 Purchasing eligibility

 Only individuals (and not legal entities) who (a) have reached the age of legal majority required to enter into contracts (eighteen in most countries); (b) have legal capacity to enter into contracts; and (c) use a shipping address in a country    that we ship to, may order products through the Direct Sales Chanel. If you are under the age of legal majority or otherwise cannot lawfully enter into a contract, you must have your parent or guardian place an order on your behalf and they will be asked to agree to these Terms & Conditions.

By placing an order through the Direct Sales Chanel, you accept to refrain from reselling the product within 12 months and you represent and warrant that you are a bona fide end-user customer purchasing for your own or another’s personal use and will not deliver, sell or otherwise distribute our products or purchase our products or services for commercial purposes.

Orders & preorders

To order your watch, a deposit is required to confirm your interest. The deposit amount depends on the watch model. 

As soon as your deposit is executed, we will send you your advance payment receipt and an order confirmation. It is your responsibility to review the order confirmation. If you have any questions or concerns or if an order confirmation does not reflect your intentions, you should contact us at [email protected] without delay.

Should you change mind and cancel your order within 14 days, we will refund the full amount. If you decide to cancel your order later, the deposit paid - less banking or transfer fees, an administrative charge (10% of the deposit) and the eventual personalization costs   incurred - will be refunded. Your deposit will not be refundable in case of a cancellation after you have been informed that your watch has been manufactured. To cancel your order, you must contact us at [email protected].

One week before the delivery of your timepiece, we will send you your final invoice and ask you to proceed with the payment. 

All orders made through our Direct Sales Chanel that have been manufactured but not been fully paid and / or collected six months after the manufacturing date    can be sold to another customer. No refund can then be claimed.

All orders placed through our Direct Sales Chanel are subject to availability and acceptance of such orders by us. Quantity limits may apply in relation to orders for certain products. We reserve the right to refuse at any moment in time, without prior notice, orders exceeding a certain number of authorized products.
