Some of the goods we sell (quartz and electric watches) contain batteries. These batteries contain toxic heavy metals. Disposal with household waste is strictly prohibited.
In connection with the sale of batteries and accumulators or with the delivery of devices which contain batteries and accumulators, according to battery regulations we are obligated as a dealer to point out the following:
The disposal of accumulators and batteries in household waste is prohibited! According to the Battery Ordinance, you are obliged as a consumer to return used batteries and accumulators to the distributor or to the collection points set up for this purpose by the public waste disposal authorities.
Batteries that contain harmful substances are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out waste container, similar to the symbol illustrated below. Under the symbol is the chemical name of the pollutant - "Cd" for cadmium, "Pb" for lead, "Hg" for mercury.
It means that you must not put batteries in household waste. Please dispose of the used batteries at a municipal collection point as required by law, or at your local retailer.
Batteries received from us can be returned after use:
