Terms & Conditions
All timepieces purchased from Contrapante must be paid for using certified funds, such as Certified (Bank) Check or Wire Transfer. Payment must be received in full within 5 Business Days of completing online purchase.
Every one of our curated pieces comes with a 5-day inspection period. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your timepiece, simply ship the watch back to us within 5 business days and we will refund the full payment price. Returns must be sent overnight or by priority international delivery, fully insured and paid for by the customer. Watches returned must be in the same condition as initially shipped.
Condition & Accuracy
Each timepiece will come as described. As most of our pieces are pre-owned, please expect light wear from usage. If there are any glaring signs of wear, defects, or damage to the piece, we will disclose this in the item description and accompanying hi-resolution images. Please read each item description and examine all product images carefully prior to purchase.
The majority of our timepieces run from manual winding or automatic movements, which are generally not as accurate as modern quartz. All of our timepieces have been inspected and vetted by a professional watchmaker prior to listing, and are checked to ensure they are running accurately and within acceptable time loss/gain limits. Regular maintenance and care is recommended after purchase to ensure the accuracy and longevity of your timepiece.
