3. PURCHASE OF GOODS, ORDER PROCESS

Your order for a product on this website is an offer to purchase a product in accordance with these terms and conditions of sale and delivery.

Once you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us confirming that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted.

Orders are subject to acceptance by Hermann Kobler Watches.

If the products you ordered are not available, we will notify you by e-mail and you can wait until the product is in stock or cancel the order.

We confirm that we have accepted your order by sending you an order confirmation e-mail with information about the estimated delivery time. This creates a binding contract between you and us.

This contract is only valid for products whose shipment has been confirmed by us in the order confirmation. We are not obliged to deliver other products that may have been part of your order unless the shipment of these products has been confirmed on a separate order confirmation.

4. PRICE AND PAYMENT

The price of a product corresponds to the respective information on this website, except in case of obvious error. The prices quoted include the applicable VAT rate, but do not include shipping costs; these are stated separately when the offer is made. Before the order is placed, the individual prices, including shipping costs, are shown separately and as a total price.

Our website contains a large number of products, and although we do our best, some of the products listed on our website may not be priced correctly. We usually verify the accuracy of prices as part of our shipping process. If the correct price for a product is lower than the price we quote, we will charge the lower amount when the product is shipped. If the correct price is higher than the price indicated on the website, we will, at our discretion, contact you before shipping the product or decline your order and notify you of such a decline.

We will not be obliged to ship you a product at an incorrect (lower) price if the pricing error is obvious and unambiguous and you could reasonably have recognised it as an incorrect price, even if we have already sent you an order confirmation with an incorrect price.

Payment can be made with the credit cards mentioned in the order process. We will indicate the price to be paid in the order confirmation. Payment must be made before the products are delivered. If you pay by credit card, your credit card will be charged with the full amount due shortly before the products are shipped. We may suspend delivery of the products until full payment is received.

All credit card holders are subject to validation and approval checks by the card issuer. We are authorised to exchange the cardholder’s personal data required for these checks with third parties (card issuer and any other third parties involved in the payment process). If the card issuer refuses to authorise payment, we are not liable for delays or non-delivery.

5. DELIVERY
