Our e-shop will send the goods within three days if all items in the shopping cart are available immediately, but if products are included which define specific delivery time (e.g., item available in 15 days), then the entire order will be sent within three days from the date of availability of the product which has the longest delivery time.
 
The maximum delivery period cannot be longer than 30 days.

8. Warranty
 
If our e-shop is held responsible for actual defects or lack of agreed properties of goods the buyer is entitled at his own choice: 1) to require, without expense, to repair or replace the product with another, unless such action is impossible or requires disproportionate costs, 2) to price reduction, 3) to withdraw from the contract, unless the defect is insignificant. Agreed properties of a good are those stipulated in writing. These rights of the buyer shall be barred after two years.
 
Our e-shop provides a commercial warranty and free repair through an external partner.
 
The commercial warranty includes a free repair of the product for damage caused by normal use. It does not include, however, damages related to improper handling, force majeure or other factors.

The warranty does not apply if the product is repaired by a non-authorized technician, outside the e-shop or its affiliates.
 
 
9. Right to withdraw
 
The consumer has the right to withdraw from the contract, according to the law.

No refund is made for additional delivery costs, such as payment by delivery.
 
The customer bears responsibility for the reduction of the product value in case he/she made use of the product that was not necessary regarding the characteristics, the functioning and the nature of the products. The condition of the product should allow its resale without any repair. Also, the condition of the packing should be undamaged to be suitable for resale.
 
Particularly, as regards the buy of jewel or watch, use should be limited to few minutes try indoors. No contact is allowed of the product with the sun, water or acidic components or sweat, whereas any protective element of the good such as gelatin or security films must be maintained.
