Buying a Watch on Montro
How do I buy a watch on Montro?
Unlike other platforms, Montro puts you in direct contact with our retail partners to discuss and complete a sale. Once you’ve found a watch you’d like to buy, start a conversation with the retailer by clicking the enquire button. They’ll be in touch to discuss your interest in the watch and from there you can book a viewing appointment, make payment and arrange shipping. We’ll contact you a few days later to check you’re enjoying your new watch and make sure your Montro experience was a good one.
What payment methods do you accept?
Montro does not take payments for transactions. Instead we leave that to our Retail Partners to give both you and them flexibility. As a general rule, most major credit and debit cards are accepted as well as wire transfers. Please contact the retailer of the watch you are interested in for further information.
What currencies can I pay with?
At this stage of our evolution, all of our Retail Partners are located in Europe and only accept payments in Euro.
Can I see the watch in person?
Yes! Simply use the contact button on the watch listing you’re interested in and arrange an appointment to view at your nearest location.
Are the images of the actual watch I’m buying?
They certainly are. All product images on a listing page are of the actual watch you would be getting. Please note that accompanying editorial, lifestyle images and video content will be of a similar watch and not the one listed for sale.
Who takes my payment?
The retail partner offering the watch takes full payment and the payment method is left to you and the retailer to agree upon.
Is my payment protected?
Montro is unable to offer payment protection at this time, however all of our retail partners undergo a strict vetting process in order to trade on our platform. We also regularly review their performance to ensure they continue to meet our high standards.
Is everything on Montro in stock and available to buy?
Our search engine prioritises watches that are in stock with our retail partners. If you can see an “In Stock” icon on the listing you are viewing, the watch is available to purchase right away.
What warranties or guarantees do I get?
Every Montro Retail Partner offers a minimum warranty of 12 months on every watch they sell and have access to brand accredited service centres in the event of a problem with your watch.
How do I know the watch I want is authentic?
Montro has a zero tolerance policy on counterfeit watches. We take great care to select only established and respected retailers from the watch industry. All of our retail partners have a wealth of experience selling pre-owned watches and select only the finest examples for their stock. What's more, many of our retailers are brand-accredited, meaning they are authorised by the watch manufacturers themselves to sell their timepieces.
The watch I want is out of stock, can you get one for me?
Yes we can! If you’ve come across a listing for a watch that isn’t currently available simply click the “Find Me One” button and we’ll send out an alert to our network of retail partners, who’ll try their best to find one for you. If there’s a watch that isn’t on Montro at all, drop us a message and we’ll track it down for you.
