4. Our Products
4.1 All of our watches are originally supplied and purchased from authorised retailers for each brand, and through our reputable network of wholesalers, traders and the general public. As such, we are obliged to sell our Products categorised as follows;
- Un-worn- These watches have been purchased by the original purchaser, and subsequently sold to us as unwanted items that have never been worn.
- Ex-display- These watches may have been used as display, exhibition or show items before they came to us, therefore may or may not have relevant manufacturer applied seals and stickers in place.
- Preowned- These watches have been previously purchased new and have been used by the purchaser, before being subsequently purchased by us.
- Bespoke/ Custom- Any watch or watch part that has been modified or altered in any way by us, for example diamond setting and personalisation.
4.1 The images of the Products on our site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the colours accurately reflect the colour of the Products. Your Products may vary slightly from those images. Further, as Products sold are unworn or pre-owned (as described above), we cannot guarantee that they will match our pictures exactly.
4.2 All sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements have been taken directly from the manufactures' specification; however these may vary slightly due to the pre-owned nature of the Products.
4.3 The packaging of the Products may vary from that shown on the images on our site.
4.4 Although we warrant that the Products will, at the time of delivery, correspond to the description given by us, all Products we sell are of a technical nature and it is not practical to publish detailed specifications of all the Products. All images, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising are for the sole purpose of giving an approximate description of the Products. Full technical details are available from the original manufacturer's brochures and websites, these can change however if the watch has been modified/customised from original specification.
4.5 Payment of goods, either partial or in full, verifies that you, the customer, is satisfied to the best of your knowledge with the quality of the Products and the suitability of the Products for your particular purpose.
4.6 Products are not sold on a trial basis.
4.7 Whilst we endeavour to ensure all images and specifications are correct at the time of publication, they do vary. As such we can accept no responsibility for incorrect images/information. If however you spot a mistake with an image or with product specification, please let us know.
4.8 Certain Products may not be sold with original warranties or box, and may come with small signs of display use.
4.9 The date of manufacture of a watch may differ from the date displayed on the original manufacturer’s warranty card. The date of our Time4Diamonds warranty may also differ from the date of manufacture. Please contact us for more information.
5. Our Contract With You
5.1 We are not authorised dealers for any of the manufacturers we feature on the site. We sell and have access to unworn, pre-owned or ex-display watches as described in Clause 4.1. We can also source un-worn watches, however these are not held in stock and will be sourced from our supplier. You will find a list of the Products that we currently have access to under the “In Stock” tab on our website.
5.2 Our online shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
When you place an online order, our system will ask you to read and accept our Terms and Conditions before the order process is complete. You will then receive a confirmation e-mail from us confirming your order. For purchases made in –store, or over the phone, payment for goods (either in full or partial payment) will confirm that you have read and subsequently accept our Terms and Conditions. Full Terms and Conditions can be found on our website at https://www.time4diamonds.com/terms-conditions.html
5.3 You must make full or partial payment of the Products at the same time that you place the order (as agreed between us). The Contract between us will only be formed with full or partial payment of the Products (once funds have cleared in the bank). This will be considered the start date for us to process your order, and for any services in the case of non-stock watches. This also applies to all bespoke and custom orders; any delays in payment will result in possible delays in delivering the customer order.
5.4 In all cases we must receive full and cleared funds prior to despatch of the Products (see Clause 7 for accepted ‘Payment Methods’).
5.5 For all Products ordered, outstanding balance payments must be received within 14 days of your item being ready for dispatch. Failure to do so will result in you losing any deposit and your order being cancelled.
5.6 Orders can be accepted when being paid for by any major credit or debit card; there will be an additional transaction charge for payments made using credit cards (see Clause 7) and this will be listed at the time of payment.
5.7 Your order will only be processed once authorisation of your credit card has been properly received. For security reasons we will require for any transaction over 5000 GBP to be supported by one form of identification and one form of proof of address, clearly showing your full name and address, via fax or scanned email. Failure to provide these documents will result in your order being delayed and possibly cancelled.
