RETURNS AND REFUNDS
Non-faulty Products or Services
1.1 If you are a consumer and have received a Product and it is not faulty or mis-described or you decide that you no longer want us to carry out the Services you have ordered then you may cancel the order and obtain a refund for that Product and/or Service (as applicable) provided you notify us in the manner set out in paragraph 1.14 and within the period set out in paragraph 1.16 and, where you wish to cancel an order for Services, provided that we have not already performed those Services. Please see the section, Cancelling an Order below for further information on your right to cancel.
1.2 Where you cancel an order for Products, you will need to arrange for return of the item(s) to us at your own cost, quoting your order number. Please see paragraph 1.10 for details regarding the methods that you can use to return Products to us. We will not reimburse you for any delivery or other costs that you incur in returning the goods to us. Your relevant order number must be quoted on all returns. Where you cancel an order for Services and we have received your item(s) for repair, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item(s) to you unless you are cancelling as a result of an increase to an estimate or because we have not returned your serviced items(s) to you within 90 days of the date you receive the relevant Service Confirmation.
1.3 You may of course inspect the Products that you purchase from us. However, whilst you are deciding whether to keep your purchases, you do have a statutory duty to take reasonable care of our Products. Accordingly, please do not damage the Products whilst you inspect them and please store and handle all Products with care and in a manner that is appropriate for the type of Product. Products must be returned complete (i.e. with any accessories or other parts that you receive with the Products) and, where possible, with all original packaging.
Faulty and mis-described Products or Services
1.4 In the unlikely event that you receive a defective or mis-described Product or a fault develops with an item(s) we have supplied or repaired then, provided you notify us in the manner set out in paragraph 1.14:
a) you may cancel the order and obtain a refund for that Product or request a repair or replacement up to 30 days following your receipt of the Product;
b) you will be entitled to a repair or replacement of the Product (or a refund if this is not possible) for up to 12 months following your receipt of the Product;
1.4.2 in relation to Services we have supplied to you, you will be entitled to ask us to re-perform the Service and repair the watch (or to provide a refund if such repair is not possible) up to 12 months following your receipt of your item.
1.5 Please do not return any items until you have received confirmation from us to do so. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions, for further details regarding the warranties that we provide in respect of the Products and Services you order.
1.6 Please note that we will not accept returns, provide refunds or re-perform Services if a fault arises from: fair wear and tear, wilful or accidental damage, negligence by you or a third party, abnormal or inappropriate storage or working conditions or maintenance, failure to operate or use the Products or items in accordance with the user instructions, misuse or alteration or repair of the Products or items by you or a third party that is not authorised by us or the manufacturer, you have fitted the Products yourself instead of taking them to a jeweller or other professional or, in the case of Services, faulty component(s) other than the repaired component(s).
1.7 You should provide us with proof of purchase when seeking to return a faulty or mis-described item or asking us to re-perform Services. You will need to arrange for return of the item(s) to us. We will inspect all items that we receive from you. If we confirm that the item is faulty or has been mis-described or that the Services were not provided to the requisite standard, we will reimburse your reasonable postage costs of returning the item to us (if any), if you provide us with satisfactory proof of those costs. If you have bought a faulty or mis-described Product or where there is a fault with the Services we have provided and you are entitled to a refund (see further paragraphs 1.4.1 and 1.4.2), we will reimburse you the full cost of the Product or Service (but not the value of any promotional code(s) used) to your original payment method within 14 days of our receipt of the faulty or mis-described item. If a fault with the watch (which we repaired) we will require you to send the watch back to us (please see further paragraph 1.10). If we are reimbursing you for the cost of all the items in an order, we will also reimburse you with the delivery cost for that order, if applicable.
1.8 Any ancillary contracts you have entered into associated with the Products you have returned will be automatically cancelled.
1.9 You have certain rights as a consumer, including legal rights relating to the repair and replacement of faulty goods and the re-performance of sub-standard services.
