We send watches worldwide. We will pack your watch carefully
with plenty of padding material, so unless the package is seriously
mishandled in transit, you will receive your purchase in perfect
condition. We will normally despatch the goods to you no later than
three working days after receiving a cleared payment. If for
reasons beyond our control this is not possible, we will inform you by
email and provide you with the expected date for despatch of your
All packages with a UK address are delivered by Royal Mail Special
Delivery, which guarantees next working day delivery and provides
insurance for the value of the purchase up to £2500.
Packages sent to overseas addresses will be despatched by either Royal
Mail International Signed For, with insurance up to £500, or by
private courier service (normally DHL), with insurance up to
£1000. However we will, at your request, send a watch costing
more than £500 by Royal Mail but you must pay by bank transfer,
NOT Paypal. Please note that by choosing Royal
Mail, you will be agreeing that your compensation for loss or damage in
transit is limited to £500. Due to problems with delivery to
Italian addresses we will only send goods using a courier service if you
pay using Paypal.
If you are an overseas buyer, please be aware that some countries
impose duties and taxes on goods imported from the United Kingdom.
We understand that residents from European Union (EU) countries do not
charge import duties on goods sent with the EU but we recommend that make
your own checks before purchasing from us. It is your sole
responsibility, not that of the seller, to pay any and all duties or
taxes imposed by your country.
We warrant that the goods you receive will not vary significantly from
the written details and photographs shown on our website. We provide a
comprehensive written description and also provide several clear
photographs, using a macro lens which displays our watches highly
magnified and from several different angles. You will see detail
not visible to the naked eye and will therefore inevitably find that when
you receive your watch it will look even better than in our
If the watch has been serviced by ourselves, and we will always state if
this is so in the watch description, we will warrant the watch for three
months after purchase against mechanical failure. The warranty excludes
accidental or deliberate damage. As you are buying a vintage watch
which will be many years old, we do not warrant that any of our watches
are water resistant (even if they are marked as such) or against wear and
tear of mechanical parts which may require replacement. If we are
able to obtain parts (and we have sources all over the world) we will
provide you with a written quotation before commencing any work. If you
return the watch under warranty and we find that it has been tampered
with or the watch has had work done to it by another watchmaker, we will
be unable to undertake any work under warranty.
