Policies and Terms Subject to Change without Notice
We endeavour to notify our users of any changes in our policies, legal notices and disclaimers. However, in order to allow MWC to quickly and efficiently update, improve and manage this site. We reserve the right to change these Terms and Conditions of Use, in whole or in part, at any time with or without notice. You should always check these Terms and Conditions of Use prior to using the MWC Website. Your continued use of the MWC Website following the posting of changes to these Terms and Conditions of Use will mean you accept those changes.
Occasionally slight improvements or changes will be made to a watches specification, for example a model which is using a Miyota 8215 movement might be upgraded to a Miyota 8315, water resistance can sometimes be increased where manufacturers can improve the watches performance, this means that for example a watch with a plexiglass crystal (plexiglass is always challenging when it comes to water resistance) might have been 30 meter water resistant but would be upgraded in future production to 50 m, other small improvements are things such as the crystal itself which can sometimes be upgraded for example from mineral to sapphire. The specifications are always improvements no product is ever downgraded, there can also sometimes be slight changes in case dimensions but it will always be a minor change which is made for technical reasons. Whenever possible we try to ensure that the details on the website are exact but sometimes the improved models run alongside the earlier model so we have no alternative but to keep to the old specification for a transitional period and only make the changes on the website once only the new higher specification stock is for sale.
All orders are processed in USD. While the content of your cart is generally displayed in the currency of your location you will checkout using USD at the most current exchange rate which is updated every few minutes in real time based on the current bank exchange rates, this ensure the price you see in any currency other than USD will always be current and correct.
Cancellation Between Placing an Order and Shipment
To ensure speedy trouble free deliveries MWC like many companies use various order fulfillment, packing and shipping centers in different locations. This system greatly improves the delivery and order processing generally. The only downside is that if an order is placed and then suddenly cancelled between payment and shipment we are likely to have difficulty preventing the from order being shipped and this is especially the case over the weekends and when the applicable shipping center switchboard is closed. The issue arises because orders are sent to the shipping centers automatically from the website immediately they are placed and in many cases the packing staff are processing the incoming orders when the call center is closed because staff pack 24/7 in some cases, this means they might well be picked up by the Post Office, UPS, DPD etc before we have time to prevent the shipment.
In some cases the item can be retrieved from the courier company or post office cage in which the parcels are bulk collected but because these cages contain large numbers of parcels (often 100+) the packing center charge us between €15 and €40 due to the amount of time they have to spend going through all the parcels until the item is located. If this situation arises we have no choice but to pass this charge onto the buyer so it can sometimes be easier for you to return the item after it is received in which case the only amount incurred is the outbound shipping charge. In the event you have any concerns or have ordered the wrong item etc please contact us and we will gladly advise the most cost effective way to resolve the problem.
Please Note: If you are in a EU country, the goods will be sent from another EU country meaning there will be no duty or taxes payable. If you happen to be in the United Kingdom, then the order would be transferred to our UK shipping center for on with shipping.
With the exception of deliveries to UK and EU addresses local charges (e.g. sales taxes such as VAT or GST, customs duty, carrier disbursement fees etc) can sometimes be levied, this will depend on where you are located and the local customs regulations, we tend to find that some countries levy these charges and others do not. In the event these charges are applied they are the buyers responsibility because they are something over which we have no control.
Returns & Refunds Policy
If, for any reason, you are unhappy with your purchase, or it does not meet your requirements, you can return it to us within 14 days of receipt, it must be in its original condition and packaging. If you wish to return a watch please notify us using the form at the link below*. Please note that the watch, strap or other item purchased must be in new and resalable condition. If the item has been worn and the plastic protectors on the dial and/or caseback have been removed, or there are other factors indicating usage such as the strap shows signs of the watch being worn the returns policy will not apply. For clarification the essential point is that the goods should not have been used beyond what would be expected if you had handled or examined an item in a shop prior to making a purchase.

* This does not apply if you have asked for a watch to be engraved or personalized in some other way because in these circumstances it cannot be resold.
In the unlikely event that you receive a watch that is defective, has been damaged in transit, or is not the one you ordered then you can return it to us for exchange or a full refund within 14 days of receipt. In the case of damage please contact us as soon as possible because the delivery company sometimes wishes to inspect the item in situ or alternatively uplift the item as quickly as possible after the delivery. Under the above circumstances we will also refund you the cost incurred in returning the item to us. If you are returning a watch because it is incorrect, we will only refund your postage costs if the item is wrong through an error on our part and not if the watch was wrongly ordered by yourself. Particular care should be taken when ordering straps to ensure that you order the correct width to avoid the problem of needing to exchange the item.
Failure to Accept Delivery
Please note that if you order an item and the delivery company inform us that It was refused it can cause significant problems and costs. Whilst fortunately this is not a frequent event there are occasionally situations where a buyer decides they no longer require an item which they have ordered, in this event most of the carriers such as UPS and FedEx will charge to return the item back to us in which case we have no alternative but to pass this charge onto the customer and deduct it from the refund because in these circumstances we have done everything that is required to get the item to you we would refund less the return shipping and processing charges once the item is received back at our packing and shipping center.
Another thing to keep in mind is that we sometimes find that if you are having the order delivered to a business location the people handling inbound parcels are prone to refuse an item without checking with the individual concerned we would strongly recommend being very cautious in this situation and notifying the people who handle the incoming parcels that you are expecting a delivery to avoid this problem arising. Usually, we would be notified if there is a delivery issue and would email you for your instructions but we are not always informed and these sorts of problems can be avoided if you keep a close eye on the tracking details and contact the carrier because it's very important to act quickly to avoid a return.
You will receive tracking information after the order is shipped, in our experience it is always wise to keep an eye on the parcel even if it's going to your home address just in case for some reason the carrier tries to deliver but does not put a note through the door to say they have called. Timeframes for delivery are set out on the website so you will have a pretty good idea of when the item will arrive and what to expect, for example if it is expected to arrive within 24 to 48 hours and is not there after four days it would be wise to check the tracking to find out what is causing the delay, the option which is popular with most of our clients is to sign up for email notifications regarding the delivery status. Of course in the event of any problems you can always contact us for assistance but the above guidance should generally avoid most of the issues.
How To Return An Item
Items must be returned in their original packaging and with all booklets, guarantees, film on the crystal and product tags if they are attached. To enable us to process your return more efficiently, we ask you to include a covering note with your item stating why it is being returned and whether you want an exchange or a refund. In this note you should also include your order or invoice number, or a copy of the original invoice, so that we can track your order on the system. If an item is returned without a covering note then, if we are able to trace your order on the system, we shall contact you by phone or email to ascertain the reason for return. If we do not hear back from you within 30 days we reserve the right to either return the item to you or, if the item qualifies, process a refund minus a 7.5% administration fee. Returns should be sent via an insured and traceable method, we cannot be held liable for any items which go missing in the post and do not reach us. Please note that if you do not pay enough postage for the parcel and we have to pay a fee to take receipt of it, then we shall deduct that amount plus a 7.5% administration fee from any refund. Please allow up to 7 working days after receipt for all refunds and exchanges to be processed. Please contact us before returning an item and we will confirm the location that it should be sent to.
