Watch Repair & Co. Watch Repair Limited Warranty
Need a warranty? You got it. Nothing is as important as peace of mind, and we at Watch Repair & Co. offer several limited repair warranties according to the level of service that you purchase:
Quartz Watch Overhual – 1 year coverage from date of Invoice.
Quartz Watch Tuneup – 90 days coverage from date of Invoice.
High Grade Mechanical and Quartz Watch – 12 months coverage from date of Invoice. Some watches will qualify for extended coverage up to a maximum of 24 months (these will be specified at time of repair). This warranty only covers the parts installed at the time of repair.
Kinetic Watch Service – The capacitor/battery is covered for 1 year from date of invoice on Tuneup service.
Complete Kinetic service – all movement parts Watch Repair & Co. installs and the capacitor/battery are covered for 1 year. If the watch is not worn for a period of time and the battery is allowed to drain completely the warranty is void.
The above warranty is void if the watch is NOT worn regularly. The watch does not need to be worn during the night. If the customer uses a genuine Seiko Kinetic Energy supplier the warranty is valid. Any other “charging” device or watch winder use voids the warranty. No refunds will be given.
Watch Battery Replacement – The original purchaser of a qualified service can return the watch to Watch Repair & Co., at the purchaser’s expense for battery replacement and pressure test (no other free service is performed) for the life of the watch or for as long as the original purchaser of the service owns the watch. No additional work is performed under the watch battery replacement terms of warranty. Return postage is the responsibility of the owner of the watch. Return postage is $30 unless prepaid postage is provided with the watch when sent in under this warranty. 5 year battery warranty is limited to replacement of the battery free from the date of invoice for 5 years. This is not a battery that will last for 5 years but a warranty that we will replace it during that 5 years. The purchaser is responsible for shipping in both directions.
