Watch description and warranty

1. All watches sold by BTW are classified as pre-owned. Although some will be completely as new and never worn they have originally been sold by a manufacturer authorised distributor (AD)

2. BTW will specialise in the sale of pre-owned unworn watches. Each unworn watch will be in as new condition with all the manufacturer seals intact and likewise will come with instruction manuals ( at times in a foreign language), tags, certificates, boxes etc. Should there be any missing seals etc we will notify the customer pre-sale.

3. BTW will also supply pre-owned watches from various luxury manufacturers. Each watch will be prepared to a high standard for a retail sale and will be described accurately. As BTW wishes to ensure customer satisfaction on each occasion we will be pleased to discuss any watch in detail. Like most of our customers we are enthusiasts too and will only sell what we believe are lovely watches that will delight you for many years to come.

4. All watches sold by BTW will be in good working order and will include a 30 day BTW warranty unless otherwise stated. Pre-owned unworn watches will carry the balance of the manufacturer’s warranty.

5. In line with the policies of all watch manufacturers, BTW warranty does not extend to external components (items like bezels, crystals, winding crowns, etc.), are all subject to daily knocks and damage over which we have no control—we may have to discuss the cost of repairs to such items with the owner.

6. It should be noted that some watches will have been previously enjoyed and therefore may show some signs of wear to the bracelet, leather strap etc. These will be replaced/refurbished if required and if not will be shown in the watch description.
