Article 1. Documentation

1.1. All the watches are provided with a digital certificate (the Watchfid-ID), that will be uploaded on the Buyer’s protected and anonymous digital wallet, and a Watchfid Certification Report, which purpose is to determine whether the constituent parts of the watch are conform to the model reference /period or not, and to value their condition and importance.

Article 2. Paperwork

2.1. If the products are sold with paperwork, the age of the product is calculated from the date given on the paperwork.

2.2. If the products are sold without paperwork, it can be difficult for us to calculate the age of the products, especially for vintage products.

We make no representation or warranty in relation to the accuracy of the age of the products.

Article 3. Payment
