In case the buyer wishes to use his/her right to revoke the agreement and to return his/her order, the buyer is only allowed to unpack and/or to use the ordered product as far as is needed to be able to determine whether he/she wants to keep the product. During the trial period the buyer must carefully handle the product and keep the original undamaged packing. The buyer shall return the ordered product to Cortese together with all the accessories (if any) and, insofar possible, in the original state and packing, in accordance with the return instructions of Cortese (as described on the packing slip). The buyer is responsible for the return shipment of his/her order and bears all the risks for the return shipment. Cortese advises the buyer to return a product by insured shipment and in a sealed packaging. In case an insured return shipment goes missing, gets damaged or in case the reception of a returned shipment is denied (for example in case no signature can be shown by the carrier), the buyer then has the option to hold the carrier liable. The buyer, as the sender of the return shipment, must start the complaint procedure for any issue that may occur with the return shipment. The buyer must keep the (official, digital) receipt of his/her return shipment that contains the tracking information.
The shipment costs for a return shipment within the trial period and the shipment costs for a return shipment for a warranty request or repair request (for defects occuring after the buyer has used the product), are borne by the buyer. In case of a revocation by the buyer within the trial period, Cortese will credit the buyer within 14 days after receiving the return shipment. Any credit due as a result of a return shipment, will be credited to the account that the buyer used to pay the original order.

The Cortese warranty policy is automatically in effect upon purchase by the buyer. The two year warranty on a Cortese watch guarantees the buyer that the product meets the standards of usabilty, reliability and durability.
The warranty does not apply:
- damages as a result of improper usage such as scratching, bouncing, falling;
- in case of inattention;
- intentional damage; or
- neglected care.
The warranty on a watch relates to the movement and not to other parts such as the glass or the strap. Wear traces visible on the strap of a watch, must be considered as normal effects of usage. The effects of transpiration on the strap differ from one person to another, due to the differences between acidity.
Warranty does no longer apply to a Cortese watch in case a third party performed repair works or other works on the Cortese watch, without written permission by Cortese.
In case of questions regarding returns and warranty, the buyer can always contact the Cortese customer care team via [email protected]
