Conditions of Sale

Buyer's premium: The following premiums will be applied to the buyer's account, and due to Fortuna, on top of the Hammer Price:
30% on the first $300,000
23% from $300,001 to $3,000,000
15.5% on the excess over $3,000,000

Payment: 6.1 Balance Due and Due Date. We reserve the right to request a copy of official identification (e.g., driver's license, passport) and front and back of a credit card to authenticate prospective bidders. You will be required to pay the total balance of your account, which is equivalent to the sum of the Total Purchase Price for each lot purchased. Payment is due within seven (7) calendar days of completion of the auction ("Payment Due Date"). If the buyer makes a partial payment, we shall, in our sole judgement, apply the partial payment to any particular line item or lots on the buyers account balance that we see fit in whichever manner we see fit. Fortuna will not deliver any Property to a winning Bidder until all lots won by the Bidder at auction are paid in full and there is no outstanding balance on the Bidder's account. Payment will not be deemed made in full until we have collected good funds for all amounts due and all funds have cleared our bank account. If a buyer fails to pay their outstanding balance by the Payment Due Date, Fortuna will charge the buyer's credit card for the outstanding balance.
6.3 Accepted Forms of Payment and Associated Limitations and Service Charges. You may settle your account using the following accepted means of payment: cash, check, money order, cashier's check, book transfer, wire transfer, direct deposit, debit card, charge card, or credit card (the latter three collectively referred to herein as "Card" or "Cards"). The following Cards will be accepted: Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and/or American Express. A 3.5% service charge will be applied to the Total Purchase Price for all Card payments. Card payments are limited to a maximum $15,000 per Buyer/Bidder/Representative per auction. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, for any reason we deem necessary, to permit or deny any form of payment for any Buyer/Bidder/Representative and the right to increase or decrease any maximums, minimums, or thresholds stated herein.

Shipping Terms: Global Shipping
We have customers in over 100 countries. We provide fully insured global shipping, expertly arranged by our team. The shipping costs, determined based on the insured value of the package and its destination, will be calculated post-auction and added to your invoice. Please note, VAT, duties, or any additional charges related to international shipping are not included in these costs and remain the responsibility of the buyer.

VAT and Sales Tax: 6.2 VAT and Sales Tax. You are responsible for any applicable tax including any VAT, sales or compensating use tax or equivalent tax wherever such taxes may arise on the hammer plus buyer's premium. It is your responsibility to ascertain and pay all taxes due. Fortuna recommends you obtain your own independent tax advice. The successful bidder is responsible for any applicable taxes including any sales or use tax or equivalent tax wherever such taxes may arise on the Total Purchase Price. For lots Fortuna ships within the United States, a sales or use tax may be due on the Total Purchase Price, regardless of the nationality or citizenship of the successful bidder. Fortuna is currently required to collect sales tax for lots it ships to the following states: California, Colorado, Florida Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. In accordance with New York law, if Fortuna arranges the shipment of a lot out of New York State, New York sales tax does not apply, although sales tax or other applicable taxes for other states may apply. If you hire a shipper (other than a common carrier per the New York Department of Taxation and Finance), to collect the lot from Fortuna, Fortuna must collect New York sales tax on the lot at a rate of 8.875% regardless of the ultimate destination of the lot. If Fortuna delivers the lot to, or the lot is collected by a service provider in New York that you have hired, New York law considers the lot delivered to the successful bidder in New York and New York sales tax must be imposed regardless of the ultimate destination of the lot. In this circumstance, New York sales tax will apply to the lot even if Fortuna or a common carrier (authorized by Fortuna that you hire) subsequently delivers the lot outside New York. Successful bidders claiming an exemption from sales tax must provide appropriate documentation to Fortuna prior to the release of the lot or within 90 days after the sale, whichever is earlier. For shipments to those states for which Fortuna is not required to collect sales tax, a successful bidder may have a use or similar tax obligation. It is the successful bidder's responsibility to pay all taxes due. Fortuna recommends you consult your own independent tax advisor with any questions.

Property Sold As-Is: Please be aware that all lots are sold "As Is". We do not guarantee that the lot is in pristine condition or devoid of imperfections, or wear and tear that is consistent with the age of the item. Watches, unless still in original packaging or never worn, will likely have some degree of wear and scratches. This should be expected for many of the watches offered in auction. Even if a watch is running, bidders and buyers should expect that all movements will require maintenance. Watches are not guaranteed to be keeping time. It falls under the buyer's responsibility to inspect the lot or request additional photos and condition details prior to bidding.
