Cases Where Full Repair and Accuracy is Not Possible

This is especially true with vintage watches, watches that have been neglected, severely damaged, or improperly repaired by another person or service, or not been properly kept or serviced prior to sending to Fast-Fix. In this case, Fast-Fix will work with you to get the best possible results, so long as you’re willing to work with us.

Your complete warranty will be provided when your watch is returned to you. The warranty on your specific watch may have restrictions or modifications depending on your watch and its condition. The warranty provided with your watch supersedes the above warranty.
