If the watch is one of our special release pre-order models, this will be clearly stated along with estimated shipping dates. Payment is made when order is placed, and watch will be shipped as soon as production is complete. You will be kept updated during the production process and these watches are often produced in limited numbers and are only available as a pre-order. However, should you change your mind during the production process you can request a refund at any point. And as with all Octon watches, we have an easy 30-day return policy.
