Gray and Sons Certified Authentic Guarantee

The G&S Certified Preowned Advantage

certified Authentic Seal for web@4x.png

You would never know any of our certified watches were pre-owned unless we told you. Our Swiss-trained, professional watchmakers conduct a thorough, five-step restoration process. 

We inspect and certify that every timepiece has an accurately functioning movement and has a like-new polished case and bracelet.

Every watch is disassembled, down to the very last screw. Every movement is meticulously overhauled, using new parts where necessary. Mechanical movements are lubricated; quartz movements are fitted with new batteries.

Cases and bracelets are sent to our detailing/polishing lab, where all scratches are removed and where each case and bracelet is steam cleaned and polished to its original look, just like when it left its manufacturer. Each fine timepiece is reassembled, undergoing additional quality controls and testing during and after reassembly. Every water-resistant timepiece is tested to ensure water resistance.

The G&S International Guarantee

Every fine timepiece or article of jewelry purchased at Gray & Sons is accompanied by a Receipt of Authenticity and Valuation. Every Rolex watch is unconditionally guaranteed against defects in materials or workmanship in the mechanism for two full years after the date of purchase. This is double the manufacturer's warranty on a new watch!

All other manufacturers' mechanisms are unconditionally guaranteed against defects in materials or workmanship for one full year after the date of purchase, unless otherwise specifically indicated in the terms of sale. In addition, Gray & Sons offers something no one else in the world offers: our exclusive "Like New for Life Policy."

Like New for Life Policy

We want our clients to be happy with their certified pre-owned fine timepieces for many years to come. We make the extra effort through our Like New for Life Policy, a special, FREE program. Compare our Like New for Life Policy to the practices of the watch manufacturers, who usually charge from $150 to $400 per occurrence for this same service!

With our Like New for Life Policy, we provide FREE annual polishing, detailing, pressure testing, and battery replacement (as needed) for as long as you own your watch, for any certified pre-owned timepiece purchase of $2,000 or more. This benefit is not transferable. To maintain this valuable and unique benefit, have Gray & Sons clean your timepiece and perform a "lubrication overhaul" every 36 months or sooner for a nominal charge.

Normal wear is to be expected. At your request, crystals, crowns, gaskets, deep nicks, dents, and bracelet stretching can be repaired or replaced for an additional charge.

Return Privilege

All Gray & Sons certified pre-owned fine timepieces and jewelry items are available on a 10-day "no questions asked" return policy. If for any reason, you are not completely satisfied with our products, simply return them to us within 10 days for a prompt and courteous replacement, exchange, or refund, whichever you prefer. We'll even refund the shipping! Unused watches and special orders are not returnable unless defective in workmanship.

Sales Tax

Any item sold within the state of Florida is subject to 7% sales tax. Please be advised that while items sold to customers outside of the state of Florida are exempt from Florida Sales & Use Tax, in some cases customers may be responsible for Sales & Use Tax in their home state (although we will not be collecting it).
