Visual defects refer to issues or flaws that are readily apparent upon receiving the product and can be identified through a visual inspection. These defects might include things like scratches, dents, discolorations, or any noticeable damage to the external appearance of the item. 

Customer Obligation: 

  • To facilitate the handling of visual defects, it's important to promptly report such issues, within 24 hours of receiving the product.

Dispatch Team Assurance:

  • To ensure your satisfaction, our dispatch team comprises experienced and trained personnel who conduct thorough pre-dispatch operational tests on all watches.

Security Measures:

  • Our dispatch area is equipped with High-Definition Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras to guarantee that the right item is sent in the correct condition.

Additional Visual Records:

  • For added reassurance, we may retain additional photographs or videos of many watches, demonstrating that items were dispatched without defects and in the intended condition.

Manufacturing defects refer to flaws or issues that are inherent to the product's design or production process, leading to problems in functionality, performance, or safety. Unlike visual defects, manufacturing defects might not be immediately obvious upon inspection but could become apparent after use. To address manufacturing defects, reporting is required within 30 days of purchase.

If you believe your item has developed a fault after these time periods, you will need to file a warranty claim. Please email us at, and we'll be pleased to assist you. You can also refer to our warranty section for more information. Additionally, please note that for warranty claims, you will need to send the item back to the manufacturer at 15-17 Charles Street, Hoole, Chester, CH2 3AZ.

You have statutory rights in relation to any goods you purchase from us that are either not of satisfactory quality or fit for purpose or as described at the time of purchase.

Initially, we will attempt to troubleshoot the issue. If troubleshooting doesn't resolve the issue, we will arrange a free postage label for you to return the watch to our premises. Our fully trained technical team will then conduct a range of tests based on the reported fault and produce an inspection report within 3 working days.

Following the tests/inspection, if it is established that the item is defective we will arrange a free repair or replacement. However, in line with your statutory rights we can also offer a refund.

If following the tests, the technical team determines that the fault has been caused by damage (accidental or otherwise) or misuse whilst in your possession then you will not be entitled to a refund and will be liable for a £15 charge to have the watch returned to you.

If the watch is found not to be faulty, you will be responsible for the £15 cost of returning the watch to you, and we will provide you with the inspection report. Alternatively, upon your request, we can send the watch to the manufacturer's repair centre for an assessment on your behalf, with you being responsible for the £15 postage cost to send it to the manufacturer.

If you choose to send the watch either directly or to us and we send on your behalf to the manufacturers service centre and they determine that the fault is due to accidental damage, misuse, or impact damage, you may incur charges for the repair.

If you're returning your watch outside of the 60 days since you ordered it for any watch-related issues, feel free to reach out to us through email at Before reporting the problem, we recommend carefully reading the instruction manual. Online guides and videos can be found on YouTube can be very helpful in understanding the mechanism in your watch.

If troubleshooting does not rectify the fault, we will direct you to our service centre where your watch can be tested under your warranty. However, please note that if we determine that the fault is a result of accidental damage, misuse, or impact damage, there may be a repair charge applicable.
