Less package, more watch. It is very simple flat box. This helps to reduce the overall price.

Each watch has one year warranty from the date of shipping. A digital warranty card will be sent to your email. For more details, please see the warranty page.

SHIPPING FEE

Free worldwide shipping.

DUTIES AND TAXES OUTSIDE CANADA

WHY NOT KICKSTARTER

Although Kickstarter's fee is reasonable, that will still cause the price to rise by around 10%. I want my watches to be as affordable as possible. Moreover, Shopify (this website is powered by Shopify) offers great discounts in shipping. That is why I can offer free worldwide shipping.
