153J1, the "Captain Willard", but I also like a bargain. Is it realistic to think it might be possible to get a discount on one?
    If so, what would be a realistic figure to aim for?
    Many thanks,

    Absolutely.

    Discount codes are readily available for 15% to use online with the likes of Goldsmiths so this is a minimum. I ordered the blue limited edition spb183 Willard on release and managed to get a 20% discount plus free watch roll. Was available in store but I ordered online to get a further 3% via topcashback.

    Goldsmiths are still doing the key worker/ front line discount which is worth a look [20%].

    When i checked a couple of weeks ago the WATCH20 code was working on the SPB line at goldsmiths - it seems to come and go so might be worth a try

    Thanks everyone. I need to be more observant (not absorbent as I nearly wrote).

    Thanks for all the tips, I went onto Goldsmiths and got a green Willard at 20% discount plus a buckshee watch roll & free next day delivery.
    Goldsmiths being part of WoS, it'll be good for my purchase history too (I hope).

    I used the code WATCH20 online & it was accepted. It does look like the discount means that the buckshee watch roll won't be making an appearance though...

    Send them an email Speedy.

    My order came without the watch roll initially. They acknowledged the basket doesnít update correctly when applying the code. They dispatched a roll on a separate order and it came the following day. Certainly worth a follow up if it is omitted.

    Are Hilliers and Jura affiliated? There are similarities on pricing, discounts and site appearance.

    It came today but no roll. I emailed them & the response said the freebies were reserved for those paying full price. I replied that the website confirmed that the roll was part of the order & that as a frequent customer of the WoS group I was disappointed not to have received it.
    Hopefully they will reconsider.
    If not, it's not the end of the world, I'd rather have the money off than the freebie.

    So what they are saying is, itís not a free watch roll. If you buy their full price watch, the price also includes the cost of a watch roll that you may or may not want. Iíd be willing to bet that 100% of people buying would rather have the cheaper watch and no roll!

    Yep, my thoughts exactly. I could use the roll but I'd much prefer the 20% discount.

    How much did you pay for the Willard?

    Assuming you got a discount on the £1000 advertised price then technically you do not qualify for a free watch roll. Advertising states a free watch roll with all purchases over £1000.

    I got 20%, so £800. Technically you are correct but the website includes the roll when confirming the order.
    As others have said, the discount is preferable to the gizzit.
