Refund policy

Because pre-order watches are limited edition, high-cost goods for which deposits are necessary for production, pre-order deposits are non-refundable.

New stock and standard-production watches in original, unworn condition may be returned within seven days of receipt for a full refund to the original payment method.

Please note: special-order, customized and limited-production orders, including Collective collaborative watches, are not eligible for return.

If the item was marked as a gift when purchased, you’ll receive a Collective Shop gift credit for the value of your return.

  • Watches must be unused, unworn, and in the same condition that you received it
  • Returned watches must include all original packaging, with all stickers, hang tags, and any other accessories in place and intact
  • Any attempt to modify the watch – such as removing protective stickers, adjusting the strap or bracelet size/fit, or removing the strap or bracelet – will make it ineligible for return
  • Likewise, custom orders are not eligible for return

  • International customers who return an item will have any customs duties associated with their return deducted from their refund or credit
  • Collective Shop must authorize all returns. Any watches returned without our authorization will be ineligible for a refund or credit
  • Collective Shop must receive returned merchandise at our facility within seven days after a return is authorized