5.8 Once your order has been completed we will inform of the despatch details via a despatch email.
5.9 If we are unable to fulfil a customer request, for example because that particular product is not in stock or no longer available, or due to an error in the price on our site as referred to in Clause 6.2, we will inform you of this by e-mail as soon as we are aware, and will not process your order unless you direct us otherwise. If we have already received full or part payment for the Products we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.
6. Price of Products
6.1 The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site at the time you submit your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system.

Please note, our prices may change at any time, even after an order has been placed. We reserve the right to change our prices for any reason that may affect the cost of the Products to us, for example a change in the manufacturers retail price of the Products, right up until the point of despatch. If you have placed an order with us and there is a change in the price of the Products, we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know. We will give you the option of continuing with the order at the new price, or cancelling the order. If we are not able to contact you regarding the error either by email or phone within 5 days, and the price of the Products and therefore your order has increased, we will consider the order cancelled until we speak to you. We will notify you by email of the cancellation, and return any funds already paid to you within 14 days of the date we cancel the order
6.3 Our site contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. In the event that a product is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error or error in pricing information from our suppliers, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders based on the incorrect price whether or not the order has been confirmed. If the correct price of the Products is in fact lower than the price detailed on the website or in your order, we will charge the lower amount and proceed with the order. If the correct price of the Products is higher than that advertised on the website or in your order, we will contact you as soon as possible on discovering the error and give you the option of either continuing with the order at the correct higher price, or cancelling the order. If we are not able to contact you regarding the error either by email or phone within 5 days, we will consider the order cancelled until we speak to you. We will notify you by email of the cancellation, and return any funds already paid to you within 14 days of the date we cancel the order.

This is subject to there needing to be no alterations to the watch and no complications with the order, and also on the receipt of any documentation that the company requires from the customers before the watch is released, ie ID, proof of address etc. The release of a watch remains at all times at the discretion of the company

8.7 Although we remain responsible for the Product until it reaches the delivery destination, our financial responsibility and liability for the product or service ends once we hand over the package to the courier and provide you with the tracking number and airway bill for your package. It is the customers responsibility to ensure that all delivery instructions, including delivery address, are correct, and that someone of trust will be present at the delivery address to receive the delivery.

10.2 Any claims made against the Warranty, be that the manufacturers or that of Time 4 Diamonds DMCC Limited, is subject to inspection by a qualified watch maker.
10.3 If you are a consumer, a manufacturer's guarantee is in addition to, and does not affect, your legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from Citizens' Advice Consumer Service (www.adviceguide.org.uk) or your local Trading Standards office.
11. Our Warranties
11.1 All watches come with a Time 4 Diamonds DMCC Ltd 12 month warranty (the ‘Warranty’) from the date you receive the watch. This Warranty protects your watch against manufacturing and mechanical faults subject to the conditions within this Clause 11.
11.2 The Warranty does not apply to the following;
- Theft or loss of your watch,
- fair wear and tear;
- wilful damage, mishandling, abnormal storage or working conditions, accidents, negligence by you or by any third party;
- damage caused by failure to operate or use the Products in accordance with the manufacturers user instructions;
- any alteration or repair by you or by a third party who is not one of our authorised repairers and without our consent.
- wear of the watch strap, glass, clasp and cosmetic damage

11.3 If you are a consumer, this warranty is in addition to, and does not affect, your legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
11.4 The Warranty will be registered to you, the customers, postal address. To ensure the validity of the Warranty, please make sure that you inform us of the correct address of the recipient of the watch (if someone other than the buyer of the watch), and any change of contact details including name, address, telephone number and email address. Failure to do this will invalidate the Warranty if we have the wrong contact information and a claim is made.
