Q. Is your watch covered with a warranty?
A. Yes, the watch movements are warranted against manufacturing defects for one year but we do accept watches that have defects in workmanship or material outside of this time. Call it an unofficial lifetime warranty! Our watches use a Japanese Quartz Miyota movement that is reliable and accurate. See our printed warranty included with every watch for details. Most of our watch repairs and replacements are handled at our San Francisco facility. firstname.lastname@example.org
Our warranty doesn’t cover: battery, case, crystal, strap or bracelet.
THIS WARRANTY IS VOID IF THE WATCH HAS BEEN DAMAGED BY ACCIDENT, NEGLIGENCE, UNAUTHORIZED SERVICE, OR OTHER FACTORS NOT DUE TO DEFECTS IN MATERIAL OR WORKMANSHIP
Q. Are your watches waterproof?
A. No. We have 2 basic types of water RESISTANCE for our watches, 3 ATM and 5 ATM (which is specified in most of the product descriptions on our site for reference). The majority of our watches fall under the 3 ATM category.
Technically, this means they have “been tested to withstand static pressure for only a short period of time at the stated depth.” Put simply, they can be exposed to water, but should NOT be submerged in water i.e. swimming & diving.
Things like washing your hands, getting it splashed and day to day perspiration are all part of normal wear but we do not recommend you expose our watches on a continued basis to water & soap i.e. bathing/showering. The majority of our watches use Italian leather straps & antiqued finishes, which means they are not designed to endure constant contact to these conditions. Just as you wouldn’t swim or shower with your leather shoes or bag, we suggest you leave your watch poolside to keep it looking & working as it should. If it does accidentally get submerged in water and stops working, contact email@example.com and we can normally fix your watch & replace damaged straps for a fee. Please see our FAQ for further info on our watch warranty.
Below is the Industry Organization for Standardization (ISO) definition of 3 ATM water resistance, for those of you who want to be experts on the subject:
Protected in everyday life, bathing, accidental splashes, short swimming or car washing — it is resistant against perspiration, water vapor, rain drops. It is tested for water resistance up to 3 ATM, and must be able to survive 30 minutes under water at a depth of 1m (3 feet) followed by 90 seconds under a pressure corresponding to 30 meters.
There really isn’t much change in regards to the water resistance of a watch at this level, contrary to popular belief! According to the ISO, the only difference within this category is you can now go parachuting, hang gliding and skiing in it!
Here’s the official definition by the ISO for 5 ATM resistance:
Protected in everyday life, bathing, accidental splashes, short swimming, car washing, parachuting, hang gliding, and skiiing-it is resistant against perspiration, water vapor and rain drops.
Q. What type of battery do your watches use?
A. Our watch batteries are standard disc batteries, available anywhere batteries for watches and clocks are sold. Average life for a watch battery is 12 to 18 months. Changing a battery without the correct tools can damage the metal and delicate parts inside the watch, please seek a professional for help with this.
Q. Can I get a replacement watch band?
A. Yes, we can supply replacement bands for our watches. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for availability & cost. If you are unsure of the style of your watch, please include a snap from your phone so we can assess which strap you will need since we have a variation of widths that are not always interchangeable. Stock can be limited due to model and year of model.
Q. What materials are used in your watches?
A. Full grain genuine leather, cotton, nylon, vinyl. Metal used — Stainless steel / Brass / Alloy / Iron. Plating material — Nickel-free plating which may have a gloss, matte, antiqued finish or patina that has an aged look. No exotic or endangered skins used.
Q. How are your watches packaged?
A. Each watch is individually gift packaged and protected in a sleek custom-made TOKYObay box with pillow and warranty included.
