Here is some additional shipping information that
you may find useful when shipping fragile items such as watches or
When watches are sent to us, it is usually because they are
in need of repair or general maintenance. Carefully packing your
watch for shipment prevents a simple repair from turning into a
complex repair. DON'T over pack or stuff your box so tight with
fill material. When you do this, any outside force on the box is
directly transmitted to the watch inside of the box. This can cause
damage to delicate balance staffs should the package get dropped or
thrown during shipment.
ALLOW BREATHING ROOM.
Wrap your watch in small bubble wrap and place inside a box that
allows at least 3 to 4 inches around the watch. Now use light
peanut foam fill material to surround the watch. Don't pack to
tight. Allow the watch to "Float" inside the box. This way, should
the box get dropped, the watch will be able to move a small amount
while the packing material absorbs the impact, thus allowing the
watch to gently move while the impact is dissipated. This is the
old "Egg In The Box" trick.
This is the best way to ship your watch and is also the least
expensive. You can also insure priority mail for any amount you
need and you can also purchase tracking numbers for the package.
The Post Office supplies boxes and tape free of charge.
Express Mail is available and comes with automatic insurance
of $100.00. Additional insurance coverage is available along with
tracking numbers. We will NOT ship watches using UPS or FedEx.
Watches are classified as jewelry, therefore, UPS and FedEx will not
