Chopard reserves the right to discontinue the production of any product and to discontinue the offering or sale of any product or service at any time, without notice. Chopard will not guarantee that any particular product or service displayed on this Website will be available at any particular location, even if that location has been indicated as a source for that product or service. In the rare case in which an item may become unavailable after you have received confirmation of an order for it, Chopard will contact you, offering you the opportunity to order another item or to cancel your existing order. The product images on this Website are representative and are not necessarily photographs of the actual product you will receive. While every effort is taken to try to ensure that the colouring, design, style, reference number, description and size of the products in the photographs displayed on the Website are representative of the original products, variations may occur. Because the actual colours and the representation you see on this Website will depend on your computer monitor and other technical factors, Chopard does not guarantee that the display of any products is accurate. If there are any details of a product that are particularly important to you, please contact us to discuss these details before you place your order.
Measuring guides All measuring guides found in this Website are provided as a reference only. You are responsible for determining the size of product that you wish to order. Any product that does not fit may be returned to Chopard in accordance with your legal rights and as set out below.
Orders The 'Online Store' section of this Website will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Before you submit your order, a summary page will be displayed featuring a photograph of each selected product, its colouring, and reference, the quantity selected, its unit price and the total amount payable for your order (including any delivery charges for your chosen delivery option). You should check that this information accurately reflects your selection before submitting your order. The summary page will allow you to identify and amend any errors in your order before you submit it. Upon submission, your order will be forwarded to Chopard for checking and processing. We will send you confirmation by e-mail that we have received your order. This confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of your order. Once your order and your payment have been cleared, you will receive an e-mail confirming our acceptance of your order (the “Order Confirmation”). A contract of sale is made between you and us at the moment we send you an Order Confirmation. Contracts of sale will neither be filed by us nor accessible to you.
Each Order Confirmation will include full details of your order, including the total price to be charged for the order, including taxes and delivery charges for your chosen delivery option. Please check the Order Confirmation very carefully. If there are any problems with your Order Confirmation, please CONTACT US.
In the unlikely event that Chopard is not able to fulfil your order (for example, if the product selected is unavailable), Chopard will contact you by email and/or phone informing you and offering you the possibility to cancel or amend your order. Once your order is processed and ready to ship you will receive by email a shipment notification with the tracking information for your package.
Pre-Sale Orders When the shipping date of our pre-sale products approaches, Chopard will send you an email at the email address you provided with your order and request that you confirm or verify your shipping address. If you do not submit your information within 10 days of Chopard's request, Chopard may, at its sole discretion, cancel your order and provide you a full refund of the amount you paid or continue to attempt to contact you. After you confirm your shipping information, we will notify you whether we accept or reject your order. Upon our acceptance, you will be bound by all the terms of sale applicable to purchases made through this Website.
Gift message service If during the check-out of your Chopard order, you opt to include a gift message, you acknowledge and agree that the gift message option is provided for your own personal and non-commercial use only. You are entirely responsible for the text and other content of your gift message and Chopard accepts no liability for any such content. We reserve the right to refuse to print a gift message that contains offensive language and to terminate access to the gift message service at any time.
Shipping and delivery
Areas of Delivery: We only accept orders through this Website for delivery to addresses within the United Kingdom. To inquire about deliveries to addresses outside of the United Kingdom, including the Channel Islands, please CONTACT US.
Shipping and Handling: We offer free Royal Mail Special Delivery Guaranteed by 1 pm for all orders. Our goal is to process orders for in-stock merchandise within 48 hours (2 business days) of receipt. Orders are processed Mon-Fri (excluding bank holidays). If we encounter any problems with your shipment, you will be notified. Your order should normally arrive the next day before 1 pm once you have received an email with confirmation that your order has been shipped. In any event, we will aim to deliver all products within 30 days of our sending an Order Confirmation.
All shipments require a signature by an adult (18 years old or older) on delivery. Upon signature by an adult confirming your acceptance of the product delivered, 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 at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfilment of the contract for sale by Chopard and transfer of responsibility to the recipient in the same way as if the product had been delivered to you. We recommend you inspect your package for damage or tampering before signing and accepting it.
Delivery Problems: If the delivery of your order is delayed, please contact us by email at “CONTACT US". Upon receiving your order, please carefully inspect the contents of the package. If there are any discrepancies between what you ordered and what you received, please let us know and return any incorrect products to us in accordance with our exchange and returns policy.
As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to any products that are not delivered within this 30 day period. Further information about your legal rights in respect of late delivery is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
Shipping to alternate addresses: If you ship your order to an address that is different than your billing address, as a security measure to protect our clients against fraud we will confirm your credit card has this alternate shipping address on record. To expedite the processing of your order, please call your credit card company and provide them with your alternate shipping address.
Your legal right to cancel
As a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel all or part of your contract for sale for any reason at any time up to 14 days after you receive the products you ordered.

If you cancel your contract for sale we will refund you the price you paid for the products within 14 days of the day on which we receive the products from you (or, if earlier, the day on which we receive proof that you have sent the products to us).
