Our customer services department determine eligibility for refunds and exchanges once customers have

contacted us and explained their reason for return. Returning packages without prior approval will halt or

delay the returns process.

All returned items must be in brand new condition, unused and with original tags and packaging. Requests

to return items due to quality issues, damage during shipping, style or colour error or allergic reaction from use must be accompanied by photos or other evidence that clearly shows the problem with the item or items received. ( Perceived colour difference due to the display settings of your computer monitor are not grounds for a refund.)

Once a watch has been returned it will be individually inspected. If  found to be in an unsaleable condition

the request will not be processed. Watches that are returned damaged due to having the back of the watch removed, tampered with or scratched, will not be eligible for a refund or exchange.


 A handling fee of £15.00 per item will be charged on all non faulty items . Postage costs will not be refunded.


It is the responsibility of the customer to pay for all shipping charges and import duties or tax incurred for returning your item.

We strongly recommend that you send any returns by registered post and that the delivery service used insures you for the full value of the goods/item being returned. We cannot take responsibility for any items lost without proof of delivery.


If you have any other questions or to submit a returns request please contact us at 

After passing a visual and functional test, your watch or watches are then photographed three times to record their physical condition before delivery to you. This ensures to our customers that all watches are free of damage before delivery. This process also serves to keep a record of each watch sent and ensures customers receive the watch or watches ordered. In the event that your watch has been delivered faulty or damaged during transit you must notify us with 24 hours of receipt. Failure to do so will invalidate your warranty.

Quartz movement 1 year warranty, excludes watch batteries.

We strongly recommend the following when your watch battery or strap need changing;


(I) That your watch is returned to Watermans for changing (at charge) or


(II) your watch is taken to a qualified Jeweller or watchmaker to carry out this process.


Due to the complexity of the inner construction of the watch any manual work undertaken by a non qualified person is likely to short circuit the watch and stop it working completely. Any work done outside of the above remit will negate the watch warranty immediately and will not be accepted by our returns at Watermans.

Any consequential damage or scratches caused to the watch casing, watch strap or watch face due to accidental damage or by attempting to gain access to internal movement with the use of pen knives, screw drivers are at the customers own loss and are not covered by warranty. 

Any attempt to remove the back of your watch  or works undertaken by a non qualified  watchmaker will invalidate your warranty.
