CONDITION: As described above.
PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU BUY: We are also fans and collectors of vintage watches, so here is a thing or two about them. Vintage watches are old and mostly simple mechanical movements. However well they are kept, cared for and/or serviced, they will never be as dependable as a modern watch for time-keeping purposes. In the same way that you would not use your vintage car to drive from London to Paris, but to enjoy it to go for a Sunday drive or a night out on the town, vintage watches should also be considered in the same way. Admire them for what they are and do not ask too much from them. Sometimes they will not start, or they will go a bit fast or a bit slow and will need the care of a watch 'mechanic'. With that in mind, enjoy your classic vintage timepieces and honour them for what they truly are; some of the smallest mechanical movements ever produced. .
PHOTOGRAPHY: I strive to present my items as they are and not as they might have been. Therefore, even though my photographs are many, detailed and of excellent quality, I do NOT use a studio environment or lighting to 'enhance' their presentation. All the photographs you see are taken in natural lighting without the help of any technical, mechanical or digital enhancement tools or software. It is for this reason that, what might otherwise actually be a thin hairline or minute spec, might look much larger or visible than they actually are.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: Our products are always carefully cushion-packed in heavy-stock, post-office carton boxes or jiffy bags for safe travelling. Nevertheless, shipping is out of our and your control and in the extreme case that your item is lost or damaged we will have to find a solution between us [seller and buyer].

FREE ‘Registered’ Shipping does not include 'Insurance', which is recommended. In such case that you opt not to insure your purchase, we cannot be held responsible after the item/s leaves us.

As the majority of my products are vintage, they are described as best as they can be with a naked eye. Buyers should understand that vintage pieces are almost always used, unless otherwise noted as NOS [New Old Stock]. Nevertheless, I do not sell damaged goods and describe my merchandise to the best of my ability. My photos are of high-resolution so that you can notice even the smallest detail. To the best of my knowledge, I do not sell fake products. Any adjectives used to describe my products are used under the context of a vintage item. If you have further questions, please ask; I will try to answer to the best of my knowledge and as fast as I can.
