|Will you purchase an imitation watch?||Unfortunately replicas or “fakes” have no resale value.|
|Do you purchase pre-owned watches that are not made of gold or platinum?||Yes, in fact many high-end watchmakers use stainless steel and other metals. Certain stainless steel models actually have greater resale values than watches constructed from gold or platinum.|
|Do the original box and papers add value to my pre-owned watch?||Yes. In some cases having the original box, papers and manufacturer’s manuals can add substantial value.|
|Do you purchase antique and vintage watches?||Yes. Luxury Watch Buyer purchases watches of all ages. Keep in mind that a mass-marketed antique watch may have very little to no resale value. As with all pre-owned watches, resale value is based on the marketability of the watch.|
All watches are sold with an unconditional three day return privilege to give purchasers the opportunity to reassure themselves of the authenticity and condition of watches purchased. (This return option cannot be offered on international sales due to issues with the US Customs Service.) The purchase price, less shipping costs and restocking fee, if applicable, will be refunded upon receipt of the watch in the same condition it was shipped to the purchaser. If there is evidence that a watch as been worn, any links removed from the bracelet, or any protective plastic removed from the watch, a ten to twenty percent restocking fee will be charged. If the watch case has been opened, the return privilege is void. No other warranty is provided, or implied, unless so stated in the posting. Three days after the buyer receives the watch, all sales are final.
We use FedEX 2nd Day for shipments to addresses in the US. An adult signature is required for receipt of all packages. Shipping charges in the US are based on the weight and value of the item shipped. All shipments are insured for the full purchase price of the item. In the event of a return, shipping fees are not refundable.
Due to the difficulty of credit card verification and identification on international purchases, Luxury Watch Buyer does not accept credit cards for purchases outside the United States. We will accept only bank wire transfers for these transactions. We will be pleased to supply our banking information in response to your inquiry. International shipments are made by FedEx International Priority and cost $60 to $110, depending on the weight and value of the item. Please note that we are not responsible for additional costs, such as customs, duties, VAT, taxes, etc. Since customs policies vary widely from country to country, we urge our international customers to contact their local customs office for an estimate before ordering. Please note that we must declare the full value that you paid for your watch on the shipment. We cannot falsify customs declarations. The amount of insurance coverage available varies depending on the country to which an item is shipped. We can only ship to those countries to which watches can be insured for full value. Please contact us for more information.
