How long is your online delivery?

At Watches of Switzerland we wish for your purchase to arrive in perfect condition. Therefore, delivery will be made by our insured courier service and will reach you within 1-5 working days. All delivery times mentioned are subject to stock availability. Some of the brands we stock online can only be ordered directly from their stock. If your item has to be ordered direct, we will be unable to despatch your order within our 'normal' 1-5 day delivery, we will contact you to discuss and advise. Delivery times are extended over bank holidays and maybe extended as the result of any adverse weather conditions that are beyond our control. Please view our Delivery Information page.

Does your website ship internationally?
