Clocks purchased from our store can be returned within 30 days, as long as a Return Authorization is obtained and the return is accompanied with the original packing materials and sales receipt. Clocks must be returned in a new, re-saleable condition. A full refund will be given, minus the original shipping costs (even though the item was sold with Free Shipping, the cost of that shipping will be deducted). Customer is responsible for return shipping. We will send you a UPS return shipping label, via email. A UPS driver can pick up the item at your door or you can drop off the package at your nearest UPS drop location. Upon receipt of the returned item, we will refund your purchase price, minus the cost of return shipping. All international sales are final.
If the shipping box is damaged, note that there may be damage to the contents on the shipping slip (or notify your shipping carrier). Keep the packing materials for inspection by the shipping company. If the clock is damaged, make a damage claim to the shipping company within 10 days.
If the reason for your return is related to a warranty issue, the manufacturer will provide warranty service. Some manufacturers' require that the clock be returned to them for warranty service. Other manufacturers' will ask that you bring your clock into a local, factory-authorized warranty service center (like a local clock shop). We will help facilitate your warranty service. The best thing to do is email or call us and we will be happy to help. Many issues are easily resolved over the telephone, as some clocks will need minor adjustments done, after shipping them. If your problem cannot be resolved over the telephone, we will act as your liaison with the manufacturer and assist you with your warranty claim.
Non-Warranty Set-up and Adjustments of Mechanical Clocks
Some mechanical clocks may need some adjustments, after shipping. As your selling retailer, we will provide telephone support, if adjustments are needed with your clock. We are here to help you with trouble-shooting and to assist with determining, if your clock has a warranty issue or if it is merely out-of-adjustment. In some cases, we may arrange for a clock professional, to provide in-home service. If a clock is out-of-adjustment, this does not necessarily mean, that there is a defect in the clock. If there is no defect, the manufacturer's warranty does not apply. If a clock is returned, due to a defect and the issue is merely an adjustment issue, customer is responsible for a re-stocking fee, equivalent to the original costs of shipping the item and the return shipping costs. These shipping costs will be deducted from the refund amount.

Warranty Coverage Periods
Mechanical, key-wound or weight-driven clocks are generally covered under a 2-year warranty. Clocks made by Hermle have the longest warranty--their mechanical clocks are covered for three years!
Quartz (or battery-operated) clocks are generally covered under a one-year warranty.
Clocks, which have a different warranty period, will have the warranty information added to clock's product description.
CLOCK REPAIR GUARANTEE
If you bring your older clock to our shop for repair, we will overhaul the clock movement and essentially restore it to a similar condition it was in, when it was brand new. Therefore, we guarantee it for two years, which is the typical warranty period for a new clock. Here are the terms of this repair guarantee:
Clock movements fully restored by us, with movement overhaul, have a 2-year guarantee. If your clock should fail to perform, within this warranty period, we will (at our option) re-service your clock, apply previous repair charges towards a more expensive repair option (not previously performed, with the original intent to save you money), apply the cost of your repair towards the price of a new movement (if there is one available), or refund your money. All warranty service, under this repair guarantee, is valid only in our repair facility. Shipping expenses to and from our repair facility will be at the customer's expense. We do not guarantee that your clock will keep perfect time. We do not guarantee any clock that has wooden gears or movement plates. No guarantee for simple oiling and adjustment. The usual exclusions apply, such as damage caused to the clock by negligent acts of the owner or by Acts of God. Exclusions include, but are not limited to escapement damage (caused by moving the clock around with the pendulum attached), clocks not kept in a climate-controlled environment, damage caused by moving clock hands backwards (applicable only to antique clocks and cuckoo clocks), and evidence of improper oiling or tampering to the work performed by our repair shop.
