How will my watch be shipped?
Your watch will be shipped by insured shipping. This means the full purchase value of the watch will be insured from our door to your door. As the watch is delivered at your door, the shipper will ask you to sign for reception.
We mainly use Ferrari, Malca-Amit, or Brinks for your insured shipping. These are companies that are specialised in shipping valuable goods. They ship further with Fedex or DHL. The day of the shipping we will send you the shipper’s tracking code by email, so you can follow your parcel online and possibly give delivery instructions to your local Fedex or DHL agent.
How much does it cost to ship my watch?
The cost of the shipping is not included in the watch price. This cost varies depending on the value of your purchase and the country where we have to send it to. In general, the insured shipping charge is always higher if we have to ship outside of Europe rather than inside Europe, because when going outside of Europe, the parcel will have to pass by customs for export, which has a cost related to it. Within Europe the parcel doesn’t pass customs.
To give a general guideline, here is an overview of the groups of countries and prices per watch value and per group:
|Group||Countries||Up to 10.000 €||10.000 € - 20.000 €||20.000 € - 50.000 €|
|1||Belgium||70 €||95 €||140 €|
|2||Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Ireland, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden||95 €||125 €||180 €|
|3||Italy, Luxembourg, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia||130 €||150 €||200 €|
