Will I be charged VAT?

UK VAT Sales Tax at 20% is automatically charged on all orders that are shipped to the UK, where applicable. Orders shipped to addresses outside of the UK are subject to VAT exemption in accordance with the UK Customs and Excise rulings. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to pay all subsequent import tax and duty on goods shipped to their respective country - we cannot list an incorrect value on a customs invoice and requests to do so will not be completed. In the instance that items are returned to Nite Watches as a result of rejected payment, subsequent charges incurred will be deducted from any refund issued.

What does pre-order mean?

Occasionally items may be out of stock.

Pre-order means that the product is not in stock and we are awaiting delivery. The pre-order date shown is the estimated date the watch will be ready to ship to you, but if this changes then we will contact you to advise of a revised date.

NB: If you order a model on pre-order the transaction will complete immediately and the funds will debited from your account.

How do I earn reward points?

Earn reward points with every purchase you make with us.  For every £1 spent you will receive a reward point.  10 points = £1.

You can accumulate points and then redeem them against future purchases with us.

To earn reward points you have to create an account or login to your account prior to completing your order at the checkout.

Reward points cannot be applied to previous purchases.

Do you offer discounts for emergency services and military personnel?

Yes, we offer a 10% discount on the full RRP of watches to all emergency services and military personnel upon presentation of qualifying ID.

Terms and conditions
10% discount is only valid against watches priced at the full RRP and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer, discount or sale.
Proof of service must be provided in order to qualify for the discount.

What is PVD?

The black and rose gold coating is achieved using the Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) process.  Although the coating is extremely resistant, regular wear and tear can cause the decorative layer to detioriate over time.  The warranty does not cover this type of aesthetic wear.

Due to higher copper content in the rose gold PVD coating there is a risk of oxidation due to conditions it may be exposed to. Where this occurs the warranty does not cover this.