11.5 If you make a valid claim against Our Warranty whilst it is still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, we reserve the right to request that you claim on the manufacturer’s warranty first.
11.6 Any watches that you have asked to be customised will automatically lose their manufacturer’s warranty as soon as customisation begins on the watch. Any warranty offered will therefore be with Time 4 Diamonds directly for a period of 12 months unless otherwise stated.
11.7 Warranty covers the mechanical parts of the watch and excludes damage by any form of water damage or misuse of the watch in any way. In the event your watch has been damaged by water, Time4Diamonds will offer to repair the watch at your expense if possible. It will also be your responsibility to deliver the watch to us in a timely manner to avoid further damage to the watch. We do not take any responsibility for the watch until such point as it is back in the Time4Diamonds office.
11.8 All watches needing a repair under Time 4 Diamonds warranty or guarantee will be void if the watch is opened or dismantled by a non-authorised Time 4 Diamonds Watchmaker.
11.9 In the event of a valid claim against your warranty, we will repair, replace or refund your watch at our sole discretion. We will attempt to give you an approximate time frame for this however this will be dependant on the nature of the work that needs to be undertaken or the timeframe needed to source replacement/part replacement.
11.10 We reserve the right to have the final decision on any claims against our Warranty. If there is a dispute we may contact an independent third party Watchmaker chosen by us to advise on the disputed issues, although we are not obliged to do so. Any reports given by the independent Watchmaker will be binding between all parties. Please note that any manufacturers recommendations which may conflict with our advice will be excluded for the purposes of our Warranty.
11.11 All service, repairs, parts and customisation to customers own watches carry a 12 month warranty, which will only apply to the parts, or work carried out. See clause 14 for more information on our servicing Terms.
11.12 When a product is under guarantee, it must be returned with the warranty card, and will be the responsibility of the sender until such point as it is within the Time4Diamonds office. Postage and packaging costs will be the responsibility of the sender, including any relevant delivery insurance. Products sent with box and papers will not be sent back with the item upon being repaired. Do not send the original box and papers for your items; we will not take responsibility for their damage or loss.
11.13 For valid Warranty claims within the UK, we will not charge for posting and packaging of returning the Product back to you after any work has been completed. If you are based outside of the UK, we will charge for postage and packaging and all other taxes, fees and applied customs charges incurred for work carried out under warranty.
12. Faulty Products
12.1 Time4Diamonds are legally obliged to supply you with Products that conform to the Contract, and we aim to ensure all Products are sold with you, the customer, fully informed about the Products that you are purchasing including age, appearance, condition, any defects, manual and box authenticity and condition, relevant paperwork, and applicable warranties.
12.2 You must inspect Products as soon as possible after delivery to you, and contact us immediately to inform us if the Products are faulty or not as described upon delivery, or if you discover faults later after purchase (including Products purchased in store) up to a maximum period of 7 days. After this period all reports of faults will be inspected by us but relevant action will be discretionary dependant on the results of the inspection/testing.
12.3 You must ensure no further damage is done to the Products and return them to us within 7 days of contacting us to notify us of the fault. Products must be returned complete as of first delivery (including box, manuals, paperwork, links etc).
12.4 We will inspect and fully test the Products on receipt of them back to us. If we determine that the Products were faulty on delivery and not through any wilful neglect or mishandling of the Products, or any circumstances as detailed in 11.2, and the fault was not made aware to you at the time of purchase, and only in the event the fault is a manufacturing fault, we will offer you the below options;
12.5 We will firstly attempt to repair the Products. Given the nature of the Products we sell, we are however under no obligation to repair the Products if the cost to us is deemed unreasonable in line with the value of the Products on the Contract, or if repair is not possible.
12.6 If we are not able to repair the Products due to reasons stated in 12.5, we will offer to replace the Products. We are not however obliged to replace the Products if the cost to us is unreasonable given the value of the Products at the time of Contract, or if a suitable replacement is not possible to source.
