For any watch valued at $1,000 or more that does not carry a manufacturer’s warranty, GemmaByWPD may, at our discretion, offer a one-year warranty to the buyer of the watch. Our warranty shall only extend to the initial buyer of the watch. The warranty will provide that the item is free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for 12 months from the date of sale. The warranty covers the repair of the watch and, if repair is not feasible, replacement of the watch or a refund, as determined by GemmaByWPD in its sole and absolute discretion.
The GemmaByWPD warranty “covers the mechanics and movement of watches” and excludes monetary loss. The warranty does not cover accidents, theft, loss, mistreatment, improper use, physical abuse, wear and tear from normal use, or damage resulting from tampering with the product, water or moisture exposure, or other physical damage. Damage resulting from or that occurs due to having the item serviced or modified by a third party renders the warranty null and void. The warranty does not cover fraudulent or counterfeit items. This warranty and the remedies set forth herein are exclusive and in lieu of all other warranties (including any original manufacturer’s warranties, which are hereby expressly disclaimed), remedies, and conditions, whether oral or written, expressed or implied.
