All leather and rubber straps are self adjusting. Watches with bracelets are dispatched unsized so not to jeopardise the refund & exchange policy and also because they will be more accurately adjusted by a jeweller in your presence. You will find that most jewellery shops can adjust your bracelet while you wait for around £10.

Inflation Provision, applicable only to 3 year policies:
If, as a result of inflation, the Replacement Value(s) shown on this Certificate prove(s) inadequate to repair or replace the item(s), the Replacement Value(s) will be increased to allow fair repair or replacement, but such increase shall not exceed 20% of the original value(s).
- Any individual item of jewellery exceeding £5,000 in value or any watch exceeding £3,500 in value.
- Any Insured person not resident in the United Kingdom.
- Any item composed entirely of brittle material.
- Any losses from baggage, clothing or other belongings unless such baggage, clothing or belonging is being carried by hand or worn by the Assured or by any other person to whom the Assured has given the insured item as a gift.
- Any item stolen from an unattended vehicle.
- Any cost of repair or replacement which would improve an insured item beyond its condition immediately before the occurrence of the loss or damage leading to a claim being made.
- Any loss or damage attributable to:
- the actions of mechanical or electrical breakdown (in the case of a watch or a clock),
- the actions of moth, vermin, gradual deterioration, wear and tear or design defect, or
- the process of cleaning, repair or renovation.

- When the Underwriter settles a claim for the replacement of an item, or where the sum insured is used up in its repair, the premium for that item will be deemed to have been utilised and all cover on that item will cease with immediate effect.
- All steps must be taken to prevent loss or damage and maintain the items in good condition.
- The Underwriter may cancel this certificate by giving thirty (30) days notice of such cancellation in writing to the Assured at their last known address and the premium will be adjusted on the basis of the Underwriter receiving or retaining the appropriate proportionate premium. This will only be done for a valid reason such as:
- Non-payment of premium
- Non co-operation or failure to supply documentation requested
- Unless specifically agreed in writing by the Underwriters this insurance shall be governed by the laws of England and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the UK Courts.
- If you (the Assured) make any claim knowing it to be false or fraudulent in respect of any loss or the amount involved, this claim could be declined and all future claims made under it could be forfeited.
The criteria for determining which claims are payable under this insurance are as set out elsewhere in this certificate and these criteria will be used whether or not you consider that the event(s) which have led to any loss(es) are cyber-related.
Should you need to make a claim under this certificate contact the Jeweller that issued this certificate to notify the loss at your earliest opportunity and within thirty (30) days in any event. In addition, you must ALWAYS notify the police, even when abroad, of any loss caused by theft or the disappearance of an item and obtain a crime reference/lost property number where one is issued, and you must provide the Jeweller (or any person appointed by the Underwriters) with any information, documentation, or evidence of the loss. Failure to comply with these requirements could lead to the claim being rejected.
Your Jeweller will ask you to complete a simple claim form regarding the circumstances of the loss. Your claim will be passed on to the Underwriters and if they decide that an insured loss has taken place and settlement is agreed by the Underwriters, your Jeweller will either replace a lost item from stock or arrange for a damaged item to be repaired and the invoice for repair/replacement will be sent to TH March for settlement direct with your Jeweller.
If you are unhappy with the way your claim is being handled you should follow the procedure shown above to make your complaint.
