Archetype gladly offers a limited warranty covering defects in materials and manufacturing for a period of one (1) year after the original purchase date from an authorized Archetype retailer. This warranty does not cover case, crystal, crown, pushers, straps, or any changes that occur during use and not from manufacturing or assembly. This warranty is considered void if you open your caseback, push the buttons underwater, or expose your watch to moisture beyond the recommendation of the watch’s water resistance rating. Proof of purchase is required for all warranty claims, so please save a copy of your receipt. Archetype reserves the right to not accept a warranty claim if a watch has evidence of excessive wear or misuse. Archetype reserves the right to repair or replace any watch returned for service at our option.


Please message us via our Contact Form if you need warranty or repair service.

We have a service center in the US that can make the necessary repairs. Repair time is typically under 30 days, but it depends on the severity of the issue and the availability of replacement parts.
