SHIPPING ADDRESS DISCLAIMER
Your shipping address may not be checked by our system for security reasons and to guarantee the best delivery time.

Therefore, we rely on your accuracy to provide your shipping address. We copy paste your address which you provided when creating your account. You may be asked to change your shipping address if this address is not recognised.

PRICING AND TAXES
Citizens and Residents of European Union States are bound to pay the VAT. Even if you are not a Citizen and or a Resident of European Union States but, if your delivery address is in any of the European Union Member States, you are bound to pay the VAT. Citizens and Residents outside the European Union States maybe eligible for a VAT refund, conditions apply as per the European Union Tax Laws and Regulations and or The Netherlands Tax Laws and Regulations. VAT is usually charged upfront while invoicing, therefore, for Citizens and Residents who stay outside the European Union States, please make a note that, we may work to claim for your VAT refunds; in order to process this, we will need to submit your purchase proof which is an original invoice (which we generate from our system) and, we will need to also attach the delivery proof to your address outside the European Union, this is the document which we will collect from the courier company who makes the delivery to your address and we can get confirmation, only when the delivery has been successfully made. We file all VAT refunds once every end of the quarter, once in 3 months, and it usually takes around 1-2 months and sometimes more, to get this refund. Please make a note that, we can only file for your VAT refunds, while the decision of approval of this refund is decided by the European Union VAT refund regulations and or The Netherlands Tax department, therefore, if by any chance, if your refund is refused, we should not be held responsible for this matter, after-all, we are doing this service for you as our gratitude to you for shopping with us. And of course, as soon as (if) we get your refund, we will issue you a discount code of the same amount and email this as a gift voucher to you and you can redeem it on your next purchase with us. We hope we have clearly explained the VAT refund essentials, however, if you still have any questions and or concerns, please feel free to email us at; email@example.com
HOLIDAY SEASON AND DELIVERIES
The holiday season especially around Christmas time gets busy at times. We usually take a holiday break from 21st December till 11th January of the following month. Therefore, orders arriving at the last moment, shall be delivered accordingly. Please also consider the fact that, around 23rd onwards, even the courier companies get too occupied therefore, deliveries around those days cannot be confirmed upfront. In such situations, please email us if you have any questions and or concerns. Our email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
WARRANTY AND OTHER MATTERS
When you buy from us, especially your Swiss Watch will come with a warranty card valid for the period as described in the product information. All watches sold by us are guaranteed to be original, new and authentic sourced from their principle companies who are manufacturers. We offer an additional 1 year warranty on all Our Swiss Watch (warranty is always on manufacturing defect and not for miss handling and wear and tear).
Battery life: We guarantee the battery life for quartz models to be around 12 months. If your battery dies off before these 12 months from the purchase date, we are extremely sorry for that, however, we will be happy to replace it free of cost or if you are located far off, we shall offer you a special price off on your next purchase. Please e-mail us: at email@example.com to discuss this further.
Automatic watches: We assume you know the mechanism about Automatic watches. In simple terms, when you wear your watch and your arm makes movements, the watch automatically winds itself (remember those old model watches which we had to wind them manually, with automatic watches, this winding of the watch happens with the movement of your arm). Therefore, you need to wear your watch in order to be sure it keeps running on time. On an average, most of our collections of Automatic watches have a power reserve time of around 24-36 hours, (unless otherwise mentioned about the longer power reserve times) which means, you can wear the watch during the day and at night if you leave it aside, it still keeps running, but you should wear it again the following day. If you don’t, your watch might stop. This does not mean it is damaged, all you will need to do is, shake it softly and wear it again and it will start working again, you might need to re-adjust the time/date. You may need some servicing done of your Automatic watch once in some 5-6 years, depending upon your usage, wear-and-tear and the weather conditions. Usually, Automatic watches in Europe smoothly run for longer period of time, as compared with Asia, because of the high humidity there.
Leather straps and all other leather items from our collections: The life of your leather strap and or the leather belts and any other leather items from our collection depends absolutely upon how you use and care for it. For some, leather products last for several years, whereas, for few, these might get worn out in 1-2 years (happens especially in very high humid climates especially with leather straps for watches). Leather straps and leather products are not covered under any warranties.
Stainless steel bracelets: Most of the stainless steel bracelets last long, really long. You should occasionally take some care with cleaning your watch and it’s bracelet with a moist cloth. Do not use any strong chemicals, rather, just water with a soft cloth.
