Is there a warranty for the engraved watch?

An engraved watch does not lose the warranty, but it cannot be exchanged or returned.

What does the watch warranty cover?

The customer, based on the warranty card, can make a complaint about the watch movement. Some brands offer an additional warranty covering, for example, the crystal or the backlight.

What does the watch warranty not cover?

  • Mechanical damage
  • Wear and tear from normal daily use
  • A watch serviced outside an authorised service centre
  • Defects caused by improper use that does not comply with the manufacturer's manual and seller's instructions
  • Battery usage

Note: Ingersoll watches have a lifetime warranty for both the movement and the elements of the case, also those resulting from the normal use of the watch (excluding batteries, leather straps and buckles).

What is the difference between a statutory warranty and a contractual warranty?

Fundamental differences between these two instruments:

  • the statutory warranty is granted to each product, while the contractual warranty is an additional warranty whose conditions may differ for each product
  • in a statutory warranty, the seller bears the primary responsibility for providing the warranty, while in a contractual warranty, the warrantor (usually the manufacturer or distributor) assumes the responsibility for offering the warranty coverage
  • the statutory warranty period is 2 years, the period and conditions of the contractual warranty depend exclusively on the warrantor.

How can I request a warranty extension?

Once you add the watch to your cart, you'll have the option to extend the warranty, but please note that it's only available for selected products.

What are the conditions of the extended warranty?

In case of discovered defects the buyer can request a free repair or, if repair is not possible, a replacement, subject to the terms of the contract. If repair or replacement is not feasible, a refund will be provided. Note that the warranty does not cover battery replacement, wear and tear, or mechanical damage to components such as the strap/bracelet, case, crown, bezel, crystal, ornaments and strap attaching portion, or abrasion of external coatings.

What is engraving?

Engraving is the process of etching an inscription on the case back of the watch or on an attached plate. The engraving is performed with a Cormak laser engraving machine.

How do I request engraving on the watch?

Once you enter the cart, you'll find the engraving option available. You will find detailed step-by-step information under Engraving for free.

How long does it take to engrave a watch?

If you choose the engraving option, the lead time may be extended by 1-3 working days, depending on the number of orders.

What does the "inscription on a metal plate" mean?

If engraving on the case back is not possible, we provide an alternative by offering engraving on a decorative metal plate measuring approximately 5x10 cm, which is included with your order.

What are the conditions for making an engraving?

For orders with engraving service, prepayment is required. Please note that watches with engraving are not eligible for return or exchange. You can find all the terms and conditions related to watch engraving under Engraving for free.

Why can't I see the option to engrave the watch?

If you don't see the option to engrave the watch when adding it to your cart, it means that we do not offer engraving for that particular watch due to technical reasons.

Can I return the engraved product?

Engraved watches are non-returnable and non-exchangeable. Nevertheless, they still retain their warranty coverage.

How can I order a bracelet adjustment?

Once you add the watch to your cart, you'll have the option to shorten the bracelet. Please note that this service is only available for selected products.
