Watch shops and jewellers which are not affected by the Royal Mail Postal Strike

Published: October 23rd, 2009


Now that Royal Mail union workers are continuing their strikes, it is critical to know where to buy online in order to not be affected. Fortunately many watch shops and jewellers are taking action, and are putting in place contingency measures to ensure you promptly get your shopping.

We have researched and listed boutiques which can guarantee delivery through either Royal Mail special delivery (Un-affected during the strike) courier or private postal companies:

Ernest Jones


Ernest Jones offer standard delivery which is not recommended at the moment – Instead make sure you opt for DHL next day courier for only £6!

Delivery will be made by an insured courier service and will reach you within three to five working days – Your purchases at Goldsmiths will not be affected by Royal Mail strikes.

Watches Shop


The Watches Shop offer different delivery options, and in order to guarantee your order you must pick the next day delivery provided by City Link Couriers which you can select at checkout. Provided you place your order before 14:00pm (GMT), they will dispatch your order the same day for next working day delivery (pending payment acceptance) for £5.99.
