Good news! Our doors are open once more! We are so excited to welcome you all back into store. We hope you’ve kept well during this last (and hopefully final) lock-down.

We are open Monday to Saturday 10am to 5pm, with all services resumed according to current Covid-19 guidelines, including ear piercing!

We’ve already had an influx of watch batteries which was to be expected! We’ve also had a number of special occasions that occurred in lock-down celebrated with some beautiful purchases today. Everyone is happy to be back out and about and for things to be moving forward!

If you are unsure about coming in to store or have any queries, please don’t hesitate to give us a call and we will do our best to help you.

We look forward to seeing you!

In accordance with Tier 4 guidelines, the shop is closed. But we will be open for curb-side collection from 10am till 1pm until Christmas Day.

Please call on 01707 322492 and we will do our best to identify your needs over the phone and find the gift you’re looking for. We will have your item ready for collection within minutes.

We have a collection and pay point outside the front of our shop to safely hand over your purchase. If our limited opening hours aren’t convenient for you, please do call to arrange an appointment and we will do our best to accommodate you. It is, after all and believe it or not, Christmas!

To all our customers who have repairs and alterations with us, we are working hard to get as much done as possible before the 25th, and we will be in touch over the course of today and tomorrow to keep you informed. We are so sad to lose these last 5 days of trading with you. The week leading up to Christmas is our favourite at Godshaws. It’s always full of magic, surprises, smiles and Christmas spirit. We love seeing you find the perfect gift for your loved ones, hearing about your Christmas plans, helping with surprises and unforgettable moments.

But losing these days with our customers doesn’t compare to the anguish many will be feeling about not being able to see their loved ones as we hoped we would be able to. From all of us at Godshaws, we sincerely hope that you find some light and magic on the day, wherever you are. Let’s all pick up the phone, stay in touch, share hopes and dreams for next year, and know that the sacrifices we’ve made this year and this Christmas are for the benefit of all and that we are all in this together.

Reduced hours due to Coronavirus

We are pleased to announce we are open for business! We eagerly anticipate an influx of watches in dire need of batteries after their time spent in lock-down, and of course to greet our lovely customers and see how you are.

We have social distanced markers in place, protective screens at 3 customer check points, hand sanitiser available at each point, and staff are supplied with PPE. If you have any concerns or queries over visiting the store, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 01707 322492 and we’ll be happy to answer any questions.



Apart from an altered layout, 3 customer limit and a lot of protective gear… it’s business as usual! We’re at the ready to assist you in all watch, jewellery and purchasing requirements after 2 months in isolation. All services are up and running, with the exception of ear piercing which we are unable to offer in order to retain a 2 metre distance.

We look forward to welcoming you…. from a distance!
