Errors and Inaccuracies

While we are always working to keep these websites up to date with the latest, complete, accurate information, a website will never be free from human or technological errors. In order for our extensive catalogue to be viewed online, we use information such as text descriptions and pictures to advertise products. Due to the various operating systems that can be used to view these websites, the sizes, colourings and details of actual products may vary from those pictured or described. Typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions may occur in situations regarding products description or availability. We reserve the right to adjust this information, without prior notice, in order to rectify any issues that may have occurred. Please note this can also happen after an order has been placed. Pricing is frequently worked on to ensure that our prices are correctly advertised. If prices are found to be inaccurate or contain errors then we reserve the right to amend the errors to reflect the correct information without prior notice. If an order has been placed and this occurs we will inform you of the error and will come to an agreement on how to proceed. We reserve the right to increase prices of our products without prior notice in accordance to any price increase made by the brands. If a price increase occurs after the time an order has been placed we reserve the right to charge the higher price, unless otherwise agreed. If in the event of an order, a pricing error has been found and part/full payment has been made, we reserve the right to cancel the order if a mutually acceptable solution cannot be reached.

WEEE Regulations

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.

The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.

  1. Much of the UK's WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health.
  2. Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.

Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.

The Watch Source is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.

For example, if a customer bought a new watch from us we would accept their old watch and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item.

Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol.

Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
