FAQ

Got a question? Chances are, someone’s asked it before. Look below for some of the most common questions.

Yes, there are always other strap color options and usually options for different patterns and materials.

There might be an upcharge.  If the watch is from the Selco Geneve or A*Belle line then there are probably color options at no additional charge but if you are looking for something specific, there is likely to be an upcharge.  If Selco sources the strap, it could slow the order down a little but there are great companies in the U.S. that supply great strap and band options.  Contact Selco for details.

Selco has over 40 brand partners including Movado, Baume & Mercier and Tag Heuer in the mid-level luxury range, Fossil, Bulova, and Seiko which are priced perfectly for recognition programs, Ebel and Michelle on the high end and many others.  We work with new lines to bring them into the industry like Rockwell and CX Swiss Military just added this year.  And we offer brands that have unique attributes like Jord Wood Watches.  Check out our product section to get a taste of the brands we offer.

ATM stands for Atmospheres.  It is a measurement of the amount of pressure a watch can withstand.  1 ATM = 10 meters or 33.3 feet.  A watch must be at least 3 ATM (30 meters or 100 feet) to be considered water resistant.  Watches typically range from 3 ATM to 10 ATM for entry level divers watches and up to 20,000 ATM, only from our partner, CX Swiss Military.

Watches are never considered watch proof because once water gets inside, it will get damaged.  The term water resistant is used instead.  Usually when a watch that is water resistant gets water inside, it is cause by a case back not installed properly, a crown not pushed in fully or a screw down crown not screwed in properly.

Selco can make a new dial for and cover the date or day/date window for many watches but not all.  The replacement dial can be a flat dial with printed markers and a printed logo or it can be a die struck medallion dial with a raised and polished logo.  Not all watch lines permit dial replacement so contact Selco for details.

All watches come in standard packaging provided by the watch manufacturer including all of Selco’s brands.  Selco also offers other options that can be utilized with any brand offered.  If you need wood, metal, prefer paper and many other choices, Selco can help.  Selco also has sources for unusual sized and shaped products, can source something custom and can pull from domestic suppliers.

Selco can also customize packaging with logos or supply completely custom packaging if the quantity and budget is right.

Many brands have rules on how their product can be decorated and Selco keeps track of these rules to keep your warranty in force. Selco is a dial manufacturer but some of our partners will not warranty a watch if the dial is changed out while others brands are okay with the change. Although we do not run into it often, some brands have restrictions on logos from certain industries. Selco can walk you through the process to ensure there are not any surprises with the brand you chose.

Selco has access to nearly all of the watches provided by each brand. Because we work with so many brands, and each brand offers a large selection, we try to support best sellers and watches that fill a price point of gap in our overall lineup on our website. If we work with the brand in general, then we almost certainly have access to the specific watch you are looking for as long as the manufacture has stock in the U.S.

While we think there are a lot of advantages to buying watches from Selco, we will do contract work on your watches. We cannot always guarantee warranties if the watch is not purchased from Selco but we take care of timepiece the same if we sell it or if you send it to us. Contact Selco for contract pricing.

Selco offers the largest variety of customization methods in the watch industry. Our go to customization methods have traditionally been pad printing logos on the watch face, making a new dial featuring a raised and polished logo and case back engraving using a diamond.  More recently we have added full color digital printing for packaging and watch dials, laser engraving on presentation boxes, straps, watch dials, and many other surfaces, and a combination of all of these processes to make new and unique looks for watches, watch packaging and virtually an other hard good.

Yes, Selco has many partners that offer wearable technology. Selco can supply activity trackers, full WearOS Watches (formerly Adroid Wear) from Misfit, Fossil and Movado and Fossil Q hybrids that bring the best of watch fashion together with many of the best features of smart watch like notifications and activity tracking. Selco can customize many of these items either on straps, on packaging and in a few cases, on the face.

Selco does not have any university or corporate licenses. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure they have the right to use the logo they are providing. Selco might question the right of the buyer to use the logo if the address does not seem to match with a reasonable use for the license holder.

If the watch is initially provided by one of our partners that has certified Selco to work on their watch, then your warranty is still in tact. If we feel the watch will not be under after we customize it, we will warn you of our concern.
