How should I return my watch?

You must return the watch to our partnering watchmaker. The condition of the piece will be evaluated and your deposit unlocked.


Where do our pieces come from?

We are currently working with a professional network of jewelry and watchmakers who provide new and second-hand pieces.

These pieces are constantly restored into good condition in order to offer you the best quality every time you are renting an item.

We also give private owners the opportunity to entrust us with their pieces and we take care of them the exact same way for each rental.


How are your watches insured? 

Our watches are insured by Gras Savoye against any direct material damage, including theft, deterioration or loss*.

Once you receive the item we’ll ask you to sign a code of practices in which you commit yourself to taking good care of the given piece.

Then the watch is under your responsibility so you must not loan it nor entrust it to a third party.

  • within the terms and conditions of the current contract.


The watch I want is not on your website, what should I do?

You can send us a message at and we will look for it. We can’t promise to find it but we’ll do everything we can.


What should I do if I want to keep my watch longer?

If you want to keep your watch longer you should inform us as soon as possible (as long as the piece is available) and we will send you a new lease.

Every two months the item should go back to Luxothèque in order for us to perform a check on it.


What should I do if I want to buy the watch I am currently renting?

If you fall in love with your watch we make sure you will have the best purchasing terms. Obviously we will also take into account the price you paid when you rented it and subtract it from the purchasing price.

If the watch belongs to an individual owner and he does not want to sell it we will do everything in our power to find you the identical replica.


I am late to return my watch, is it a big deal ? 

If you are stuck in traffic or you have missed your flight, do not panic. Call us as soon as possible (+33 (0)6 522 500 50) and we will inform our partnering watchmaker.

If your delay exceeds 24 hours, you will be charged (the price of your watch per day + 10% late fee). For example, if you return your watch on Thursday morning instead of Tuesday morning and its daily price is 47€, you will be charged 47×2 + 10% : 103,40€.

After a delay of 72 hours without hearing from you the watch will be considered stolen and your deposit will be cashed by Luxothèque.
