Frequently asked questions

Do I have to pay tax on the watches I order?

The prices displayed on our website include 20% value added tax, which is applicable for customers in the UK and the European Union. If you live outside the UK or the EU, this tax will be deducted when you pay for your order.

I’ve received a request to pay import taxes. What does this mean?

Whilst we offer free shipping for orders over £60, you may still be liable for local import taxes in your home country. These fees differ depending on the value of your purchase and the delivery location so we recommend checking with your local customs office before ordering.

Do the watches come with guarantees or warranties?

All the watches we sell come with guarantees or warranties provided by the manufacturer. Most of these cover a period of one year from the day the watch is purchased from Dezeen Watch Store, but check the “Specifications” text for more details.

What happens if I buy a watch and it is damaged or doesn’t work?

If your watch is defective when you receive it, it will be replaced or repaired right away. If it subsequently develops a fault within the period of the manufacturer’s warranty, and the fault is covered by the warranty, then it will be repaired or replaced directly by the manufacturer. Your faulty watch can not be sent back to us and all matters must be dealt with the manufacturer. Please refer to our terms and conditions or contact us if you have any further questions.

What happens if the watch battery has stopped working?

Please note that batteries supplied with watches are installed at the factory to check the watch is working and, due to time spent in warehousing and shipping, may be partially run down by the time of sale.

Batteries are therefore not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. If your watch stops working you should in the first instance take it to a specialist watch shop or repairer to have a new battery fitted. Neither Dezeen Watch Store nor the manufacturer can be held liable for the cost of replacing the battery.
