3. Purchase of goods, execution of the order

3.1 An order of a product on this web site is considered as an offer relating to the purchase of such product in accordance with the present terms & conditions of sale & delivery.

3.2 Once the order has been placed, a message will be sent to your email address, confirming that we have taken note of your order.  We would however draw your attention to the fact that this message in no way signifies that your order is accepted, as all orders are subject to the approval of the company Montres Henri Duvoisin Sarl who, prior to formal acceptation of your order, and to ensure the security of transactions and combat fraud, reserve the right to request further information formally proving your identity and your order.

Should such requests not be responded to within the given timeframe, the company Montres Henri Duvoisin Sarl reserves the right to cancel your order.

3.3 Should the products ordered not be available, you will be informed of this situation by email.  You will then have the option of waiting until the products become available again, or of cancelling your order.

3.4 Acceptation of your order will be confirmed by sending you a confirmation of order by email.  This confirmation is then a legally binding contract between the two parties.

3.5 This contract concerns solely the products for which we have confirmed delivery in the above-mentioned confirmation of order.  We are in no way obliged to deliver any other products potentially being part of your order, unless delivery of these products has been confirmed by a separate order confirmation.

 

4. Prices & payment

4.1 The price of a product corresponds to the respective data as indicated on the web site, with the exception of obvious errors.  VAT (at the current rate) is included in the indicated prices.  Delivery costs are also included in the prices.  Prior to dispatch of the order, the unit prices, including delivery costs, are once again indicated separately, as is the total price.

4.2 Although all possible steps are taken to ensure the accuracy of our web site, it is not impossible that certain prices published may be incorrect. Generally speaking, a check of the exactness of all prices is carried out as part of the dispatching process.  Should the current price of an article be lower than the quoted price, the lower price will be the amount billed at the time of delivery of the product.  Should the current price be higher than that indicated on the web site, we will either contact you prior to dispatch of the product, or we will reject your order, but will of course inform you of this situation.

4.3 We are under no obligation to deliver a product at an erroneous price (lower price), if the mistake in the price is obvious and is such that you could easily have detected the fact that the quoted price was incorrect, even if we have already sent you a confirmation of order indicating the incorrect price.

4.4 Payment can be made as described in the order process.  The amount due will be indicated on the confirmation of order.  Payment must be made prior to dispatch of the products.  In case of payment by credit card, the amount will be debited to your bank account before delivery of the goods.  We reserve the right to delay delivery of the goods until we have received full payment of the ordered products.

4.5 All credit card holders are subject to a validity control, carried out by the issuer of the card who, in addition, must authorise the card holder to use the card.  The personal data of the credit card holder, necessary for these controls, can be passed on to other parties.  Should the issuer of the credit card refuse to authorise payment, the delay or non-delivery of the order cannot be attributed to us.

4.6 Should the total amount of the order exceed the amount normally granted by credit card issuers, a first instalment, indicated on the web site, can be paid by credit card and is considered as a preliminary order.  In the same way as an order, this type of preliminary order is considered as an offer relating to the purchase of a product in accordance with the present Terms & Conditions of Sale & Delivery.  The balance will be payable by bank transfer to Montres Henri Duvoisin Sarl according to the terms indicated in the order confirmation sent to you by email.  Payment of this balance is due before delivery of the products.

4.7 In the case of an order of a bespoke article, payment of a first amount defined by the company Montres Henri Duvoisin Sarl and covering the costs relating to the realization of the initial project, must be made before the initial project is carried out.  Under no circumstances is this amount refundable.  Should a definitive order be placed for this bespoke article, the pre-paid amount will be deducted from the final total.  The estimated total cost will be specified in the quotation supplied by the company Montres Henri Duvoisin Sarl.  Payment of an amount equivalent to at least 50% of the total estimated cost is required to validate the order confirmation.  The remainder of the final total amount must be paid to Montres Henri Duvoisin Sarl before delivery of the product.

 

5. Delivery

5.1 You will be informed of the delivery date by means of a delivery note.

5.2 The delivery address is that indicated on the order confirmation.  For practical reasons it is sometimes preferable to ship several products from the same order at different times (split delivery).  Should this be the case, it will be mentioned in the delivery note.

5.3 Should we be unable to respect the defined delivery date, you will immediately be contacted, and informed of the new delivery date.

 

6. Transfer of risks & ownership

6.1 The product becomes your property as soon as payment of the total purchase price has been made or the product delivered – whichever takes place first.  We are entitled to demand the return of products at any time before the transfer of property, should you infringe the present Terms & Conditions of Sale & Delivery.

6.2 Transfer of risks is effective at the time of delivery.  Risks, as defined by the present conditions, relate to the responsibility in case of damage to the product or damage caused by the use, handling or storage of the said product.

 

7. Right of retraction

7.1 You are entitled to cancel your declaration of contract (order) within 10 days, either in writing (e.g. letter, email) or by returning the goods to us, without being obliged to give any reason for this cancellation.  The allotted time (10 days) commences on receipt of the goods.  In order that the retraction time be respected, simply send the retraction or the goods within the indicated time. The retraction should be addressed to Montres Henri Duvoisin Sarl, POB 135, Grand rue 16a, CH-2054 Chézard-Saint-Martin, Switzerland.  Telephone : +41 32 853 12 07, fax : +41 32853 51 85, email : [email protected]

7.2 If the retraction has been carried out correctly, we will refund the price you have paid,(except for personalized or bespoke articles), on condition that the goods arrive at the company Montres Henri Duvoisin Sarl unused and in their original condition.  Any costs incurred in returning the goods are for your account, insofar as the articles delivered correspond to the products ordered.

7.3 As far as bespoke products and personalized articles are concerned, Montres Henri Duvoisin Sarl reserves the right, on a case-by-case basis, to choose to grant a right of retraction, and also to fix the refundable amount.

8.4 This guarantee in no way limits the subsequent claims under guarantee nor the right to reductions, retractions, damages and interest to which the purchaser is legally entitled.

 

Responsibility

9.1 The company Montres Henri Duvoisin Sarl will assume responsibility for damages and interest in connection with the guarantee or other legal bases – in particular the rights concerning unlawful actions, errors in connection with the organisation, errors which may have occurred on conclusion of the contract or any potential rights relating to other errors resulting from the violation of an obligation – only if it is proven that the company Montres Henri Duvoisin Sarl or its representatives have committed a punishable offence or serious negligence, or if it is proved that the damage is related to the product liability law.  The exclusion of liability for simple negligence is not valid for damages regarding life-threatening injuries, physical injury or health problems; equally in case of fraudulent concealment of defects.  In the above-mentioned cases, the company Montres Henri Duvoisin Sarl also accepts responsibility for minor acts of negligence caused by its legal representatives or by its assistants,
