HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR WATCH FOR SERVICE

You may find it necessary to return your timepiece for service. We look forward to serving you. The guidelines below will help you submit your watch for repair to our service facilities.

If you live in the United States, we recommend you send your watch via insured carrier to our Torrance, CA facility as this location is better equipped to handle large volumes of repairs and inquiries. Package your timepiece in a sturdy container with sufficient padding to protect your watch during transit. All shipping containers and packing materials are discarded upon receipt. As such, please do not use any containers and/or materials you wish returned.

Address your package to:
COA
Attn: Customer Service
1000 W 190th St
Dept R
Torrance, CA 90502-1040

Include a detailed letter describing what repairs you would like performed as well as a daytime telephone number, email address, and your return address. Be sure to keep a copy of your letter for your records, and note the case and serial numbers.

If desired, you may use our printable PDF form.

If you submit your repair within your warranty period, please be sure to include your completed warranty card or proof of purchase detailing the date and model. For out-of-warranty work, or for work not covered by the warranty, an estimate detailing such costs will be sent to you prior to proceeding with the repair. Chargeable repair work will not commence until we have received your approval. You may authorize Citizen to proceed with the repair by email or telephone. Repair work must be paid for by credit card. Please note: We are unable to quote exact repair prices via email or telephone as actual parts needs cannot be determined until our technicians have had an opportunity to review your timepiece.

Turnaround time varies by time of year, but generally runs about 10 to 12 business days (not including transit time) after approval and payment of an estimate. Warranty work will flow through without an estimate and is usually completed within 10 to 12 business days (not including transit time) after receipt.
