We're still shipping! (read here)
Domestic shipping (within the United States) is unaffected and continuing as per normal.
Please note there may be some small localized delays within certain USPS distribution centers as a result of COVID-19. This should not affect the vast majority of deliveries, and where it does, it will only delay things for a few days - but we are pushing them as much as we can where this is the case.
The vast majority of international shipping is operating as normal and being delivered within regular timeframes, however, there is the potential for slight delays at customs borders due to increased traffic and reduced workforces.

We understand how important secure payment is on any online store, and our checkout process is as secure as it gets. Our site is not only SSL certificate encrypted, but we also allow for payments including credit and debit cards as well as through PayPal – the safest online payment system available.
My order has not arrived, what do I do?
US customers can expect to have their timepiece within 2 – 5 business days. However, if after this period you still have not received your item, then do not hesitate to get in touch with our friendly customer service team via email on email@example.com who will be happy to resolve this issue.
Please be patient with international orders as they will inevitably take longer to get to you. If for some reason your tracking link is not working or it is showing as delivered, please get in contact with either the courier or ourselves and we would be happy to find out what has happened.
What's the deal with your 30-day money back guarantee?
We offer a 30-days no hassle return & exchange policy:
If a product is damaged or was faulty upon delivery - please let us know as soon as possible. You will need to let us know within 7 days of receipt of the item in order to be eligible for a replacement or refund.
Our return/exchange policy is valid 30 days from receipt of the item. Orders returned after this date will not be refunded or exchanged and may be returned to the customer at their cost. The item does not necessarily have to arrive back to us within 30 days, it simply must have been sent (with proof of postage).
To be eligible for a return, goods must be unopened, unused, undamaged and accompanied by proof of purchase.
For returns, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject 'Returns' and include your order number, name and the reason for the return.
We will provide you with instructions of where to send returned goods.
Customers are strongly recommended to get proof of postage when returning goods to avoid "lost package" situations.
Please note that customers are responsible for shipping costs of returned items. When the returned item is received and inspected, you will receive a confirmation email, notifying about the status of the refund.
If the refund is approved, then it will be processed and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original payment method shortly after.
I've received a damaged / defective item!
We're so sorry! We have a very stringent quality control process but unfortunately, on very rare occasions, errors may slip through or items may be damaged in transit.
If you've received a product that is defective or has been damaged you must let us know within 7 days. We will always try to resolve the issue as quickly as possible - so the sooner you act, the quicker we can find a resolution. If you let us know after the 7 day period we reserve the right to refuse credit or exchange.
Can you tell me about the 12 month movement warranty?
All of our watches come with a 12 month movement warranty from the date you receive your watch. The warranty covers the watch movement against manufacturers' defects for 12 months from the date of purchase.
Within that period your watch will be repaired free of charge (except for a $19.95 shipping & handling fee) if any issue with the movement occurs. Please note that the warranty does not cover the case, glass or band/strap.
We cannot accept any liability for damage or loss caused in transit. Please note that damage caused through accident, misuse, neglect, inexpert repairs, normal wear and tear or theft is not covered. Our warranty is viewable here.
How do I set my watch?
For instructions on your timepiece please view our dedicated page here.
Is my watch waterproof?
All of our watches are at least 3ATM water resistant which means that splashes or brief immersion in water (like dropping it in the sink or getting caught in the rain) will not cause any damage. However they are not sufficiently resistant for swimming, diving, showering or bathing.
My Automatic Watch Has Stopped Working
For a self-winding watch to function properly the mainspring must build up a sufficient power reserve. Many people are unaware that a self-winding watch needs to be wound first manually before it will run automatically. This is called the initiation process and without this, your timepiece will never operate properly or consistently.
To initiate the watch turn the winding crown at the 3 o'clock position in a clockwise direction for about 20 revolutions. This start up wind is usually sufficient for most automatic watches. Please note that the crown must remain fully inserted whilst rotating.
After the initiation process has been completed the watch will wind itself automatically by means of an oscillation weight that moves every time the watch's position is changed. A self-winding watch should be worn for at least eight hours a day to maximize the power reserve. If this isn't possible, or if the watch has not been worn for more than 10 hours, the initiation process must be repeated.
You can view full instructions for all of our timepieces here.
