All products on Watchismo.com are priced in USD since we're based in the United States of America. We only charged you the exact USD amount shown at checkout. Because you are located outside of the US, any difference in the total amount charged is caused by currency conversion/fees from your financial institution. Please contact them for further details.

My first transactions were declined. Why are there multiple charges showing on my credit card account?
What you are seeing are temporary authorizations from your bank for the declined attempt and your financial institution should correct these within a few days as we have not and can’t process them. Please note that your credit card may be pre-authorized to verify funds are available. A pre-authorization is a temporary hold to verify that funds are available when you place an order. If your transaction is unsuccessful your credit card may be authorized, but that does not mean that it has been charged. It is not necessary to contact customer service to remove a pre-authorization, if you need assistance removing a pre-authorization from your credit card transaction history, please contact your bank or financial institution.

How does my watch work?
Your watch should have an instruction booklet for specific functionality. Some eco-friendly brands (example: Vestal) do not provide a printed instructional manual, but make the instruction manuals available for download on their brand website. If you need additional help, we would be more than happy to assist you. Visit our Contact Us page

My battery died within 30 days of receiving the watch, what do I do?
Most watch batteries can last over 2 years from when they’re first put into the watch. If the watch stops functioning, this is most likely due to a prematurely dead battery cell - which just needs to be replaced. Any qualified local watch repair store, jewelry store, or watchmaker can replace the battery for you. Visit our Contact Us page if your battery has died within the first 30 days.

What do the water resistance ratings mean?
Water Resistance indicates how well a watch is sealed against the ingress of water. It is usually accompanied by an indication of the static test pressure that a sample of newly manufactured watches were exposed to in a leakage test. An indication of the test pressure in terms of water depth does not mean a water resistant watch was designed for repeated long-term use in such water depths. For example, a watch marked 3 ATM/30 meters water resistant cannot be expected to withstand activity for longer time periods in a swimming pool, let alone continue to function at 30 meters under water. This is because the test is conducted only once using static pressure on a sample of newly manufactured watches. The test for qualifying a diving watch for repeated usage in a given depth includes safety margins to take factors into account like aging of the seals, the properties of water and seawater, rapidly changing water pressure and temperature, as well as dynamic mechanical stresses encountered by a watch.
Here are some activities that some brands use to illustrate water resistance.

3 ATM = Not intended for any exposure to water
5 ATM = Splash resistant, suitable for washing hands or light rain
10 ATM = Water Sports, suitable for swimming, surfing, etc.
20 ATM = Scuba Diving, suitable for extreme ocean depths
