Online retailer to donate 50% from special charity appeal watches.
WatchShop.com has announced a partnership with Tokyo-based watch giant Casio to help raise funds for the millions of people whose lives have been impacted by the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
WatchShop.com is offering to donate 50% of the proceeds from the sale of two specially packaged Casio sports models – one for men, one for women – towards aid and relief efforts in the region and in particular, to charities working actively to save and rebuild lives in Japan.
“After seeing the devastation across Japan and the continued trauma of this very brave nation, we at WatchShop wanted to help support this cause by selling one of the worlds’ most iconic Japanese brands, Casio”, said director of WatchShop.com Kishore Naib.
The two watches are sporty designs Casio chronographs.

Water resistant to 200m it retails at WatchShop.com for £30, with £15 being donated to charity.
The Ladies’ Casio Charity Appeal Sports Chronograph Watch is bright pink in colour, and costs £20, with £10 donated to charity. Similarly sporty in style, the ladies’ watch, with stop watch, alarm and countdown timer and is sleek enough to be work while running or taking part in sport.
Both of the watches will feature redesigned packaging, with a specially commissioned Japanese theme, and the knowledge they have helped a country to recover and rebuild in their greatest time of need.
