Returns & exchanges policy

At Watch.co.uk we do our utmost best to offer you a good shopping experience. If by chance - for whatever reason - you are not entirely satisfied with the product you have purchased, you can return it - free of charge - from the UK and Ireland within 30 days after receipt.

You can use our Return your parcel service for the free return of the ordered products. Look below for conditions.

If you do not wish to make use of this free service offered by us, you are in principle responsible for the payment of the direct costs of returning the product, unless we have indicated in advance that you do not have to bear these costs. These regulations exist independently and they don't restrict the right to cancel.
