Free e-Sample Return to Top

What is an e-Sample?
An e-Sample is a virtual sample of the watch that you've chosen, customized with your company / organizational logo.  The e-sample acts as your convincer because you can see in advance exactly how well your logo looks on the dial of your chosen watch! See the exact size, position, & coloring of your logo on the watch dial. Take comfort in knowing that any potential "oops!" have been taken care of in advance.

How long it takes for receive an e-Sample?
Once we receive your artwork via e-mail, you'll receive your customized
e-sample watch with your logo on the dial within 72 hours. Normaly we deliver it within less than 48 hours. If you're in a hurry, let us know, and we will do our best to get it back to you within 24 hours.

How much does it cost?
The first e-sample is absolutely free of charge. Additional e-samples are available at $20.00 each.

Choosing A Watch - Where to Start Return to Top

How do I know which watch to choose? Where do I start?
A good idea is to first consider your budget. If you're looking to spend between $4.99 and $36.99 per watch, then a good place to look would be our Special Promotions section.  There you will find more than 150 quality watches to choose from, all within your price range.

If you're looking to spend a little more, we'd suggest our Corporate, Sports & European Watch sections where you'll find more than 250 high quality watches to choose from.  We know that's a lot of choice! But we make it easy for you...

On all of our pages you will find a handy dropbox listing of all watch categories.  You can travel seamlessly between pages and categories at your convenience.

How To Place An Order Return to Top

How do I place an order?
Fotowatch provides a detailed Preliminary Order Form  for your convenience.
Please fill it in, and send the completed order form to us online.
You will then receive, via fax, your detailed Order Confirmation for your signature and approval. The Order Confirmation contains all of the details of your order and can be modified or corrected before signature and return.

What are my payment options?
Fotowatch currently accepts the following forms of payment:
By company check · personal check · online check· bank to bank wire transfer (our bank information is shown on the Official Order Confirmation) · money order · travelers cheques.

When is payment due?
Unless other arrangements have been discussed, payment is due at the time of order - a standard for highly customized logo objects.

Will I receive a receipt?
Invoices/Receipts are delivered with all logo watch orders.  Upon request, paid in full invoices/receipts can be mailed 1 week after following payment receipt.

Approval Prototype Return to Top

What is an approval prototype?
The approval prototype is the actual physical watch that you have ordered with your logo on the dial.  It is provided to the customer before launching full production of your order.  The customer receives the prototype, looks it over, and confirms whether all logo and watch details are conform to the order details.

In other words, it's your insurance that there will not be any unexpected  surprises upon delivery of your order.  It is your insurance against the "oops" factor.  You'll know what's in the delivery package before you open it!

When can I expect to receive my approval prototype?
In most cases and when required, the approval prototype is delivered to you 2-3 weeks after order confirmation.  If you are in a hurry and have requested expedited production and delivery of your order, you can save approxinmately 1 week to 10 days off of the order process by opting for an electronic approval sample (e-sample).  You would receive, via e-mail, a very accurate and detailed photo image of your watch with your logo on the dial.  The factory e-sample, produced by design professionals, is scaled to size (1:1)  and is a strong substitute for a physical prototype.

Order Status Return to Top

How will I know the status of my order?
Fotowatch will e-mail you regular updates of your order status.

When will I receive my order?
Your watch order is delivered approximately 2 weeks after protype approval.
