Frequently Asked Questions
What is the shipping policy and availability?
Shipping rates are based on DHL for the Express option of USD50 or Singapore Post for the Standard of USD25. GANE watches are available to be shipped immediately and the delivery time is between 1 to 8 weeks after purchase. This is achieved by having ready stock, albeit in limited quantities. When current models run out, we will label them as 'Out of stock' and there will be no re-stocking of these models. We strive to create new models each time whilst maintaining our high quality standards.
What is your return policy?
We have a 14-day return policy from the date of receipt of your watch. Therefore, do submit an enquiry (refer to the Contact section) and we'll be glad to assist you in any way we can. In addition, our partner is a member of the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry FH that ensures its members meet the high quality standards of Swiss watchmaking. So we expect quality issues to be rare exceptions rather than the norm.
Do you offer gift cards?
No, we do not. We aim to keep our price reasonable while maintaining the value of our watches. While doing that, we want all watch enthusiasts to have equal opportunity to purchase our watches at the same price.

All our automatic watches are assembled, regulated and tested under stringent quality control in Switzerland by our partner, a member of the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry FH. Every single watch is tested for function and autonomy in Switzerland. Final quality control is done at our headquarters in Singapore.
Where are your products manufactured?
Do you ship globally?
Yes, we ship globally, typically with Singapore Post International, a very reliable and established courier delivery service.
What type of payment do you accept?
We accept payment via PayPal and major credit/debit card companies such as VISA, Mastercard and American Express.
How do I wind the watch?
Wind the crown of the watch 15 to 20 times in the clockwise direction to power up the mainspring. The watch will run automatically as long as the wearer is wearing the watch and moving their wrists.
How do I set the time on the watch?
From the crown's starting position, pull it out gently to the third position. Turn the crown in both directions to set the hour and the minute hands accordingly. Then push the crown back to the starting position.
