The following terms and conditions of the Jaeger-LeCoultre International Guarantee apply to watches sold or presented for guarantee repairs in all countries except the United States of America and Canada (for those two countries, see the Limited Warranty) and Australia where the guarantee for Australia applies. Your Jaeger-LeCoultre watch is guaranteed against all manufacturing defects for two years from the date of purchase, subject to the following conditions. Any part found by our technical services to be defective as a result of a manufacturing defect will, at the sole discretion of Jaeger-LeCoultre, be repaired or replaced free of charge. The Jaeger-LeCoultre International Guarantee is valid only if the guarantee certificate enclosed with this booklet has been duly completed, dated, stamped and signed by the authorised Jaeger-LeCoultre retailer who sold your watch. This Jaeger-LeCoultre International Guarantee does not cover defects resulting from accidents, mishandling or incorrect or abusive use (for example, knocks, dents, crushing, excessive temperatures, powerful magnetic fields), the use of or effect of using batteries other than those designated by Jaeger-LeCoultre, unauthorised alteration or repair or the consequences of normal wear and ageing of the watch, the strap or the glass, the loss of water-resistance after two years from the date of purchase if your watch is water-resistant, or any defect resulting from contact with water if your watch is not water-resistant. Jaeger-LeCoultre water-resistant watches may be identified by the symbol engraved on the back. Their water-resistance is guaranteed for two years from the date of purchase, provided that the glass, the bezel, the back, the middle part and the crown have not been damaged. It is essential to have the water-resistance checked by an authorised Jaeger-LeCoultre retailer or an official Jaeger-LeCoultre Service Centre at least once a year, and in any event, prior to any period of intensive use (please refer to the operating instructions for further details). For quartz watches, this guarantee does not cover the battery life. As a consumer, you may have legal rights under applicable national legislation governing the sale of consumer goods; those rights are not affected by this guarantee.
