MOTHER'S DAY SPECIAL: A beautiful, trendy watch you’d be willing to pay a ton for, but won’t have to. This deal of the day is $689 (65% off the $1995 retail price). Sale ends at midnight tonight (EST).
I once read about this experiment that this Harvard Business teacher conducted in one of his beginning business classes (and by “read,” I mean someone who actually reads told me about it during lunch today). He held up a twenty-dollar bill and announced to the class that he would auction it off. The only rule: both the first and second place bidder would have to pay, but only the winner would get the money.
Now you’d think a bunch of smart business students would never dare bid more than $20 for a $20. But as it so happens, every time the professor did the experiment, the students always paid MORE than twenty, sometimes much more (the record bid: $204). How could that happen? In a nut shell, the second place bidder was always trying to outbid the winner so he/she wouldn’t lose money for nothing. They weren’t bidding to win, they were bidding not to lose.*
No matter how you explain it, paying more than twenty for a twenty is insane. But lets face it; people are generally out of their minds and pay way more for things than they should.
Allow us at JomaDeals to offer a little sanity with today’s deal of the day, this Gucci 6800 Series Ladies Bangle watch. It’s a chic, feminine watch that fits more like jewelry than an actual wristwatch. It’s a high end, name brand piece with diamonds set in the case, extremely scratch resistant sapphire crystal, and a brilliant silver tone hardware that makes this beauty shine.
And the cost? 65% BELOW retail. That’s right, get this beauty for a lot less than what it’s actually worth.
It just goes to show that even if you’re not a brilliant business student, you can still make a brilliant deal.

An iconic Italian fashion trendsetter, the House of Gucci -- better known just as Gucci -- is renowned for its tradition of luxury and constant quest and attention for style and quality. It was founded in 1921 by Guccio Gucci when he opened a leather goods company and small luggage store in his home of Florence, Italy. Within a few years, the Gucci label attracted a sophisticated international clientele who sought out its equestrian-inspired collection of bags, trunks, gloves, shoes, and belts.
Gucci’s luxury goods used by the likes of Hollywood actress Grace Kelly, and Jackie Kennedy, the wife of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. Because of its iconic status, Gucci is frequently mentioned in popular culture. Gucci has also been mentioned in the movies including Pretty Woman, Hannibal, The Wedding Planner, The Devil Wears Prada, and Epic Movie. To desire the perfect luxury item, a Gucci will work just fine.
Artistically combining the elegance of Italian design with the precision of Swiss horological craftsmanship, every Gucci timepiece represents watchmaking at its finest. From inception to finish piece, Gucci demands a commitment of the highest standards, attention to detail and exacting quality control. Today's Gucci watches are made of the most durable materials, while design is focused on modernity-tweaking classic watch styles with contemporary lines and flourishes in order to make a mark of this time for years to come.
