After You’ve Ordered
WT Author watches are built-to-order and dispatched in 10 working days by our workshop in Shropshire, UK. Each product is shipped with free worldwide shipping, tracked and insured via Royal Mail Special Delivery.
Don’t panic if you make any mistakes during your order, you can correct any input errors right up until you confirm payment. Once you’re happy everything is correct and you’ve submitted an order You’ll then receive an email headed ‘Your WT Author order receipt’ recognising receipt of your order. We will then send a further email headed ‘Order Confirmation’. This second email also lets you know how your products will be delivered to you. If we have to cancel all or part of your order for any reason, we will email you to let you know.
Sometimes we have to hold our hands up and admit we have made a mistake by unintentionally publishing inaccurate information on the site (e.g. the price, description or availability of a product you have ordered). In this instance, we may have to cancel your order at any time, even if you have received your Order Confirmation email, and you will receive a full refund of any charges already paid.
After purchasing your servicing option through our page, please return your watch to :

Please send us a brief message to state when the watch has been / is being sent making sure the product is insured and traceable, and suitably protected for transit. We cannot be held responsible for products that do not reach us, or reach us broken by the shipping solution.
When the watch service is completed we will ship it back to you for free.
We aim to return the watch back to you within 15 working days. Please note this time may increase at busy times of the year (leading up to Christmas).
If breakages occur to your item in our possession then it will be replaced by a like-for-like product.
Returns / Cancellations / Repairs & Delivery
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.
We will always endeavor 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 caseback 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 caseback number, or a similar watch with the equivalent value.
