1 Year -100% Guarantee Warranty

  • All repair and service comes with a 1 year - 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed coverage.

  • Crystals are also not covered as they will scratch, chip and crack if mishandled. 

  • Timing: Pocket Watches can vary in their ability to keep accurate time.  We do our best to return all Pocket Watches to their best time keeping levels.  The empirical fact, however, is that Pocket Watches do not keep as accurate time as modern day watches.
