How does the watch rental process work?
- Select the perfect luxury watch for that special occasion. You can filter the watch rental collection based on our recommendations for Event Formality and Occasion. You can also filter by watch specifications (e.g. size, brand, case material, etc).
- Select the watch rental start date (delivery date) and return date (date that you will ship the watch back to us).
- Select your wrist size on the cart page.
- The watch will be shipped to you by a commercial shipping company (e.g. UPS, FedEx).
- Return the watch for free on the last day of the rental period using the prepaid shipping materials.
What's the security deposit?
- A few days before your watch rental start date, we'll charge your credit card a security deposit in the amount of approximately 10% of the retail value (when new) of the watch.
- The security deposit will be refunded back to your credit card after you return the watch and it is inspected by us.
How long can I rent a watch for?
- Watch rental periods are 3 days to 2 months.
- We can accommodate longer rentals. Just let us know.
- Your rental start date is the date that the watch is delivered to you.
- Your rental return date is the date that you ship the watch back to us.
Can I extend my watch rental?
- Yes, as long as the watch has not been reserved by another customer for the desired extension period.
- Please contact us with your rental extension request.
What about wear and tear to the watch?
- We understand that some amount of normal wear and tear might happen, and that's ok. However, you'll be responsible for any significant damage to the watch.
What if the watch is stolen from me?
- Once you take delivery of the watch, you will be responsible if it is stolen or lost during the rental period. Please treat the watch as if it was part of your personal property.
What's the cancellation policy?
- Cancellations made 15 days or more before your watch delivery date will result in a full refund to the original payment form.
- Cancellations made less than 15 days before your delivery date, but before the watch is shipped to you, will result in a credit to your Axess Rewards account equivalent to the amount paid for the order (e.g. $100 = 10,000 points).
- Cancellations made after the watch is shipped to you, but before your delivery date, will result in a credit to your Axess Rewards account equivalent to the amount paid for the order, minus a $25 cancellation fee.
- Axess Rewards points can be used on any future rental.
- You can request a cancellation by emailing us or using the "Contact Us" link on our website.
Do you offer insurance?
- The watches are insured at no cost to you during shipping only. Once the watch is delivered it becomes your responsibility.
- If you have homeowner's or renter's insurance, your policy might provide coverage for the watch. Please check with your insurance agent.
Can I rent a watch if I do not live in the United States?
- Unfortunately, no. At this time, our service is only available to United States residents with US addresses.
Will I need a credit check?
- In some cases, due to the high value of our watches, we might need to review a credit report.
- If necessary, we will contact you before fulfilling your order with instructions to complete the credit check.
How will the watch be sized?
- When you select the watch, you will indicate your wrist size on the top section of the cart and we will size the bracelet/strap accordingly. Please contact us, if the watch does not fit properly.
How do I correctly measure my wrist?
- Click on the Wrist Sizing link at the bottom of the page for instructions.
