Any existing warranty provided by The Watch Channel will be null and void if water damage occurs.

c. Important Information
Please note that our warranty covers manufacturing and mechanical defects only.
Our warranty is subject to the same terms and conditions as the manufacturer warranty. The standard manufacturer warranty does not cover theft or loss of the watch. Also excluded is Normal wear-and-tear or damage caused by accidents or mishandling/mistreatment of the watch, as well as damage caused due to water submersion, against the manufacturer’s guidance. In particular, the warranty does not cover wear of the watch strap/bracelet.

Any modification of a watch by the addition or substitution of components by aftermarket products not provided by the manufacturer will also invalidate the warranty.  Use of aftermarket components can severely compromise the technical performance, reliability, and waterproofness of the watch.
The warranty is in addition to your statutory and common law rights. Should it be revealed upon diagnostics of the timepiece that apparent negligence is evident (with regards to the functionality of the watch), the policy may be subject to incur additional costs to restore piece back to optimal viability.

c. Refund and Returns Policy

You may return the timepiece to The Watch Channel under the following conditions:

  • It is unworn and undamaged
  • The amount refunded to you is liable to cover the handling fees, shipping fees, import & duty fees (if applicable) and card fees incurred by your returned purchase.
  • Any timepiece that fails quality inspections (scratches, worn & damaged, functionality) will be returned to you and a partial refund will be given.
  • Should the timepiece not be returned with the following; there will be fees involved to cover the charges of excluded items if applicable
    –      Warranty Card (The Watch Channel 12-month warranty card)
    –      Box and papers (either original box and warranty papers or The Watch Channel brand)
  • If the timepiece was purchased on a rubber strap and the straps were sized (cut), the timepiece will not be returnable at the same value it was purchased.

Once received and inspected, a credit/refund will be issued for all timepieces meeting the 7 day guarantee provisions. The credit will be issued on the card upon which payment has been made. If you choose to exchange your item outside of the 7 day refund policy, a refund or exchange value will be at the discretion of the Watch Channel.
