6. RETURN POLICY
We offer our customers (except companies and institutions) a 60-day return policy. During this time the product can be returned or exchanged as stated in the Finnish Consumer Protection Act. In order to be qualified for return och exchange, the product has to be in an appropriate condition for it to be eligible for return or exchange as stated in the 6. chapter of the Finnish Consumer Protection Act. The purpose of this law is to give the consumers of online shops the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the product before making the final purchase decision, in the same way as they could at a physical store. Consumers have the right to familiarize themselves with the contents of the product packaging and can carefully try on the product. In order to be eligible for a return, the product has to be in the same condition as when it was received by the customer including all the parts of the product that were included with the product. The packaging of the product should be opened with care causing minimal damage to it. In the case of exchange or return the customer is responsible for all related delivery costs and the risk of damages when returning the item.
Restrictions to the return policy as stated in the Finnish Consumer Protection Act (Chapter 6 ,16 §):
- Engraved products can not be returned following the regulations regarding altered products.
- Orders can not be returned or cancelled if the product is ordered separately from the factory upon the customer’s request. If the product needs to be ordered or produced separately, it will be clearly stated in the product description.
Returns: Please read our return policy with care before returning or exchanging your order:
Repackaging the return or exchange: It is the sender’s responsibility to repackage the product into its original package or a suitable equivalent. The return should be repackaged with care in order to minimize the risk for damages during delivery. Our minimal requirement for the repackaging is for it to be of the same quality as the packaging in which the product was delivered to you. We are not responsible for damage caused to the product during the delivery of a return or exchange. If the customer has failed to repackage the return appropriately he or she is responsible for any caused costs.
7. WARRANTY AND DEFECT LIABILITY
The warranty is determined by the manufacturer’s terms of warranty. The warranty of watches only covers the movement and possible factory defects. The warranty does not cover the natural wear of the other parts of the watch such as the strap, case or glass caused. The warranty terms can commonly be found in the user’s manual that is delivered to you with the watch, or in a separate warranty attachment. The warranty details may also be listed on the manufacturer’s website. The warranty time of the watch depends on the brand, but most commonly it is 2 years. The warranty time is always clearly stated in the product description.
The Repair Location is determined by the manufacturer’s or importer’s warranty terms. You can also contact your local brand retailer with warranty requests. We may instruct our customers to contact the manufacturer or repair shop directly if this can be considered to be beneficial for the customer. Please contact us with any warranty concerns by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Costs caused by unnecessary repairs are considered as the customer's responsibility if it is clear that there was no need for repair. We are not responsible for damage caused by the customer. Unnecessary repair costs include, but are not limited to, possible costs on the repair shop’s side as well as delivery and logistical costs.
Opening the watch case for adjustment ends the warranty and the legal defect liability unless otherwise stated by the manufacturer. Battery changes should only be done at professional watch shops during the warranty period.
Proof of purchase is required when making a complaint about a faulty product. As the customer of our web shop there is no need for you to worry about the proof of purchase, as it is stored in our system. However, if making a complaint at our physical store a proof of purchase, such as a receipt, is needed.
The processing of complaints is preferably done in written format. You can send your free formatted complaint to us by emailing us at email@example.com. Complaints can also be processed at our physical store in Tuuri, Finland. Customers may also place a complaint through our online contact form.
Products that are damaged during delivery are replaced by us as soon as we can. Even though we put a lot of care when packaging your order, the delivery service may fail to deliver the items undamaged. We advise you to check the packaging and eventually even the product when collecting your parcel. You should place a damage notification to the delivery service provider as soon as you can if the parcel has been damaged during transport. Besides notifying the delivery service provider, please also get in touch with us so that we can deliver you a new item as soon as we can.
