Fitting a Watch

What is Dakota Fit 'n' Finish?
Fit 'n' Finish is a concept developed by Dakota to allow you the opportunity to bring the watch buying experience to a more personal level in just three easy steps! 

1) Learning More...
Download the Fit 'n' Finish PDF file. This file contains all the information you will need to size your new wrist watch! When you download and print this file for our Fit 'n' Finish equipped watches, you'll notice it also comes with a measuring device to cut out. Wrap this around your wrist to measure your fit. It's that easy

2) Custom Fit...
Once you have measured your wrist size, select the appropriate size from the drop down box located on the itme page. You will be asked to enter the size required for Fit 'n' Finish at an additional charge. Once your order is placed, our on site watch technicians will remove or add the desired links to create the size requested. When your wrist watch arrives in the mail, it can go right onto your wrist without first taking a trip to one of our mall locations or your local jeweler to have it re-sized!

*Should you need your watch sized larger than what is offered on the site, please contact our customer service department at: customerservice@dakotawatch.com or call toll free: 1-888-459-0404. We will be happy to assist you with custom fitting your watch to your own specifications.

Please note that the custom fit wrist watch sizing does not guarantee the watch will fit perfectly, this just ensures that the watch will be close to the specifications requested. Minor fine tuning may be required, which can usually be done at home.

3) Personalized Expressions...
Add a personalized engraved message right on the watch or watch band when you order! "Happy Father's Day" on a pocket watch or "Congratulations Jimmy!" on the back of a new dress watch only makes a gift more meaningful!

*Please note that we have to limit engravings to 12 characters PER LINE. Thank you.

Personalizing a Watch

Looking back at all the gifts that you have received and trying to remember not only who gave them to you, but for what occasion, can be mind-boggling. The only foolproof way of making sure that a gift is always remembered is to have it personalized.

Dakota Watch Company realizes that when you give a gift, you want its memory to last a lifetime. That's why we offer personalization on a few of our Dakota Spider styles for both men and women. An anniversary date, birth date, or the date of a special event can create a gift that will be treasured indefinitely. Your personal message engraved on the back of a watch given as a gift can give the person reading it the same warm feeling as if you were face to face with that person.

We also offer a selection of custom fit watches, shipped right to your door, ready to wear that day! While browsing through our catalog, some items offer a service known as "Fit 'n' Finish". This means that when you order the watch, you have the option to give us your wrist size and we'll fit the watch to your specifications before we ship it. There's no need to run to your local jeweler to have links taken out of the band!

Take some time to view our selection of items with personalization options, here. If you truly want a timeless gift, get a personalized gift from Dakota!

*Please note: Give us at least a turn around time of 2 days to finish your personalized watch perfectly.

*Also note: There are NO refunds on personalized items.
