Terms of sale
Please note that you the customer are buying a vintage watch and that this carries a risk. Unless serviced by us it is in many cases unknown what the previous owner has done with the watch. Do not forget that a watch is actually an engine (even quartz movements) that runs 24 hours a day and may need service. Do not take vintage watches showering, swimming or sporting unless tested and certified by a watchmaker. Unless this fact is specifically mentioned in the invoice or the online service description, according to the terms of the Return & refund policy Vintageseiko.nl is not liable for damages due to inappropriate use after the watch has been delivered and/or received. Any reduction in value as a result is deducted from any refunds if the return policy is invoked.
Next day shipping (working days) - tracked, registered and insured. We know you are impatient, so make sure to be home because you will need to sign for delivery. Shipping fees are calculated using the shopping basket (Eurozone 20 euro, worldwide 35 euro). We baby our watches so don't worry about packaging and condition.
You can buy an incoming watch and beat everyone to it! For customers who trust Vintageseiko.nl and/or know me from impeccable past dealings. Your payment will be put in escrow and payed back upon demand, minus a 10% reservation fee - no questions asked.
Payment will be refunded if and when the watch needs more work than estimated and current pricing is no longer feasible - the 10% reservation fee is then included of course. This however rarely happens. In any case the watch will remain in the Incoming watches section for you to renew your reservation if you so desire.
Then again... talk to us and ask for a reservation, paying 10% in advance (non-refundable PayPal friends) and the rest at your leisure using Paypal commercial or whatever suits you best.
Please keep in mind that preferred and trusted customers, having made purchases regularly, will often be number one on the list when no payment has been made yet to reserve a watch. Just talk to us, it alway helps..
Sales will be final once the watch is shipped to you, under terms of sale.
After receiving your watch you can take two days to evaluate whether the watch matches the description .. we can extend this period and/or discuss horological measures, but will accept no buyer's remorse or returns afterwards or indeed return shipments without preamble as we need the money to source the next great watch!
