You can also remove from the shopping cart one or more products that you selected during the validation process.

If an order is placed through the Customer Relations Center, the Trilobe Ambassador will guide you through the above steps and verbally ask you to confirm the details of your order. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse, cancel or terminate orders at any time on reasonable grounds. For example, we may refuse, terminate or cancel your order in the event of an ongoing dispute regarding payment for a previous order or if we suspect, in our sole discretion, of (i) fraudulent activity; or (ii) any other violation of these General Terms & Conditions of Sale.

Unless otherwise specified, all prices indicated on the product pages of our Site or indicated by the Customer Relations Center include sales taxes/VAT applicable in France as well as shipping charges, but exclude all other taxes, in particular those potentially applicable in the country of shipment of the ordered product. We accept payments in euros and dollars. The applicable currency will be mentioned on your shopping cart before you finalize your order. You will need to carefully check the updated prices and the applicable currency. Sales or use taxes will vary depending on where the products are delivered. Shipping options and costs are described, if applicable, in the “Shipment” section indicated below or on the Sales Channels. Transport costs relating to the shipment of items ordered on the website are borne by the company and are not invoiced to customers, unless otherwise specified. We reserve the right to change prices and shipping charges at any time and without notice. We can offer a VAT refund mechanism if you decide to have the products shipped to certain European Union countries and, no later than thirty (30) days after, to transfer them outside the European Union under certain conditions. Such a mechanism will not be available to customers in the European Economic Area. For more details, please consult our FAQ section or contact our Customer Relations Center. We ensure that product prices are correct when the relevant information has been entered into the system or communicated to you via the Customer Relations Center. However, despite our reasonable efforts, it is always possible that the price of some of the products offered may not be accurate. If the price of any of the products you order or the shipping costs are incorrect, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the ordering process, we will cancel the order and notify you in writing. If we accept your order in error and process it when an error occurs in the indicated rates or shipping charges, we may cancel the supply of the product and refund the sums you have paid. Please note that changes to the law in effect between the date of placing your order and the date of receipt of a written Order and Shipping Confirmation may change the taxes associated to your order. If the resulting change results in an increase in the taxes charged to you, we will contact you and ask you to reconfirm your order.

We accept payment methods identified as part of the ordering process via Sales Channels. Depending on the means of payment, we may request additional information, including any special form of identification. When ordering on our Site, you will be asked to provide your payment details on the appropriate form. In the case of an order placed by telephone, you must provide your full payment details to the Customer Relations Center. All payment card holders are subject to a validation check and authorization procedure by the card issuer. If your payment card issuer refuses to authorize payment in our favor, you will need to contact them directly to resolve the problem. Other means of payment may also be subject to validation checks and an authorization procedure for payment system providers. You expressly authorize us to perform security checks if we deem it necessary, to transmit or occasionally obtain information (including updated information) about you to or from third parties, including but not limited to your payment card details, in order to authenticate your identity, validate your payment card, obtain initial payment card authorization and authorize individual purchase transactions. You can also pay a deposit. The total amount of your purchase will be blocked on your payment card until your order is shipped, at which time you will be notified of an Order and Shipping Confirmation and your payment card will be charged the applicable purchase price. If we use Stripe as a means of payment, the full amount of your purchase will be charged to your credit card immediately after placing your order. Prepayment will not affect your legal rights under these General Terms & Conditions of Sale (including, for example, any right to a refund). If we are unable to meet our shipping and/or delivery obligations set out below, we will inform you by email and refund the prepayment without delay. We can accept any bank transfer in payment of orders at our sole discretion. We do not charge a bank transfer commission for any order placed through the Sales Channels or the Customer Relations Center. However, some banks may charge bank transfer fees. We require that all orders paid by bank transfer and placed by telephone be confirmed through an order approval process. We can acknowledge receipt of an order paid by bank transfer but the order will only be processed after we have received payment and confirmed receipt by email. If your bank transfer is not credited to our bank account within seven (7) days of placing your order, your order will be canceled.

Once you have made your choice and placed your order on our Site, you will receive an Order Acknowledgment Receipt (by email or otherwise, confirming the details of your order and an order reference number). Be sure to keep this order reference number for any subsequent request or search for information about your order. This Order Acknowledgment Receipt does not constitute acceptance of your order. To confirm the order, we will perform standard legal controls in the areas of credit, anti-fraud and security, as well as related controls, and if they are satisfactory, we will then process your order. Upon receipt of the Order Acknowledgment Receipt, it is your responsibility to verify it and confirm that it accurately reflects your order intentions. If you have any questions or concerns or if the Order Acknowledgement Receipt does not reflect your intentions, you should contact us promptly at cercle@trilobewatches.com These General Terms & Conditions of Sale will be provided to you as soon as we acknowledge receipt of your order.

