If for whatever reason you change your mind and would like to return your order after delivery, we’re happy to refund or exchange your purchase as long as it’s unopened and in its original packaging.
This option is available for 14 days after delivery.
You may also use the cancellation form template found below, but it is not obligatory.
We may make a deduction from the refund for any loss in value of the goods if the loss is a result of any unnecessary handling by you.
As a small company, we strive to provide our customers with the best possible products and services, while also ensuring the sustainability of our operations.
One aspect of our return policy that we would like to clarify is the requirement for customers to cover the cost of postage when returning goods.
We understand that this may seem unconventional compared to some larger companies that offer free return shipping.
However, we wanted to shed light on the reasoning behind this decision.
As a small company, we carefully consider every aspect of our business to ensure we can offer high-quality products at affordable prices.
Our pricing structure is designed to be fair and competitive, taking into account factors such as manufacturing costs, overhead expenses, and customer service.
By allocating the cost of return postage to the customer, we are able to keep our prices as low as possible, making our products accessible to a wider range of customers.
Moreover, we believe in sustainability and reducing our environmental impact.
By asking customers to bear the cost of return postage, we hope to encourage thoughtful decision-making and discourage unnecessary returns.
This helps us minimise waste, lower carbon emissions associated with return transportation and ultimately contribute to a more sustainable future.
We will always endeavour to try and repair your watch to the same specification as when it was bought.
However, due to the limited numbers of each watch and their components, it is not always possible to replace exact parts.
We will therefore repair or replace parts as close as we can to the original watch.
If a brand new watch is damaged or lost in transit, we will aim to replace it with the same watch, but with a new case back number.
If a serviced or repaired watch is damaged or lost in transit, we will aim to replace it with the same watch, but with a new case back number, or a similar watch with the equivalent value.
