Garmin Watches now at S.T Hopper!

Posted on by Matt P.J Dip / Posted in Uncategorized, Website News | Comments Off on Garmin Watches now at S.T Hopper!

S T Hopper Ltd are proud to be the authorised stockist of the specialist Garmin professional, premium range of smartwatches. As a traditional jewellers this was quite a step for us, the thought of all this technology housed on your wrist was a little daunting for us all. However, a couple of us at the shop decided to take the plunge and purchase a model each (yes watches are our weakness!) they have proved to be much more straightforward and user friendly than we had feared. We can’t claim that we are all now budding Olympic athletes, but we are certainly getting to grips simply through playing around with the training programme apps, heart rates and of course the music storage facility present on many of the models. The more adventurous of us have GPS models that can map our cycle, run or hike and accurately pin point our position on the built in mapping feature. At a more sedate level we are finding it great to be able to keep up with Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Instagram tagging and messages, texts and of course emails, all sent directly to the watch. One feature is for the watch to vibrate on your wrist when you do get a notification if you prefer to receive messages discreetly.

Receive messages and emails as well as pay for items using your Garmin watch!

  One of the most pleasing aspects is that most of the watches can have the face of the watch customised. With a couple of clicks or touches of the screen you can change the watch from an analogue dial to a digital dial. Once you get bored with the preset dials you can go to the Garmin app store and download additional faces! The Garmin Connect Store has so many extra apps to choose from, from Spotify to games there are literally hundreds of apps to choose from.

Hundreds of apps to choose from including Spotify

It seems the possibilities are endless, particularly with regular Garmin updates made possible via the Garmin website or better still thanks to the Bluetooth and WiFi technology built in to the watches you’ll always be up to date and a step ahead.

  We’ve noticed the watches function with normal wear for approximately two weeks before they need a quick recharge. On average to fully charge our watches it takes no more than an hour! Very impressive.

So the overall verdict from Team Hopper is that you don’t have to be computer technician to be able to work these watches, in fact they are so easy to use, so discreet in receiving messages and emails, so useful in storing up to 500 songs onto the watch, so clever in keeping your everyday steps, stair climbing count and heart rate monitor, you’ll be wondering why you didn’t take the plunge earlier, just like we thought! you won’t regret it, it’s been a worthy addition to our watch collection!

#ThrowbackThursday The Hoppers Clocks

#ThrowbackThursday

Let’s take another trip down Memory Lane……

 

Today on our Facebook and Twitter pages we have another look down memory lane.

 

Today we thought we’d show you a few of the many style of clocks we have sold over the years! In the Hoppers Vault we have a large 1950’s bakelite wall clock, a high quality Walnut mantle clock from the 1970’s, a very unusual hanging rope clock also from the 1970’s and our most famous clock shown here taken in the 1950’s hung proudly over our shop in Strait Bargate. The last 25 years of its life had been running without any weatherproof casing! This is because it was damaged and cracked during the second world war and resulted in the glass facing falling off!

Pre-Owned Jewellery

Posted on by Matt P.J Dip / Posted in Uncategorized, Website News | Comments Off on Pre-Owned Jewellery

This week we wanted to share our ‘arty’ picture of our Boston Stump silver charm shown here in the foreground. We found this deep in the Hoppers vaults! We had them made specially in back in the 1970’s in solid gold and solid silver. Some of you may even have one! 😮😍 Keep an eye on our pre-owned jewellery section, they sometimes appear there in between our other tempting treasures! ⛪️ we have refurbished pieces added weekly to our pre-owned window so keep browsing!

The picture in the background takes pride of place in the office upstairs and even after over 20 years of working at the shop I still find it stunning. It is a huge picture of St Botolph’s church also known locally of course as the Boston Stump. In the early 1970’s Gerry Hopper had the Hoppers office relocated upstairs and this picture caught his eye when visiting his friend Derek Addy, a local photographer from ‘Addys of Boston’ in Wide Bargate. Gerry fell in love with the picture and purchased it there and then, perfect for the new office. It has lived at Hoppers ever since and we thought such a ‘gem’ needs to be enjoyed by all. Full article on the picture can be found HERE

#ThrowbackThursday Our Oldest Pictures

#ThrowbackThursday

Let’s take another trip down Memory Lane……

 

Today on our Facebook and Twitter pages we have another look down memory lane.

For all you Hopper Shoppers who like old, vintage pictures we have just the thing for you! This week we have two of our oldest pictures to show you. These have been safely stored away in the Hoppers Vault for all these years. The first picture shows a gentleman looking very dapper in his suit complete with pocket watch. This is Great Grandfather Hopper, Mr Arthur Thompson Hopper.

Mr A.T Hopper

 

The second picture shows Arthur Hopper outside his shop with two of his children. These two children were brother and sister to Stanley Thompson Hopper who’s absent from the photo who later established ‘S.T Hopper jewellers’ in Boston, Lincolnshire in 1926. You may have noticed that there is a pattern emerging and that is the jewellery and watch trade runs through the veins of the Hopper family and we are now the 4th generation family jeweller. Arthur Hopper’s jewellers shop as shown in the picture was located at 23 Aire Street, Goole, Yorkshire, opposite the quayside (If you look closely enough in the picture you can even see the reflection of a fishing boat!) This was taken circa 1900 making this the oldest Hoppers Jewellers photo we have!
