We sell luxury timepieces at considerably lower prices than the manufacturers list price. Gemnation is not an Authorized Zenith Watch Dealer and is not affiliated with Zenith. Authorized dealers are not permitted to discount or sell watches on the Internet. For this reason, we choose not to be authorized watch dealers for many of the brands that we sell.

Since we are not authorized dealers for many of the watch manufacturers, we may be unable to ship the original watch manufacturers warranty. In all cases, however, we provide a Two Year Gemnation Warranty (active from the date of purchase).

Gemnation utilizes a full-time Swiss-trained watchmaker who is licensed and trained to repair every brand and model of watch that we sell. If we can supply the original warranty we provide this information in the individual watch description. Read More.
