I am trying to understand my total costs to purchase a Stowa and have it shipped to the USA. The tax situation seams to get confusing. I just want to make sure I know what I am paying for the watch, in total. Also, I have seen some posts that suggest your credit card gets billed at order and others 10 days prior to shipment. Given the May 2009 shipping date for the watch, is there any advantage to placing the order now? Thanks in advance for the help.
