Any watch 20 years old or older may not meet the original factory specifications for water resistance, and timekeeping, they should not be immersed or water damage may occur.
We have in house watchmakers and any warranty given in the auction will void if another watchmaker or individual opens the watch. No returns will be accepted if an unauthorized individual opens or modifies the watch in any manner.

Watch condition terms
To further explain our grading we offer the following definitions for our watch conditions we hope this clarifies the terms for the public and watch community.
Ultra Mint or New Old Stock (NOS) or New: Never sold to the public, may be virtually without flaw but may show minor signs of shop wear from being placed in and out of showcase. If original box is present box may show dings or minor tears.
Mint or Like New: Excellent condition, almost like new may have been carried a few times and put away in safe deposit box or drawer may have finish defects. Box if present may show marring.
Minty: Very Good to excellent condition, one (1) the three (3) of the dial movement or case must being close to new condition. One (1)or two (2) of the following (dial movement or case) may have imperfections such as faint hairlines, minor brass on stem area, minor screwdriver marks to movement or case back, wear on bands normal scratching associated with normal wear, tool marks on back from case-backs being removed, enlarge images. Watch must run and look good. Box and papers booklets or tags may or may not be present and may be in any condition.
Good (Not Minty): Runs, a good carrying watch may have some wear or brassing on case or band, but dial and movement are presentable. A watch you would be proud to carry. Case and band may be in any condition enlarge photographs
Fair (Far from Minty): May or may not run, very salvageable, will clean up nice with a standard cleaning and minor part replacement.
Poor (the anti Minty): Rough, good parts watch, may need heavy restoration to run correctly.
To Fix, 2 Fix, for Parts, 4 Parts: This watch may or may not have all its parts and may or may not run. Expect it to only have only what is photographed and though it may tick when wound or rocked do not expect it to run.
We have not defined a term for watches that are total junk and only used for parts, this term is kind of an enigma.

Items are generally double boxed. Your shipping costs should not exceed eBay's calculated amount listed in the auction under the bid price.
Items or combined items in excess of $1000.00 will have to be shipped express mail within the USA.
eBay's shipping calculators do not always accurately reflect dimensional weight of packages. The proper shipping can be found in the shipping calculator in the auction. Combining items may also change shipping box size. Check for accurate shipping quotes before you bid.
All USPS shipping will require signature delivery if the package cost exceeds $250.00. The cost will be reflected in the shipping and handling stated in auction.

Shipping is calculated with eBay's shipping calculators and includes the handling fee.
When calculating your shipping please take note of the "estimated packaging size" in the auction as some items will be assessed a heavier weight by the USPS or UPS based on the exterior dimensions of the package. We use clean boxes and pack with bubble and peanuts so your item arrives safe and intact. This boxing may increase the size of the package to reflect what seems to be greater shipping. Take the size of the package into consideration with your calculations.
