The right to return the product only applies in the case that the product and its original packaging can be returned in the same state as when received.

BURKER WATCHES advises the customers to return a product by insured shipment and in a sealed packaging. In case an insured return shipment goes missing, gets damaged or in case the reception of a returned shipment is denied (for example, in case no valid signature can be shown by the carrier), the customer then has the option to hold the carrier liable. The customer, as the sender of the return shipment, must start the complaint procedure for any issue that may occur with the return shipment. The customer must keep the (official, digital) receipt of his/her return shipment that contains the tracking information.
The shipment costs for a return shipment within the trial period and the shipment costs for a return shipment for a warranty request or repair request (for defects occurring after the customer has used the product), are borne by the customer. In case of a revocation by the customer within the trial period, BURKER WATCHES will credit the customer within 14 days after receiving the return shipment (no credit applies for costs of the return shipment). Any credit due as a result of a returned product will be credited to the account that the customer used to pay the original order.