12.7 In the event we are not able to repair or replace the Products, we will offer to refund you, the customer, with your full payment. Please note that we reserve the right to make a reasonable deduction from the refund for any loss or damage to paperwork, and less any amount considered reasonable by us for wear and tear through any customer use of the product before the fault was detected.
12.8 Although we will do our best to repair any faulty Products as soon as possible, it must be noted that repair may take many months dependant on the nature of the work and whether we need to source manufacturers parts etc. If the repair is likely to exceed 3 months, we will advise you, and you will be entitled to a refund.
12.9 Return postage and insurance of the faulty items will be the customer’s responsibility, and we recommend that all packages are fully insured to the full value of the enclosed items. We will not be held responsible for any loss or damage to the items whilst in transit to us, this will be considered the responsibility of the customer.
12.10 No refunds will be given in the event of bespoke or customised Products. In the case of these Products being faulty, we will endeavour to repair/replace the Products as per 16.5 and 16.6. Due to the nature of customised Products we cannot put an estimate on how long this may take. If the period of time for either repair/replacing exceeds 3 months, the situation will be reviewed and any further decisions or actions will be made at our discretion.
13.1 If you buy a Product online from us, you have a legal right to cancel your Contract and receive a full refund based from the date on which the Contract starts (the day we receive your payment and you sign the order confirmation, whichever comes last) until 14 days after you receive your item (the relevant period). This means that during this relevant period you can change your mind about the Products without giving any reasons. This cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the Products being delivered to you or the recipient. Please note, this cancellation right does not apply to Products purchased on-site, or bespoke/customised Products. If you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a product, you must email a member of our Sales Team within the specified cancellation period. You must take reasonable care of the Products at all times and the Products must remain in their original condition. Please note, we cannot offer exchange or refunds on sale items, or Products that have been customised/personalised to your requirements (customised watches, ring resizing, engraving etc).
13.2 Once we have agreed to cancel the order/purchase (in line with 13.1) you must return any Products to us along with all paperwork, manuals, boxes, links and warranties. Postage and packaging of the Products back to us is your responsibility, and we recommend that you insure all items for their full value. We will not be responsible for any damage or loss of Products in transit back to us. All Products must be packed appropriately to prevent damage.
13.3 Returned Products will be inspected by our servicing team before any refund is made to you. Deductions will be made for any damage to the Products due to unnecessary handling, and charges will apply for any subsequent work that is necessary to return the Products to their original condition. Deductions will also be made if packaging has been opened or damaged, or if any factory seals or stickers have been removed/damaged.
13.4 If the paperwork is found to be missing or damaged, we will make a deduction from your refund amount in line with the amount that the damage/loss has devalued the Products, or a max of 25%
13.5 Products must be returned to us no later than 7 days after we agree to a cancellation of your Contract. If you do not return the Products to us within a 7 day period, we reserve the right to void the cancellation policy.
13.6 Provided that the conditions of this Clause are met, we will refund you either in full or with the necessary deductions within 14days of receiving the Products back to us. We will refund you in the same manner that the original payment was made, unless agreed otherwise.
14.1 If you would like your watch serviced, repaired, or any other work carried out (such as link removal/addition or battery replacement), our highly skilled in-house Watchmaker will be happy to assess your watch and give you a highly competitive quote on the work needed.
14.2 Our Watchmaker will assess your watch on receipt into the workshop in order to determine the level of work required. This may involve a full investigation in which opening and dismantling the watch may be necessary; by giving the watch to us you are consenting to this being done. Please note, if your watch is covered by the Manufacturer’s Warranty, we reserve the right to return the watch to you and advise that you send it to the manufacturer instead.
14.3 Once we have determined the scope of the work required, we will contact you and provide you with a verbal and written quotation for the work. We will not start any work on the watch until we have had your acceptance of the quote (and therefore these Terms and Conditions) in writing, and your permission to proceed with the work.
