  1. This Warranty shall be VOIDED IF:
        • The watch has been damaged by accident, negligence or persons as determined by Shinola in its sole and absolute discretion.
        • If the watch battery is replaced by any service provider other than a Shinola authorized repair center.
        • If the watch is repaired or engraved by any service provider other than Shinola.

  2. If you have not registered your watch with Shinola this warranty does NOT apply.
      • If your watch requires complete replacement, and is covered by the warranty, Shinola shall replace your watch with the same model. If the model is no longer in production, a watch of equal value and similar style will be provided.
      • For service work that is not covered under this warranty, you will be notified of repairs needed and applicable charges. Shinola will commence such repairs only upon your prior approval to such charges or return the product, at your request.


Should you require a battery replacement, please complete a repair form by visiting us at Shinola.com or a Shinola retail store, or search the store locator page on Shinola.com for an "Authorized Battery Replacement Center" near you. Should you require work under warranty, please complete a repair form by visiting us at Shinola.com or a Shinola retail store. While they will not void the warranty, repairs and/or maintenance performed by Shinola's authorized repair partners is not covered under warranty; you will assume all cost associated with such repairs; Shinola will not provide reimbursement. Do not send original packaging, as it will not be returned. Shinola highly recommends you insure your parcel and adequately protect the watch during shipment. Shinola is not responsible for product lost or damaged during shipment. For service work that is not covered under this warranty, the service center may perform the services you request for a charge dependent on watch style and type of work requested. Such charges will be notified and agreed by you prior to performing the services.

The warranties and remedies above are exclusive and in lieu of all other warranties, terms or conditions, express, implied or statutory, as to any matter whatsoever, including, without limitation, warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, accuracy, satisfactory quality, title, and non-infringement, all of which are expressly disclaimed by Shinola. Shinola shall not be liable for incidental, consequential, indirect, special or punitive damages or liabilities of any kind arising out of or in connection with the sale or use of this product, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict product liability or any other theory, even if Shinola has been advised of the possibility of such damages and even if any limited remedy specified herein is deemed to have failed of its essential purpose. Shinola's entire liability shall be limited to replacement or repair at Shinola's sole option. However, some countries, states, or provinces do not allow the exclusion or limitation of implied warranties or the limitation of incidental consequential damages so the above limitations and exclusions may be limited in their application to you. When implied warranties may not be excluded in their entirety, they will be limited to the duration of the applicable written warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights; you may have other rights that may vary depending on local law. Your statutory rights are not affected.
