Items Lost in Post

Occasionally items are lost in post once they leave us. Due to postal regulations, items are not classed as lost in post for a number of days. Before a claim can be raised for lost in post items a period of 15 days must have passed without delivery of your order. Once this period has elapsed we will be able to pursue your claim.

Faulty Items

In the unlikely event that your watch develops a fault within a short and reasonable period from receipt then please return it to us. If we find it to be faulty we shall exchange it for you, however if the fault is due to excessive wear or accidental damage you will not be eligible for an exchange. If your watch develops a fault within the period of the manufacturers guarantee then please read the section below on ‘Watches Under Guarantee’ for more information. Your statutory rights are not affected.

Watches Under Guarantee

All our watches (excluding pre-owned goods) are covered by the manufacturer’s guarantees, please consult your guarantee booklet for information on the length. You should store any guarantees and booklets safe so you do not lose them. We recommend that you read the guarantee as this informs you of what is and is not covered.
In general the manufacturer’s guarantee covers malfunctions that arise to defects in materials and workmanship. The manufacturer’s guarantee does not cover damage to the bracelet, strap, attachments or glass due to normal wear and tear, accidental damage and excessive wear and tear.

It also does not cover water damage to the watch if it has been used outside of the manufacturer’s recommended guidelines. It is worth noting that the guarantee is usually rendered void if unauthorised repairs have been carried out by a non-authorised dealer of the brand.

If your watch should develop a fault we recommend that you take it into an authorised dealer only. They will be able to confirm whether it is covered under the guarantee or not. If the watch does develop a fault which is covered by the guarantee than you can either return it direct to the manufacturer yourself, or send it to us and we will send it on your behalf.
