I don’t live in the EU (European Union). Do I still have to pay the 19% value added tax (VAT)?

 

No. If you don’t reside within the EU, the 19% VAT will automatically be deducted from your order when you enter your shipping address.

 

I am placing an order from within Germany, but I’d like to export my purchase to a country outside of the EU. Do I still have to pay the 19% VAT?

Yes. However, if you include a note in the comment area of your order explaining your intention to export your purchase, we will be happy to provide you with a VAT rebate form.

 

 

I would like to substitute the strap on the watch that I am ordering. Is this possible?

 

Yes. If you include a note in the comment area of your order, we will be happy to change the strap with one of equal value from our online shop. Straps with a higher retail value will need to be purchased additionally. However, if you wish, we can ship your watch on the additional strap (providing you order it at the same time as your watch). The strap that your watch originally came with will of course be included in your shipment.

 

 

What about the warranty claim?

 

Laco gurantees a period of 2 years.
