Dutch term or phrase: fabrieksnieuwe
Whilst I realise this means brand new, in the condition in which it was supplied by the factory, I am struggling to find a specific term that works in the context of an extended warranty agreement. Does anyone have any ideas?
The sentence is as follows: "Voor het object wordt verlengde garantie verleend vanaf de bovengenoemde leverdatum aan de gebruiker in fabrieksnieuwe staat gedurende een periode van 60 dagen."

  -> Did you miss where I wrote: ‘in fabrieksnieuwe staat = in newly manufactured condition, in factory-new condition, etc.’ How clear do I need to make it? I think it is good practice to state references, if you have them.

agree  David Walker (X): I know that there are several translations for this but I think 'factory-new' is probably the best choice.
19 mins
  -> Thanks! I suspect that my first 3 (newly manufactured, factory-new, factory-fresh) would all be correct here; not so sure I'd use the last one.

agree  leacarter: Something like 'original condition of manufacture' sounds right. 'As new' is used by Ebay to describe something that has no defects but is not in its original packaging.
20 mins
  -> Thanks! Yes, ‘in its original condition of manufacture’ sounds like another correct option.

agree  philgoddard: Like a good dictionary, the more answers to choose from, the better. Though factory new seems the obvious choice.

  -> Thanks!

agree  Tina Vonhof: I would like to add 'original' to any of those options, just for extra emphasis.
7 hrs
  -> Thanks!
