Shipping and handling
This watch will be safely packed and shipped
using US Postal Service Flat rate box with tracking number.
Expected delivery is normally within 7 days from
date of payment. I ship in 24 hours from
clearance of funds and send an email with tracking number.
International shipping: Due to regular priority mail packages sometimes being held up at customs, I advise Express shipping. Unlike priority, there is a tracking number and insurance available, and although it is more expensive, it is far more reliable. If you choose regular priority mail, I cannot be held responsible for shipping problems. Thank you.

behind my description, I can't guarantee continued time accuracy and ongoing repair after they leave my shop. I am not a watchmaker, merely a collector. I briefly check the mechanisms and cases for state of repair, and check time accuracy over 24 hours. Photos are considered a part of the description.
