Our guarantee

We provide a 1 year guarantee to cover the mechanical performance of our watches.

Even after your guarantee period expires, we are very happy to service watches bought from Black Bough. The industry recommends the servicing of mechanical watches every 3 to 5 years. Vintage watches should not be considered waterproof and for this reason the guarantee does not cover water ingress.
