Lighters Warranty - Cartier

LIGHTERS WARRANTY

This Cartier lighter is an original Cartier creation, made and tested to meet the traditional quality standards of Cartier.

Each Cartier lighter carries an individual serial number which provides a record of both origin and authenticity.

Only Cartier boutiques, as well as Cartier authorised dealers who are the exclusive dealers of Cartier lighters, are authorised to provide the Cartier International Guarantee service, as defined below, in accordance with Cartier's instructions.

Cartier lighters are guaranteed for an unlimited period against any manufacturing defects under the following conditions: any part found by our technical service to be defective as a result of a manufacturing defect will be replaced free of charge by Cartier. However, after the first 24 months from the date of purchase, the labour cost of any repair will be charged, whether or not the replacement parts are supplied under the terms of the guarantee.

Creations acquired from non-authorised dealers, or a website other than Cartier.com, are not guaranteed authentic creations by Cartier.

The Cartier International Guarantee does not cover in particular:

  • damage resulting from accidents
  • mishandling or abusive use (knocks, dents, crushing, etc.)
  • the use of gas or flints other than those sold by Cartier
  • unauthorised alteration
  • manipulation or repairs, as well as the consequences of the normal wear and ageing of the lighter
  • the gas tank after the first 24 months from the date of purchase
  • the flint wheel after the first 24 months from the date of purchase

In order to benefit from this guarantee, you will be required to present your Cartier International Guarantee Certificate, duly completed, dated, stamped and signed by an authorised Cartier dealer.
Please ensure that you retain this certificate.

Caution: The guarantee will not be valid if accessories other than those prescribed by Cartier have been used.

Should your lighter require servicing or repair, please return it to a Cartier boutique or any Cartier authorised dealer, taking care to enclose the duly completed Warranty Certificate.

Limited Warranty

Except to the extent prohibited by applicable law, this Limited Repair Warranty is a limited repair warranty and shall be the exclusive repair warranty in lieu of any other express or implied warranties. Neither this Limited Repair Warranty nor any other warranties arising from repair of, or service performed on, the product, or replacement parts, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, any implied warranty of merchantability or implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose, shall extend beyond the period of one (1) year from the date of repair stated on your original Initial Repair invoice and/or Initial Repair documents. Under this Limited Repair Warranty, during the Limited Repair Warranty Period, CARTER will repair or replace any defective replacement part associated with the Initial Repair free of charge subject to the right to charge for shipping costs. This is the sole and exclusive remedy. CARTIER shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages. CARTIER does not authorize any distributor or seller of its products to make any warranties beyond this Limited Repair Warranty, or to otherwise assume for CARTIER any obligations or liability in connection with the repair of or service performed on its products. Some states, provinces or territories do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

The present Limited Repair Warranty is granted by CARTIER and is in addition to any other legal rights you could have based on the relevant national legislation; this Limited Repair Warranty does not interfere with such rights.

This Limited Repair Warranty is totally independent of the CARTIER International Warranty or Limited Warranty given with your purchase.

Please note that the present Limited Repair Warranty, the intervention invoice and/or repair documents shall not be construed as a certificate of authenticity.
