[CANADIAN CUSTOMERS:] The Canadian Union of Postal Workers files 72-hour notices to strike. This means the union will be in a legal position to commence strike action on August 28, 2016. Following that, they will be free to take further action to disrupt the postal service at any time without additional warning. If service is disrupted, Canada Post will likely halt the acceptance of new shipments and the delivery of mail and parcels already in the mailstream.

I ordered this watch for my husband for our first anniversary. The first one that came in was dysfunctional, and the seller was very cooperative and always responded in a prompt manner. The second watch functions perfectly and is beautiful. My husband loves his new watch!

The leather is beautiful, soft and the watch is amazing! I ordered one and realized it was far too big and the service for my exchange was fast, friendly and super helpful! Thank you so much!

About

Quality means doing it right when no one is looking. –Henry Ford

Horology and leathercraft have been our family tradition for three generations. Our trade remains unchanged since the 1950s, when my grandfather tailored men's attire and made leather products by hand. He owned a family store and workshop where he taught my father his trade. I started Ground Effect in 2011 and since then have shipped thousands of leather watches to over 50 countries.
Items in our shop are made with the same expertise my father and grandfather possessed and cherished. Our goal is to have happy customers, and to achieve this, we focus on making lasting items that will be enjoyed for a lifetime.

Thank you for your support.

INT'L ORDERS: If delivery is not made within 14-days, please call or visit your local post office and give them the tracking/customs number that was saved to your Etsy order page. If they can not locate the parcel, this usually means it's still being processed by customs. Please wait patiently for delivery. If your order is time sensitive, please choose a shipping service that best suits your needs. Most parcels are delivered on time, but delays can occur at any time, with any shipping service due to customs inspection. We can not guarantee delivery on specific dates, or before Christmas.
If you're not home at time of delivery, call or visit you local post office to re-schedule delivery or to pick up the parcel and give them the tracking/customs number that was saved to your Etsy order page. Parcels are usually held for 7-10 days by postal carriers and are returned if they are not claimed within that time frame. If the parcel is returned, we'll re-ship it via standard mail.