We only accept orders to be delivered to the identified country(ies) during the Ordering Process. Please note that we do not ship products to certain addresses, such as military zones, restricted areas, collection points or PO boxes. For more information, please visit our FAQ section or contact us at cercle@trilobewatches.com Withdrawals from our showroom can be offered free of charge. Please refer to our “Shipment” section or contact us at cercle@trilobewatches.com for more information. We will inform you by email or telephone when the product is ready for collection. However, we remind you that each limited edition is the subject of a handing over ceremony. Should you be unable or unwilling to attend the ceremony, shipping will only be possible after the discount event as stated on your order form. If you order several products, we will only ship the order once all the products are available (there will be no partial shipments unless you have been informed to the contrary).

We will send you an Order & Shipping Confirmation in writing (by email or otherwise) at the time of shipment of your order. This Order & Shipping Confirmation is an acceptance of your order by us, indicating the existence of a legally binding sales contract.

We will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the shipment is made by the carrier within the estimated delivery time from the date of our written Shipping Confirmation and in any event within thirty (30) days of that date, unless your purchase is for a product or service that will require additional shipping time as we have explained to you, for example, in the case of products or services that we customize or manufacture following your instructions. When confirming your order on our Site, we will inform you of an estimated delivery date (+/-7 days). If the shipment of products is delayed by an event that is beyond our control, we will inform you as soon as possible and make every reasonable effort to minimize the consequences of the delay. If we do not deliver within thirty (30) days of the date of the written Shipping Confirmation or such other period as we may specify, you may contact the Customer Relations Center to cancel the relevant order and obtain a refund of any amounts you have paid us as a deposit for any products you have not received. In any event, your right to cancel an order and to receive a refund of the sums you have paid to us as a deposit for any products you have not received is your sole remedy if we do not deliver the order in question. When assessing your shipment time, please take into account the payment approval time, address verification, security checks and order processing. Please note that delivery is always subject to receipt of your full payment. We will require a handwritten or electronic signature from you or from any person at the indicated shipping address (unless you make other arrangements) to confirm the shipment of each product, after which the risk and liability for the products you have purchased are transferred to you. If you have indicated a recipient other than yourself for shipment (for example, in case of a gift), you understand and agree that a signature of such recipient (or a person at the shipping address) constitutes proof of shipment and payment of the sales contract by Trilobe, involving a transfer of responsibility to the recipient’s address, as if the product had been shipped to you. For certain product categories, we reserve the right to request an identity check for verification purposes at the time of shipment. Please refer to our FAQ section or call our Customer Relations Center for more information.

1 – Our Trilobe Watches In order to benefit from the international warranty, Trilobe products must have been purchased exclusively on our Site, from an authorized Trilobe dealer or from our Trilobe showroom. Maintenance and repairs of your watch should be carried out by the Trilobe Service Center. If these conditions are not met, the manufacturer’s warranty cannot apply. This international warranty applies to Trilobe products sold or sent for repair under warranty in all countries

2 – Trilobe International Warranty Terms & Conditions Your Trilobe watch is guaranteed against any manufacturing defect for two years from the date of hand delivery, under the following conditions. Any part that our technical services consider defective due to a manufacturing defect will be repaired or replaced free of charge. This assessment is at Trilobe’s sole discretion. The Trilobe International Warranty is only valid if the warranty certificate provided with this booklet has been duly completed, dated, stamped and signed by Trilobe. Waterproof Trilobe watches can be identified by the symbol engraved on the back. They are water-resistant for two years from the date of hand-delivery, provided that the glass, bezel, back, case back, case middle and crown have not been damaged. However, it is essential to have the water-resistance of your watch checked at least once every two years and in any case before a period of heavy use by our Trilobe Service Center (for
more information, please consult the user manual) or if the warranty card is activated.

3 –Limited Warranty Policy This Trilobe International Warranty does not cover defects resulting from accidents, improper handling or improper or abusive use (such as impacts, impact marks, crushing, excessive temperatures, strong magnetic fields), unauthorized modification or repair, as well as the consequences of normal wear and tear and aging of the watch, wristband and glass, loss of water-resistance beyond two years from date of purchase if your watch is waterproof. Any intervention on the watch outside our approved Trilobe network cancels the
warranty.

4 – Technical Warranty After any intervention carried out with an approved Trilobe repairer, the work carried out is guaranteed for a period of 12 months. This warranty does not cover normal wear and tear or damage resulting from improper handling. In the event of damage caused by an
unauthorized repairer, the watch must be repaired at your expense.

5 – Trilobe Customer Service A Trilobe watch is a high-precision instrument that operates 24 hours a day, for a total of about 8’760 hours per year. It is therefore essential to schedule an interview every three years to ensure its proper functioning and lifetime. If you notice significant variations in functioning, it is necessary to have your movement revised. It is also advisable to have the water-resistance of your watch checked every two years or before any period during which it will be subjected to prolonged and/or regular immersion. Maintenance and repairs should be carried out by the Trilobe Service Center. Our approved Service Center is managed by watchmakers trained at Manufacture Trilobe and has the facilities, tools and components necessary for the repair and maintenance of Trilobe watches. We do this to prolong the health and life of your watch as much as possible.
