We will require a handwritten or electronic signature by you, or a person at the nominated delivery address (unless arranged by you otherwise), to confirm the delivery of each product, at which point risk and responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example, as a gift), then you understand and accept that evidence of a signature by such recipient (or a person at the delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfilment of the sales contract by GWC and transfer of responsibility to the recipient in the same way as if the product had been delivered to you. We reserve the right to deliver the products only to the person who is the intended recipient of the order as stated on the label of the parcel and to request ID check for verification purposes at the time of delivery for certain categories of products. Please call the Client Relations Center for more information.Please note that GWC will not send the invoice and payment details to the Gift Recipient.

15. OBLIGATION TO INSPECT AND REJECT WARRANTY
15.1. Commercial or technically unavoidable, material-related deviations of the quality, colour, size, equipment or design of the goods do not constitute a defect. This also applies to documented and disclosed potential signs of ageing on CPO watches.
15.2. You are obliged to inspect the delivered goods as soon as it is feasible in accordance with usual business practice and to immediately inform the Client Relations Center of any defects detected. If you fail to do this, the goods are considered approved. The approval is deemed to be implemented in any case if Client Relations Center does not receive a notification of defects via e-mail within 8 days from you.
15.3. Defects that were not identifiable in accordance with the previous paragraph are to be immediately reported to Client Relations Center after discovery, otherwise the goods ordered are also deemed to be approved with regard to these defects.
15.4. Before returning the goods, the Customer must Client Relations Center. This notification can be done simultaneously with the notification of defect (see clause 15.2 and 15.3 above). Customer Service will inform you how to proceed. The defective goods must only be returned after this notification. The transport costs incurred for any return shipment will be borne by us. Goods that are returned again become property of GWC, if the performance of the guarantee takes place by means of delivery of a replacement.
15.5. GWC may satisfy a warranty by eliminating defects. This is implemented at the discretion of GWC either by supplementary performance, namely elimination of a defect (rectification), or delivery of a defect-free item (replacement delivery). If neither supplementary performance nor replacement delivery is possible, then the performance of the warranty is by rescission. When selling CPO watches, the GWC's warranty takes the form of remedial action for any defects. However, only repair (rectification) is available. If repair is not possible, then the GWC agrees to cancel the purchase (‘Wandelung’ – Art. 205 OR).
15.6. If the supplementary performance fails, then you are entitled to withdraw from the contract. This does not apply in the case of minor defects. A right to a reduction in price is excluded. This exclusion of liability also extends to all claims that compete with the warranty rights, such as those from contract (Art. 97 et seq. CO), tort (Art. 41 et seq. CO), contestation of the contract due to error (Art. 23 et seq. OR.), etc.
15.7. GWC is not obliged to guarantee, if you or a third party does not comply with the operating or maintenance instructions for the goods, makes changes, replaces parts, or use consumables that do not correspond to the original specifications. The same applies to defects that are due to improper use, storage and handling of the goods, external interventions and opening of goods. A warranty for normal wear, consumables, accessories and for included batteries is excluded.
15.8. The customer receives no guarantees within the meaning of the law, except the manufacturer’s warranty (or, in the case of CPO watches, the specific CPO warranty provisions). The Customer does not receive guarantees in the legal sense. Of course, manufacturer guarantees remain unaffected. GWC assumes no liability for the descriptions of third parties.
15.9. The aforementioned limitations and shortages do not apply to claims due to damages caused by GWC, its legal representatives or vicarious agents:
– in case of injury to life, limb or health
– in case of intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty and fraud
– as part of a guarantee agreement, if it is so agreed
– if it falls within the scope of application of the Product Liability Act.
