Amazon.com, Inc. said the 2008 holiday season was its best ever. However, the online retailer did not release sales figures.
The Seattle-based company said it received more than 6.3 million items ordered worldwide on its peak day, Dec. 15, a record-breaking 72.9 items per second.
Amazon listed its most popular jewelry and watch items for the seasons.
Jewelry top sellers included a 14k white gold Journey Curve pendant (1/2 cttw, H color, I1 clarity); the platinum, round, diamond 4-prong stud earrings (1 cttw, G-H color, VS2 clarity); and the sterling silver marcasite and garnet 18-inch glass heart pendant.
Top-selling watches included the Invicta men’s Pro Diver stainless-steel watch, Citizen’s Eco-Drive men’s Chronograph Canvas watch, and Movado’s Juro stainless-steel watch for men.
In addition, the company said it sold enough Casio G-Shock watches to outfit every Kanye West fan attending the 2008 Glow in the Dark Tour concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
