All of our products come with complete manufacturer's warranty.
The guarantee depends on the manufacturer’s policy and we strongly advise you to read the booklet thoroughly, as this will inform you of what is and what isn’t covered. Here are important guidelines for you to be aware of, as the warranty does not cover the following:
Damage to the bracelet/strap. Accidental damage and excessive wear and tear/abuse. Water damage. Batteries, if you have had your watch longer than one year. If you have had your watch for less than one year then we will change your battery, under the warranty, free of charge.
A return that falls under any of the above bullet points can be processed as a repair, however, these may be chargeable to you, the customer.
When a watch is returned back to us for a repair, it is sent to the manufacturer for examination. When we receive a response from the manufacturer with a repair quotation we will contact you immediately. Upon your approval, we will raise an invoice and request payment. Once payment is made, we will notify the manufacturer to carry out the repair work. This will take 4-6 weeks and during this time we will provide appropriate update via email on the status of the repair.
If you do NOT wish to proceed, we will be more than happy to return the watch back to you unrepaired. However there will be a charge of £15 for shipping and handling.
If we do not hear back from you within 1 month of making contact, we reserve the right to return your watch to the delivery address provided and to apply additional shipping and handling charges.
You can find more details about the manufacturer’s warranty in the booklet supplied with your product, or alternatively refer to the manufacture’s website.
All orders are shipped out before our 3pm cut off time. Any orders dispatched after the cut off time will be shipped out the following working day. We endeavour to meet the guaranteed delivery for your order, however, we cannot take responsibilities for any delays beyond our control.
If we are unable to meet the expected delivery date, we will inform you by email or phone as soon as possible.
As soon as the courier confirms that a delivery has been successfully made, you will then be responsible for the item(s) purchased.
We generally use Royal Mail for all domestic deliveries. If your parcel does not arrive by the expected delivery date from the courier, the following scenarios could have occurred:
Severe delays – due to high volume of parcels to deliver. Left with neighbour or local post office – you should receive a ‘while you were out’ card to inform you where they left your parcel. Please note on some occasions the postman may fail to leave one at your address. Incorrect delivery address – the address provided may be insufficient or unrecognised which we automatically returned back to us.
Before we can class a delivery as lost, we will ask you to follow these checks and confirm with us to help investigate the matter further. Investigations can take up to 7 working days, but during this time please contact Royal Mail yourselves with the tracking details we provide.
Once the above checks have been carried out and the parcel has been deemed lost, a claim can be carried out with the courier. The period of time for a parcel to be classed as ‘lost’ differs dependant on the delivery service used by Royal Mail. Here are the details as follows:
|Royal Mail Tracked Delivery||15 working days to confirm a lost parcel|
|Royal Mail Special Delivery by 1pm||15 working days to confirm a lost parcel|
|Royal Mail International Delivery||21 working days to confirm a lost parcel|
If your item has not arrived within these times we will immediately file a claim with the courier. This can take a further 30 days for the courier to carry out their own investigations.
Please be aware no refund or replacement will be issued until we have had confirmation from the courier that the parcel has been classed as ‘lost’. At this stage we can then contact you and offer a refund or replacement to resolve the situation.
There may be occasions where your order cannot be delivered due to ‘no follow up after a calling card is left’ or ‘an insufficient address has been supplied’. In these situations it usually takes 10-14 working days for the courier to return the item back to us.
Once we receive your parcel back, you will receive an email to determine whether you would like us to resend your parcel or process a refund. Please note redeliveries are chargeable to you, the customer.
Denial of receipt
In the event a parcel is signed for by you and there is evidence shown on the couriers tracking website, but you have not received it, we will immediately contact the courier with the details and raise a claim/complainant. The courier will be in touch with you for written documentation to confirm your parcel has not been received. We take these matters seriously and ensure a full investigation is carried out but we cannot take further action until we receive details from the courier. If the result shows clear evidence you received the parcel, we cannot take any further responsibility and the case will be dropped.
We prosecute anyone trying to fraudulently place orders through/on our website. Anyone we suspect of attempting to do this will be reported to the Fraud Action Team who will then take further action. In extreme cases we may seek legal advice and contact the police.
