We require dealers to exclusively list authentic watches. However, if you have any doubts upon receiving your watch, you have 14 days after delivery of your order to contact our support team for assistance.

Strict dealer guidelines
In the interest of security, dealers on our marketplace must follow a strict set of rules. Before a professional dealer can sell on our platform, they must provide us with their photo ID, commercial register entry, business address, and tax number. Furthermore, we require all dealers to follow our strict dealer guidelines. Authentic customer reviews also provide insights into the respective dealer's services, so you can always be sure who you're buying from.
Dealers ship every order fully insured, so you can make both domestic and international purchases risk-free.
We tell every private seller to ship orders fully insured and with a tracking number. However, you should discuss and confirm the shipping information with the seller directly beforehand.
