Terms & Conditions


All timepieces purchased from Contrapante must be paid for using certified funds, such as Certified (Bank) Check or Wire Transfer.


Every one of our curated pieces comes with a 3-day inspection period. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your timepiece, simply ship the watch back to us within 3 business days and we will refund the full payment price. Contrapante purchases feature a 30 day warranty against defect and, in some cases, remainders of factory warranty when applicable.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. 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. Regular maintenance and care is recommended after purchase to ensure the accuracy and longevity of your timepiece.

Where Do Our Watches Come From?

We have cultivated a vast network of trusted suppliers, dealers and individuals worldwide who provide us with access to amazing wristwatches not generally available for direct purchase.

Most of our pieces are in hand, and will ship directly from our headquarters in New York City. In rare cases, watches will be shipped directly from one of our collaborating ateliers or dealers.

Shipping & Handling

All of our watches include complimentary insured shipping within the 50 States.*

We ship all orders with full value insurance.

International buyers are welcome! For overseas orders, shipment will be made through FedEx International Priority or similar means, with full value insurance and customs declarations. Please contact us prior to purchase for additional details.
