    I recently ordered a Strela 3017 from Ukraine, and the seller was supposed to send me a leather watch band as a plus. When the package arrived, I only got the watch, and I am assuming either US or Ukraine customs may have stolen the watch strap. I have already contacted the seller, and he is...

    Hi, Has anybody had any experience on buying used watches from Indian sellers ? They look good value but not sure if you would be stung with custom fee's and charges - details from seller are a bit sketchy although they have very good feedback - it's only a few quid so may be worth the risk -...

    I have a question about customs duty. I am well aware that most people will have to pay some amount of customs duty upon ordering a watch from a different country. However, this is my situation and I wonder what will happen to me - 1. I will order a watch from Germany. It will be shipped to...

    Hello, Portuguese fellow posting here for the first time :) I fell in love with this particular Komandirskie K-34. My problem: the stores where I can find it ship from Russia or the USA. Unfortunately this could be troublesome to pass through Portuguese customs. m-watches.com sells it and...

    I bought a Sinn U1 from Germany from a private seller. I was assessed a duty of $44. Does anyone know if I qualify for duty free, or exemptions...I thought used items are not subject to duties. What can I do to dispute or if I am even allowed to dispute and claim refund. thanks

    How do you know the Swiss watch Duty Percentage when importing into the US? Logic tells me that the movement should have most of the value for brand name watches. Is this correct formula. Watches like Tag Heuer, Breitling, Tissot... Customs asks for Percentage on Case, Band, Movement...
