- We cannot accept returns that have been altered or damaged, including watches that have been resized, show signs of wear by the buyer, or returned with missing or incomplete packaging.
- Shipping is non-refundable except in the following cases: you did not receive the watch pictured (as determined by the serial number), you received a watch that was not authentic, you received a watch that arrived DOA or has features that are non-functional.
