About Avail

What makes Avail different?


We don’t just view watches as functional time keepers or disposable fashion items, we see watches as a critical part of our journey, wherever our course may be set to take us. We create thoughtfully designed, carefully sourced, timeless, yet sleek & modern premium watches to accompany you through the next most important phase of your life. We rely on our integrated and agile supply chain & progressive business model to enable us to offer our timepieces at competitive price points without compromising on quality or design. Lots of watch brands claim this too, but we truly do offer quality timepieces, from an independent brand at affordable prices. You will be able to see this by taking a look at the quality of our design, the quality of the materials used in our ranges, and the fair, affordable price points. We also offer two tiers of timepieces (our Signature Range & our Collection Range) so that our brand is accessible to more people.




What are the two tiers that you offer?


Our Signature Range watches are all crafted from full stainless steel, using a Seiko or Miyota Japan Quartz (renowned for their precision and accuracy), with genuine cow hide leather straps or stainless steel bands, with Avail detailing on the dial, crown (not our Arlo model) and buckle and finished by hand in the UK.

Our Collection Range watches are all crafted from a stainless steel alloy mix, with stainless steel case backs, using a quality Japan Quartz, with brand detailing on the dial & buckle and with a genuine leather or stainless steel strap. Still with all the style, care and craftsmanship of our Signature Range, and still a perfect accomplice on your journey - whatever that may be.




Why do you offer two tiers?


The biggest part of our philosophy is that we offer our watches at fair prices. We don’t just say this, we do it. In order to make our watches accessible to even more people, we created the Collection Range which still carries the style and quality you deserve but at extremely competitive price points. This allows our customers to choose which price point is right for them and gives all of our customers more choice.

Returns & Warranty

Is there a warranty?


Yes. We stand by the quality and durability of our watches by offering a two-year warranty from the date of purchase.

This warranty applies to any manufacturing or workmanship defect concerning the case, movement or strap. It does not apply to the battery or damage or defects caused through misuse, force applied to the watch or normal wear and tear. Any warranty claim must be accompanied by proof of purchase and details of the warranty card you’ll find in the box.

For full details of our warranty please visit www.availwatches.co.uk/warranty.

If you have any other question don’t hesitate to contact us on warranty@availwatches.co.uk




What is the Avail return policy?


We all change our minds from time to time or maybe buy a couple of items to see which one we like best. That’s fine with us. As long as the watch remains brand new and you contact us within 30 days of purchase, we will happily refund your order if you send it back to our UK workshop. Please make sure you kindly return the warranty card and watch box along with your watch. Please contact us on sales@availwatches.co.uk to arrange a return.




How long does it take to process my return?


Once your return has been received by our UK workshop (and as long as it complies with our returns policy) we will refund you the full amount of your order, excluding the cost of shipping, to your original payment method.

After we have processed your refund, it will take up to 3 working days for the funds to be placed back into your account.

Our Watches

What comes with the watch?


Maybe it’s just us but we think that part of the fun of ordering online is waiting for it to arrive and then unpacking your new item. We think that careful and premium packaging is important and so all of our watches are dispatched in strong Avail branded packaging with an Avail branded watch box. We also include our Avail 2 Year Warranty Card which is stamped by us and relates to your individual watch.




What type of Movement is used?


All of our watches use Japanese precision Quartz movements. Our Signature Range watches use either a Seiko or a Miyota precision Quartz movement which are amongst the best and most well known in the industry.




Are Avail watches waterproof?


Yes. All of our watches have a water resistance of 3 ATM.




What type of leather is used?


All of our leather straps are made of genuine cow-hide leather.




What is the glass made of?


Our glass is made of quality hardened mineral crystal.




How do I replace my battery?


All of our watch batteries can be found online, or at any watch repair shop as well as most jewellery shops. Any watch repair shop or jeweller should be able to help you with the battery replacement. We don't suggest replacing the battery yourself, as it requires some special tools and you could damage the watch and it might also void your warranty.

When will my order be dispatched?


As soon as we receive your order we will prepare your timepiece for dispatch. It usually takes us 24 hours to carefully pack your timepiece and arrange courier collection. Usually all orders are dispatched within 48 hours and are received by our customers within 3-5 working days.
