Q: An electrics, a watch and so on have a sale. Does this sound natural?
A: So - I think you are trying to say that there are some items on sale.

If so - its better to say something like this:
There will be electronic equipment, watches and other items on sale.
You need to specify the things that are on sale and the correct verb tense

If you are trying to use the words - “have a sale”
only People have a sale.
So you need to say something like this:
Mr.Smith is having a sale at his store. These items are on sale: electronic equipment, watches, and other items.

You can also say the name of a store and say it is having a sale.
Example: Apple Computers is having a sale. The sale includes iPads, iPhones and some watches.

Hope that helps.
