Restrictions
Postal code and recipient's land line telephone number are required in your shipping address. Please note that you will be responsible for any custom or import duty charges, if they apply to your country. Custom policies vary widely from country to country; please check your local customs office if you require further information.
Missed Deliveries
If you are not in to receive the delivery at the time the delivery is attempted, the courier should leave you a card. This will allow you to telephone them to arrange a redelivery at a more convenient time, or alternatively you can collect it from your local sorting office – please note this process may vary from country to country. It has been brought to our attention that the postman doesn't always leave a card so please track your order or check with your local delivery office to see if your package is there before contacting us about a missing item.

If for any reason the item is returned to us (e.g. incorrect address specified, item not called for), then we will inform you immediately by email or telephone as soon as we receive the item. We will contact you to arrange a re-delivery of your watch.

We also only use the highest quality packaging materials to ensure your order arrives safely.
Lost Deliveries
If your parcel does not arrive by the expected delivery date from the courier, the following scenarios could have occurred:

• Severe delays – due to high volume of parcels to deliver.
• Left with neighbour or local post office – you should receive a ‘while you were out’ card to inform you where they left your parcel. Please note on some occasions the postman may fail to leave one at your address.
• Incorrect delivery address – the address provided may be insufficient or unrecognised which we automatically returned back to us.

Before we can class a delivery as lost, we will ask you to follow these checks and confirm with us to help investigate the matter further. Investigations can take up to 7 working days, but during this time please contact DHL yourselves with the tracking details we provide. Once the above checks have been carried out and the parcel has been deemed lost, a claim can be carried out with the courier. The period of time for a parcel to be classed as ‘lost’ differs dependant on the delivery service used and the country sent to.
Failed Deliveries
There may be occasions where your order cannot be delivered due to ‘no follow up after a calling card is left’ or ‘an insufficient address has been supplied’. In these situations, it usually takes up to 30 working days for the courier to return the item back to us. Once we receive your parcel back, you will receive an email to determine whether you would like us to resend your parcel or process a refund. Please note redeliveries are chargeable to you, the customer.
