We will also not be able to honour the 12 month warranty if a third party has opened up the watch. Please call if you have any problem with your watch within the warranty period.
The warranty does not extend to the watch bracelets, clasps, watch cases, watch glasses, buttons and crowns nor does it cover any damage done to the case and the movement by water or moisture entering the watch because of a handling error.

Condition of the Watches
Our condition classification serves only as a guide as the estimation of the condition of a watch is always subjective. Therefore it may be possible that on rare occasions your view of a condition of a watch may be different to ours.
Unworn - Never worn, protective stickers may still be intact on the watch, however on some occasions they are removed by the original retailer.
Pre-Owned Mint - No marks or very few signs of use. Any marks will be very minute and hardly visible.
Pre-Owned Fine - Some slight surface marks that may be visible.
Pre-Owned Good - Some visible surface marks on the watch.
If we have graded a watch as ‘Pre-Owned Mint’ it simply means that it is in an excellent condition, very minute blemishes or wear marks, it will also normally include the original box and paperwork.
Older watches can be ‘Pre-Owned Mint’ or even ‘Pre-Owned Fine’ if we consider them to be so for their age and again pretty much free from marks.
If a watch is just below this grade then we would just state is as ‘Pre-Owned Good’ it might have a few visible marks on the case of the watch or some marks on the bracelet or bezel, we have notes on each watch so please ask.
We speak to clients regularly to ensure that our grading is fair and a true representation of the watches we sell. When a watch is new it will state unworn in the condition box.
