LIMITED TWO-YEAR WARRANTY (Global)

Your CATENA watch is warranted by CATENA S.A.* for a period of twenty-four(24) months from the date of purchase under the terms and conditions of this warranty. The international CATENA warranty covers material and manufacturing defects existing at the time of delivery of the purchased CATENA watch (“defects”). The warranty only comes into force if the warranty certificate is dated, fully and correctly completed and stamped by an official CATENA dealer (“valid warranty certificate”).

During the warranty period and by presenting the valid warranty certificate, you will have the right to have any defect repaired free of charge. In the event that repairs will not restore the normal conditions of use of your CATENA watch, CATENA S.A. guarantees its replacement by a CATENA watch of identical or similar characteristics.

The warranty for the replacement watch ends twenty-four (24) months after the date of purchase of the replaced watch.

This manufacturer’s warranty does not cover:

  • the life of the battery;
  • normal wear and tear and aging
    (e.g. alteration of the color and/or material or non-metallic straps and chains, such as leather, textile, rubber);
  • any damage on any part of the watch resulting from abnormal/abusive use, lack of care, negligence, accidents (knocks, dents, crushing, broken crystal, etc.), incorrect use of the watch and non-observance of the directions for use provided by CATENA S.A.;
  • the handling of the watch by non-authorized persons (e.g. for battery replacement, services or repairs) or the alteration of the watch from its original condition beyond CATENA S.A.’s control.

Any further claim against CATENA S.A., e.g. for damages additional to those described above in this warranty, is expressly excluded, excepting mandatory statutory rights the purchaser may have against the manufacturer.

The above manufacturer’s warranty:

  • is independent of any warranty that may be provided by the seller, for which he carries the sole responsibility;
  • does not affect the purchaser’s rights against the seller nor any other mandatory statutory rights the purchaser may have against the seller.

The CATENA S.A.’s customer service ensures the perfect maintenance of your CATENA watch. If your watch needs attention, rely on an official CATENA dealer or an authorized CATENA Service Center as set forth in the enclosed list: they can guarantee service according to CATENA S.A.’s standards.