14.4 In the circumstance that our Watchmaker gives a quotation for work before he is able to assess the watch, or carry out a full investigation, the quotation will be an estimate only, and this may alter once a full investigation has been carried out.
14.5 Although we do our best to carefully assess your watch on receipt to determine the nature and level of work required, we reserve the right to change the amount charged to account for any unforeseeable work, additional parts or increase in the cost of parts. We will contact you to inform you of any change in the cost of the work and to gain your consent. If you choose to have the watch returned to you before the completion of any work, we reserve the right to charge you for the work already undertaken. We may return the watch to you dismantled, and it will not be covered by our servicing warranty.
14.6 We reserve the right to refuse to carry out, or agree to carry out, any work on your watch for any reason, for example if we feel that the work requested will be detrimental to the watch in any way. In this circumstance we will contact you after our assessment of the watch and inform you.
14.7 We will give you an estimated time frame for completion of the work requested/needed on your watch at the time of quotation. Please note it is not always possible for us to provide you with a timeframe, and any timeframe given is an estimate only and may change at any time. On acceptance of the quotation you are acknowledging that the timeframe for work completed may extend to several months, especially true of occasions when replacement parts need to be ordered from the manufacturer. We will endeavour to keep you informed of any extension of timeframe.
14.8 Please inform us if you need the work completed in a specific timeframe, or for a particular date. Although we will always endeavour to get the work completed as soon as reasonably possible, this may affect our acceptance of the watch if we feel that we will not realistically be able to meet the deadline of completion.
14.9 The price you pay depends on the work that we carry out on your watch. We give our quotes in good faith, however we reserve the right at any time to change the cost of work required should we need to ( see 14.5). All quotes are excluding delivery charges.
14.10 To get an assessment and quotation for your watch, or to proceed with work already quoted, please deliver your watch to our Time4Diamonds offices at the address stated in Clause 1. Postage, packaging and insurance will be your responsibility and at your own cost. We advise that all packages are insured up to the full value of the goods inside; any loss or damage to the goods in transit will be your responsibility. Please ensure that your watch is packed appropriately to avoid damage during transit. You can also deliver, and collect, your watch in person from our offices with prior appointment. Please contact our Sales Team to arrange a convenient time.
14.11 Return postage and packaging of your watch after work has been completed is not included in the quotation for work, and will be at your own cost. Please ask for delivery charges at time of obtaining a quote from us. Please see Clause 8; Delivery (8.3-8.10), and Clause 9 International Delivery.
14.12 If you are based within the UK, and the work carried out is a valid claim against our Time4Diamonds warranty on a watch you purchased from us, we will not charge for the posting and packaging costs of returning the watch to you after any work has been completed. We will charge for postage, packaging, insurance and all other taxes, fees and charges applied by customs incurred for work carried out under warranty if you are based outside of the UK.
14.13 All servicing and repairs undertaken by us will receive a 12 month Time4Diamonds Servicing Warranty. This applies to the work that has been carried out only, and acts as a guarantee for that specific work completed or the part supplied. Any claims against the servicing warranty will require an assessment and potentially a full investigation by our Watchmaker before any claim can be validated. Warranties will not cover the following;
- theft or loss of your watch,
- fair wear and tear;
- wilful damage, mishandling, abnormal storage or working conditions, accidents, negligence by you or by any third party;
- damage caused by failure to operate or use the Products in accordance with the manufacturers user instructions;
- any alteration or repair by you or by a third party who is not one of our authorised repairers and without our consent.
- water damage or accidental damage
14.14 We reserve the right to have the final decision on any claims against our Servicing Warranty. If there is a dispute we may contact an independent third party Watchmaker chosen by us to advise on the disputed issues, although we are not obliged to do so. Any reports given by the independent Watchmaker will be binding between all parties. Please note that any manufacturer’s recommendations which may conflict with our advice will be excluded for the purposes of our Warranty.
