Watch Repair + 5 Year Warranty
The warranty included with this repair guarantees that: Any/all costs (parts, labor, shipping, etc.) necessary to remedy functionality and/or timekeeping-accuracy issues that arise during the course of “normal wear/usage” will be paid for by The Watch Buyers Group for the duration of the stated warranty period. This warranty excludes physical damage, water damage, and failure of exterior components such as the winding crown or bracelet. A warranty is not an insurance policy and this warranty is therefore void upon the occurrence of impact.
