Our secure payment system is supplied by WorldPay who are regulated by many financial institutions to ensure safety.

It ensures that Authentic Watch Co does not have access to the data submitted when you make your purchase and it remains solely with the card issuers.
We also use World Pay because it uses the 3D secure system – effectively the equivalent of card chip and pin – the pin being a security password that you set between you and your card issuer. It adds an extra level of security for you and ensures that Authentic Watch Co is not subject to fraudulent use of cards.
Where a card holder does not have 3D security on his card, shipping may be delayed by up to 2 working days until the payment is cleared by your card provider.
We do not surcharge for the use of debit or credit cards which is rare to see these days. Where payment is by cheque, we must have cleared funds in our account before the goods are despatched. If a bankers draft has been provided, goods will not be despatched until the draft has been appropriately authenticated.
