Object of the contract and scope  

Types of products


Initium offers different types of products, such as:


-  Introductory watchmaking courses where, depending on the formula chosen, the customer can assemble and leave with his own watch. In all cases, these workshops include both a theoretical and a practical introduction to watchmaking. Some packages also offer a meal taken in the Company of a master watchmaker in an establishment in the region.


-  DIY watch kits at home. They include all the equipment and instructions necessary to make a mechanical watch independently.


-  shares of the Company Initium Watches Holding SA


Terms of payment and customer obligations regarding our introductory watchmaking courses


The prices of the different course packages are visible on the course page. These prices come into effect when ordering. The customer agrees to pay the full amount of the stay 30 days after receipt of the invoice and at the latest one month before the start of the course. If the client is unable to attend a course, he must inform Initium immediately. If the cancellation is not sent to Initium within the agreed timeframe, a cancellation fee will be billed as detailed below. When the customer cancels his stay within 30 days before the start of the stay, the course is refunded up to 100% of the amount. If the interested party finally cancels their registration within 30 days before the start of the stay, but at the latest 14 days before, the internship will be reimbursed up to 80% of the amount of the stay. If the course is cancelled within 14 days before the start of the stay, the course will be refunded up to 60% of the amount of the stay. A credit of a value equal to the amount of the unreimbursed workshop will be sent to you (validity date of one year). When the interested party cancels their stay for just cause (illness, accident, etc.) and on presentation of proof, the course can then be postponed to a later date.


Initium reserves the right to cancel a stay in the event of a significant and justified impediment. In this case, the customer will be fully refunded, and no compensation will be received. In the event of inappropriate or unruly behaviour with supervisors and/or with other clients during a course, Initium reserves the right to exclude a participant with immediate effect. In this case, the customer will, in no case, be reimbursed. Initium assumes no damage or obligation as a result of delays, difficulties in arriving at a destination or other inconveniences. The customer has a cancellation period of 7 days from the confirmation of participation in the initiation stay in watchmaking. If the interested party cancels the course within this period, they will be fully refunded, without having to justify the cancellation and without penalties.


Gift vouchers are valid for an indefinite period. However, the services included in the voucher may be subject to modification when certain formulas are redefined. A gift voucher can be refunded to the purchaser of the voucher within 15 days of ordering. Only a value of CHF 30.- will be deducted from the total amount of the gift voucher. This amount covers administrative and shipping costs. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that the address sent to Initium when ordering a voucher or gift box is correct. Initium is in no way responsible for the non-receipt of a shipment in the event of an error in the address, an undisclosed move or in the event of the customer’s absence upon receipt.


Purchase Conditions for Initium Watches


Watches assembled by the customer during a course in our workshops in Switzerland are guaranteed for two years from the date of the course. During the warranty period, Initium undertakes to either repair or replace any defective part of the watch free of charge. Repaired or replaced parts are guaranteed until the end of the warranty period. The shipping costs to have their watch repaired are not included in the warranty and is, therefore, the responsibility of the customer. The guarantee does not apply in the event of: -   Accident, improper or abusive use - Use of parts not offered by Initium - Repair carried out by any repairer other than Initium or agent appointed by Initium - Normal wear - Failure to notify Initium of a fault during the warranty period Repairs carried out by Initium regarding damage or defects due to the aforementioned reasons will incur additional costs for labour, transport and parts. For deliveries abroad, customs charges or any taxes may be added to the price of the service.


Warning regarding our watch kits: watches assembled by the customer independently from the house are not guaranteed. Indeed, even if our watch kits allow easy assembly thanks to clear instructions, we cannot guarantee a watch whose assembly has not been checked by one of our watchmakers.
