Condition & Accuracy:

  • Each watch will come as described.  As most of our pieces are vintage, please expect light wear & patina from usage.  If there are any glaring marks, scarring, or damage to the piece, we will disclose this in the item description and photographs.  Our intention is to offer 100% original products and movements.  One exception is that our pocket watches have been converted from original cases to new custom cases to showcase these on your wrist.  We can not be responsible for every part in the watch being original as most of our items we sell are unique vintage or rare antiques.  Many of these are 50-100 years old while still being in great working condition.  Please read the description very carefully as we state which parts are new which are original to the best of our knowledge.  We DO NOT sell any Replica/Fake wristwatches.  Please read each item description and examine all product images carefully prior to purchase. 

  • Most of our pieces run from a manual winding or automatic movement, which are generally not as accurate as modern quartz.  We check all of our pieces to ensure they are running accurately and within acceptable time loss/gain limits before putting them up for sale.  Again, regular maintenance and care is recommended after purchase to ensure the accuracy and longevity of your timepiece.

Shipping & Handling:

  • We will generally ship all of our products via Federal Express within 5 Business Days of purchase.  

  • We welcome International sales.  International customers outside of US are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries.  Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country.  These fees are not part of shipping and are not included in any Dark Triumph charges.  The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country.  Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be.  Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information.  When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.  All international orders will have full value declared on customs forms - no exceptions.
