Terms and Policies
Terms of Sale (US Orders)
Our used watches have a 90 day "good will" warranty covering the functions and the internal mechanics of the watch. We believe this gives plenty of time to realize any problem we may have missed beyond timing the watch on our timing machine. We like to keep our used watches priced competitively and the cost of warranting them for longer would result in higher prices...for a service most people don't ever use.
For your comfort, an optional one-year warranty is available on these pieces and is figured on an individual basis. Let us know if you would like this option.
The bezel insert (the numbered part of the bezel) is aftermarket, installed in the original Rolex bezel. It is a thin piece of anodized aluminum that is designed to wear out and be replaced over time. They are about $200 from Rolex. Rolex will only replace the insert if you send the watch in for a full overhaul and will only install the original color that was on the watch when it was produced.
Aftermarket bezel inserts are cheaper ($25-50) and are frequently installed between regular overhauls and by those who wish to have something other than the original color. There is nothing nefarious about using an aftermarket insert, but if you send the watch to Rolex, they will remove the aftermarket insert and charge you for an original bezel insert.
