Timekeeping Ability of Vintage Watches
A well maintained and frequently serviced vintage mechanical watch tends to keep time within 1 or 2 minutes per day or better. Usually the higher the initial quality of the watch the more likely it is to keep accurate time. Even small details such as minor wear on the mechanisms wheel pivots, due to infrequent or incorrect servicing can greatly affect the performance of a watch. Some of the timepieces on our site are 75 to 115 years old and replacement parts are extremely difficult to acquire. These watches will often work very well, but sometimes cannot be expected to consistently keep time better then within a few minutes per day. Often these older watches are seen as rare and valuable collector pieces and not necessarily as accurate timekeeping instruments. It must be noted that no mechanical watch whether it is made today or in years past can rival the accuracy of a contemporary quartz mechanism.
Warranty and Repairs
All our watches are carefully cleaned, repaired, detailed and timed by our watchmaker and carry a 90 day warranty from date of purchase to function within the guidlines sepecified above. This does not cover damage to mechanism parts caused by misuse, an impact or water damage. If your watch is not performing within the guidelines specified above you must contact us before you return the watch to make sure the repair will be covered by the warranty. We reserve the right to offer a full refund instead of performing the repair. Damage to external parts of the watch such as crystals, bands, bracelets, lugs, cases, bezels or buckles are not covered by this warranty and are the responsibility of the purchaser.
All watches must be sent with a tracking number and insurance and must be labeled "For Repair and Return" if a customs declaration form is required. The purchaser of the watch is fully responsible for the item until it is received by Style In Time.
Return and Exchange Information
If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase and wish to return a item for a refund you must contact Style In Times within 3 days of receipt. Once we confirm the return via email and the item is received back (within 10 days) in the same condition it was originally shipped we will issue a full refund minus a 10% restocking fee and shipping costs. Exchanges are also accepted for an item of equal value within the same guidelines as listed above. The purchaser of the returning item is fully responsible for it until it is received by Style In Time. Special instuctions given by us on how to mark any customs documents requred to return the item must be followed.
Please note that when a discount is given on the purchase of multiple items they can be all returned for a full refund minus 10% restocking fee and shipping, but if only a portion of the original order are returned the refund will only cover the difference between the full original retail price of the items kept and the total amount paid.
Many of the watches listed on our site indicate that they are "Waterproof". Even if this were true when originally sold many years ago (quite a few were not) they should not be treated as such today. Sometime this is simply due to an unreliable "waterproof" design or because the rubber gaskets are old and stiff. Either way you are purchasing a rare and collectable timepiece, so to try to keep it in good condition it is always best keep away from water and humidity whenever possible.
