SELL TERMS & CONDITIONS
Please note the following:
Customer hereby acknowledges and understands that the initial purchase offer estimate from the Company is a preliminary estimate only based on other similar watches we have bought and sold in the recent past. These market prices are subject to change without notice and we reserve the right to make changes as necessary to reflect market conditions. This offer estimate represents the highest possible price we could pay you for your watch if it is in perfect salable condition, in need of no repairs or services as outlined below. Such restoration services are needed to place the watch in “like new” salable condition. All estimates are for watches that have their original box and papers and have all the links for the bracelets. These costs are then deducted from the original estimate to arrive at a firm purchase offer. All purchases are final except as the law permits.
If you do not accept this final firm purchase offer, you are under no obligation to sell it. We are happy to return the watch to you. Your ultimate satisfaction is our goal. Please note that most watches we receive do need some kind of restoration work especially watches that are over 5 years old. Also, it is not uncommon for us to receive inaccurate descriptions or conditions of the watch, missing or wrong model numbers, or wrong serial numbers, etc. These errors or misrepresentations can all greatly affect the final purchase offer. All watches not purchased will be returned to customers by FedEx 2nd day or USPS delivery method at customer’s expense.
Potential deductions from initial purchase estimate include but are not limited to:
- Service and overhaul of movement
- Buff & Polish
- New Crystal
- Missing original box and papers
- Missing links in bracelet
- New leather strap needed, or buckle
- New bezel, new bezel insert, new dial ( face ), new end links, etc
- New crown or tube
- New movement parts
- Rust issues or water damaged items
- Replacement of any parts that are not original Rolex factory
You represent that you are the sole owner of any watch that we purchase from you, and have the full power and authority to sell the watch to the Company free and clear of any rights, claims, interests or liens of any third party. Original receipts relating to customer’s original purchase of the watch are required and must be sent to the Company along with the watch. If you do not have the original receipt, contact the Company to see what other evidence of purchase might be acceptable. Company reserves the right to refuse any watch who’s original purchase cannot be verified.
Products that have been worn, altered or damaged will not be accepted for a refund. Any pre-owned watch may be returned within 3 days of purchase, provided the watch is in the exact same condition as it was sold and includes all the boxes, papers, books and accessories. Please inform one of our representatives of your intention to return the watch before you ship the merchandise. All return shipments must be post marked before the end of third calendar day from receipt of your watch and are sent at your sole cost and expense. Customers bear all risk of loss associated with any return. Please be sure to insure the contents for their full value as we are not responsible for lost or damaged packages. Upon receipt, all items will undergo a thorough inspection by one of our watch experts to ensure that the watch is in the original condition in which it was sold and it includes all tags (especially any “non-removable” tags), items/accessories, etc before we will issue a refund. This return policy is for on-line sales only.
All ads stating that prices are up to a certain percent off pertain to the full retail price of a new item. For instance, if an ad says “Up To 35% off” this means that our price is up to 35% less than what the full retail price of a new item would be.
