May 23rd, 2003...Introducing the Jaeger-LeCoultre Forum, the Hamilton Forum in addition to the Swiss Watch Talk and American Watch Talk forums. We're pretty knowledgeable about Jaeger-LeCoultre and Hamiltons so go ahead and post some tough questions!

October 3, 2002... To help assist our customers in determining the scarcity or collectibility of a given timepiece in today's market, some watches in this catalog have been assigned a rarity/collectibilty grade of 1 star through 4 stars. With the stars indicating the following:

Scarce/Very Collectible
Rare/Highly Collectible
Extremely Rare/Investment Grade Collectible

Factors that influence the assigned "collectibility grade" are:
- Horological milestones (like the first automatic, the first alarm, etc.)
- Technical Quality and innovative design.
- Historical Importance.
- Condition in Relationship to other examples of similar type.
- Low survival rate to other examples of similar type.
- Investment potential.

September 1, 2001...In order to streamline the ordering process, we switched to Express Mail shipping for all orders under $2,000. Express Mail can be tracked and generally arrives overnight although service may be second day to some locations. Registered Mail will continue to be an option for orders over $2,000 and is required for orders over $5,000 due to insurance limitations of Express Mail.

Finer Times has experienced some substantial losses of overseas shipments in recent weeks. International Express Mail is being stolen in Miami. The U.S. Postal Service does not appear concerned, so effective immediately Finer Times will use FedEx for all overseas shipments. Such shipments will be insured by Parcel Pro, a third party insurer of watches and jewelry shipments. International orders should email for a shipping quote before placing an order. We are sorry for any inconvenience this change may cause our valued overseas customers.

January 17, 2001...You've probably noticed many changes to the page. While we thoroughly test the page before changes are activated, we may well miss something and appreciate any comments you might have about the new look and the operation of all the links.!

We have also increased our mechanical warranty to 30 days effectively immediately.

January 1, 2001...Finer Times is starting its fifth year on the net! Thanks to all our customers who have made this endeavor such a pleasure. We sincerely appreciate the many positive comments about Finer Times'. We will continue to work to keep it the best available source for your vintage wristwatch needs!

June is now proudly a member of the better business bureau's "BBBOnline Reliability Program" as a firm comittment to total customer satisfaction.
