THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER THE FOLLOWING:

  • Damage caused by anything other than defects in materials or workmanship.
  • Use in commercial, rental, teaching or instructional programs or activities.
  • Damage caused by extended or excessive exposure to sunlight, improper handling or storage, or failure to follow instruction provided with this product.
  • This product when classified as being 2nd hand or it is being sold as a 2nd (it is being sold as a product with existing defects).
  • Normal wear and tear, including scratches and fading.
  • Wetsuits repaired by other repair service.

Please remember that your Rip Curl Watch Warranty is void if the watch is opened by anyone other than the Rip Curl Service Center.

  • Five years on Movements from the date of purchase.
    Note: A Movement is the part inside the Watch that makes it work, but it does not include the Crown, sometimes called the Winder.
  • Two years on Waterproof from the date of purchase.
    Note: We recommend all Watches be serviced, resealed and tested for water resistance every two years as heat, temperature changes, salt and other elements will diminish waterproofness over time. Have this done at the Rip Curl Watch Service Center and we will then issue a new warranty for another year.
  • One year on batteries from the date of purchase.
    Note: Rip Curl's Service Center can replace all batteries and at the same time will reseal and test the watch functions and water resistance. We will then issue a new one year warranty on the new battery.

*All warranty claims MUST be sent with a purchase receipt clearly showing the purchase date. The warranty book is not proof of purchase without a purchase receipt. Eg. A purchase receipt is the cash register receipt or credit card statement clearly showing the purchase. Note: Rip Curl reserves the right to repair or replace, with an equivalent style, any warranty watch.

Not covered by any warranty is the glass, band and case. Also not covered is damage caused by general wear and tear or any accidental damage.
