2.4 Prices and payment

Products and prices stated in the webstore are deemed to constitute offers. However, these offers are always subject to deliver inability or incorrect price quotations, both of which lead to contract cancellation. A contract shall be deemed concluded as soon as an order has been placed by the customer in our webstore, by telephone or e-mail. Customers are informed of their order placement by means of an automatically generated order confirmation that is sent to the e-mail address provided by the customer. The receipt of the automatically generated order confirmation does not constitute a commitment that the payment watch will be delivered. It solely notifies the customer that the placed order was received by the webstore and a contract was therefore concluded under condition of deliverability and correct price quotation.

2.4.1 All prices are inclusive of VAT plus shipping costs. The prices valid at the time the order is received by us shall apply. For orders shipped to an address outside the EEU, United Kingdom, Liechtenstein and Switzerland, import duties and taxes may be charged. These fees vary from country to country.

We refer you to them for further information and the assertion of revocation, information, and other rights of data subjects.

Please refer to the general terms and conditions and the data protection information of the payment service providers.

However, you help us to be able to assert our own claims against the carrier or the transport insurance.

The revocation period shall be fourteen days from the day on which you or a third party named by you who is not the carrier have or have taken possession of the last goods. In order to exercise your right of revocation, you must also return us the provided mandatory «Return Form Swiss Military watch» to revoke this agreement.

Consequences of revocation

If you revoke this agreement, we shall reimburse you immediately and no later than fourteen days from the date on which we received notice of your revocation of this agreement for all payments we have received from you, including delivery charges (other than additional charges arising from your choice of a method of delivery other than the cheapest standard delivery offered by us). We will use the same means of payment used by you in the original transaction for such refund, unless expressly agreed otherwise with you and in no event will you be charged for such refund. We may refuse to refund until we have received the payment watch back or until you have provided evidence that you have returned the payment watch, whichever is earlier.
