Customer satisfaction is paramount for The Hour Glass and we endeavor to ensure you are satisfied with your order. You may return your order to us for a refund of the original amount paid to us, if the watch is found with manufacturing defect(s) upon your receipt, and if the watch meets our quality assessment when received by us. We shall determine the merits of any returns at our sole discretion.
To return an item please send an email to customer firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate your invoice number. A Customer Service representative will get in touch with you and send a Return Request Form for your completion. If the returns fulfil our assessment criteria, you will then be provided with an authorisation number.
To apply for a refund, please initiate a request for an authorisation number within 7 days of receiving the order and ship the product to us within 3 days of the authorisation number being issued. Products must be returned with the original invoice shipped together with the product(s). The product(s) are to be in an unused state and in brand-new condition, with all original shipping and product packaging, protective materials, and tags in place.
The Hour Glass will not accept any returns if the product shows signs of wear, or has been used or altered from its original condition in any way, or if the 7-day returns authorisation window or the 3-day shipping window has passed.
If your order is found to have manufacturing defect(s) through our quality assessment, we shall return the amount paid by you in full through the same debit or credit card you had used to pay. Alternatively, we may ship a new replacement watch. In both cases, the cost of the returns shipping will be borne by us. Please note that refunds can take up to 10 working days to show on your account due to varying processing times between payment providers.
If your returns do not meet our quality assessment, we shall ship the same watch(es) which you have returned, back to the same shipping address as your original order. We will also send an invoice for the returns shipping fee.

To facilitate delivery of your order directly to the shipping address you provide during the checkout process, your orders will be shipped on “Customs Duties and Taxes paid by sender” basis via FedEx. As part of the purchase process, you agree that we will first collect the estimated sum of Custom Duties and Taxes and customs fees at point of checkout, and FedEx will pay this on your behalf to the customs of the destination country.
You will see this amount as the “Estimated Customs Duties and Taxes / Fees” line on the checkout page. We calculate this by entering the Harmonised System (HS) code we deem most appropriate for your order, into the FedEx Global Trade Manager tool, and displaying the sum of applicable customs duties and taxes, and customs fees. The actual amount payable to the customs may differ, and should the amount we collect from you during checkout exceeds the actual payable amount, and you agree that no refunds shall be provided to you.
However, in the rare occasions where buyers have to pay additional import duty or other taxes, fees or charges applied by customs or other authorities in the country of receipt, you must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the order. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges. If you are unsure about whether these charges might apply to your order, you should contact your local tax or customs office for further information.
Your watch is covered under a 2-year international warranty direct from manufacture. Warranty documents can be found within the watch box stamped with The Hour Glass as the authorized retailer. Should your watch require any servicing, you may bring it to any Nomos Glashütte service centers worldwide. You may refer the official NOMOS Glashütte website or contact us should you require more details.
For purchases made on this online pop-up store (https://nomosreddot.thehourglass.com), The Hour Glass will extend 1 additional year of local warranty in addition to the 2-year international warranty provided by Nomos Glashütte. Should your watch require servicing on the third year, you may email your request to email@example.com specifying your invoice number. Thereafter, you will be required to fill up a warranty authorization form, and will be provided with a warranty authorization number, if found to be valid. Details including arrangements for pickup to our servicing location will be advised via email.
The Hour Glass has full discretion on fulfilling this additional 1-year warranty, and is subjected to our quality checks that the watch has not been damaged.
