Martin & MacArthur Watch Warranty

Martin & MacArthur Watch Warranty

Martin & MacArthur offers a limited warranty that covers defects of materials and workmanship of the quartz watch movement or mechanical watch movement for a period of two (2) years after the original purchase date shown on the receipt. 


      • The watch warranty is voided if there is any evidence of water damage. Our Watch Service Center will open the back of the watch to assess the damage to the movement.  If there is evidence of water exposure or water damage in the watch movement, then the warranty is voided.  The watch may still be repairable, however, it will be at the expense of the watch owner.
        • The watch warranty does not cover any part of the crystal face, quartz battery, metal clasp or repairs to any part of the wood watch band, including the replacement of the screws connecting the wood links.  Damage to the wood watch band can be repaired. However, repair of the wood watch band is not covered by the limited warranty for the quartz movement.
    The watch warranty does not cover malfunction or damage resulting from accidents, negligence, misuse, or normal wear-and-tear.  If customers choose to replace the quartz battery on their own, without sending the watch to our Watch ServiceCenter, any ensuing damage to the movement will not be covered under the warranty.  Any sign that the watch back was opened will void the warranty.  We recommend all battery replacements be sent to our Tense Watch Service Center.   


      How to Send a Wood Watch for Repair

      For repairs, customer must contact our Tense Watch Service Center by phone 1-604-525-5633 or email  

          • Customers will be given a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) Number.
          • This RMA# must be written on the outside of the package, or Tense will refuse the shipment.


        Ship the watch via your national postal service (e.g. USPS, Australia Post, Canada Post).

            • Do not ship the watch through private couriers like FedEx or UPS
            • Canadian Customs will delay shipments that are sent via FedEx or UPS.
