Just Launched - SwissWinder.com - Magento eCommerce Website
May 10, 2011
SwissWinder.com features hundreds of automatic watch winders for sale at discount prices. The owners of the site came to me and wanted a professional site so they could sell their high end watch winders to owners of luxury watches with perpetual motion. Confused? So was I. Apparently, luxury watch manufacturers such as Rolex, make their watches with no batteries. The watch automatically recharges itself using the various movements and motions of the wearer's hand throughout the day.
However, if the watch wearer does not wear a watch for a period of time (because maybe he has several watches and only wears one per day), the watch will lose time. Enter the need for automatic watch winders. A watch winder is a small machine that you attach a perpetual motion watch to, and the machine turns (winds) the watch in order to keep it in time.
There is an entire market out there for such a luxury item and I was able to help the fine people of SwissWinder.com showcase their collection. In addition to the base Magento installation, I provided them with a custom Magento design, dynamic category menu (3 levels deep), Facebook and Twitter share buttons on product detail pages, improved checkout interface (via plugin) and a slick home page slideshow made with jQuery.
All in all, SwissWinder.com turned out great and the website owners are thrilled with the result. In fact, one of their targeted keywords was even ranking in the top 4 spots on Google within only 3 days of launching their domain! I've never seen anything rank so well so quickly.blog comments powered by Disqus
