Shipping & Handling
Q1. HOW LONG DOES SHIPPING TAKE?
A1. Shipping takes between 4-18 business days (not including weekends or public holidays) to arrive to you. Please note that this is the shipping time and does not include the time(3 – 4 Days) needed to process your order which includes your QC Assurance pictures. We are not held responsible for any shipping delays, as we have no control over the package once we have shipped it out. There are instances where customs clearance delays happen at different countries and that is beyond our control.
Q2. WHAT SHIPPING COMPANIES DO YOU USE?
A2. Depending on where we are shipping the watch we will either use EMS, FedEx, DHL, China Airmail and Special Airmail (Registered Airmail is mostly used for orders of small accessories, like parts, straps, etc.). Most shipments are sent using Express Courier and are fully trackable. Most of the time we will declare the item in the package to be of low value and as gift to avoid customs detection and suspicion. That is also to prevent customers from having to pay too much taxes and duties. However, please note that taxes and duties charges by different countries are all not within our jurisdiction so we are not liable for that if customs decide to charge you taxes and duties.
For Hong Kong Airmail, it is a special service that package is routed from China to Hong Kong and the package will exit from Hong Kong which is considered a safer exit option because a lot of EU countries customs check packages from China and not Hong Kong.
For DHL shipments, all of the packages will also exit from Hong Kong. When we send first tracking number via email and also the QC pics, that is the internal reference code from DHL. It is normally not trackable with the official DHL website. ONLY when the package exits Hong Kong, then the DHL side will issue an updated DHL tracking number which is traceable on the DHL website.
Q3. WHAT HAPPENS IF MY PACKAGE IS LOST IN TRANSIT OR STOLEN?
A3. If your package is lost in transit or items are stolen from the package, we are not liable for the losses. Please contact us immediately via email and we will try and work out a best solution (Normally we will do a reshipment based on 50% payment for the order). If you realise that your package delivered by the courier is empty or almost weightless, DO NOT SIGN for the package and question them why it is empty or weightless. Bring forth the complaint to their upper level management and email us also to follow up.
Q4. WHAT HAPPENS IF MY WATCH ARRIVES DAMAGED?
A4. You have 24-48 hours from the point your package arrives to tell us if there is a fault with your watch. If we do not hear of any complaints about your watches within 48 hours it is acknowledged by you that we have taken this to mean that you are happy with your order and there are no issues to resolve.
**Please go to the Warranties & Returns section below for a more expanded and in-depth explanation of our policies.
Q5. WHAT IS UK TRANSHIPMENT?
A5. Some countries have very strict customs and policies. It is a well-known fact that China manufacture a lot of replica goods so this will result in a package coming from China being opened and possibly confiscated. For these countries we strongly advise you to consider using our UK TRANSHIPMENT option. For an extra $25 we will have your watch shipped to our forwarding agent in the UK, who will then in turn ship your watch to you. This may seem like a much longer process and delivery time, but ultimately your order arrives to you 100% safe!
Countries that are advised to use UK TRANSHIPMENT includes:
Germany, France, Italy, Portugal, Hungary, Denmark, Iceland, Poland etc
We will try and advise customers when order is placed whether or not the UK TRANSHIPMENT option is needed.
