It is not looking like the Royal Mail tracking number is going to work in the USPS site. As the Royal Mail site states it was turned over to the United States carrier. USPS site just states they were informed of the senders intent to despatch the item. I will give a few days and check again. See if anything changes. Probably about 7 or so days away.

Here's what I was given from USPS. this is chronologically backwards.

Delivered - February 15, 2012, 1:10 pm (I think I said the 9th on an earlier post) I'm an idiot.
Registered Mail™

Processed Through Sort Facility - February 09, 2012, 3:37 am ISC NEW YORK NY(USPS)

Origin Post is Preparing Shipment

The Processed Through Sort Facility will remain for many days there even though your parcel is on it's way to you. Forget the FedEx/UPS luxury - it's not there. you may get the watch at your door with a sig required or, like me, it end up in your mailbox.

Hope that helps.

Well today the USPS site showed that the parcel arrived in NYC yesterday on the 24th. So the Royal Mail tracking number appears to be working on the USPS site.

There seems to be a big backlog on regular mail into the states. I sent something recently via Airsure that took 10 days to get out of Royal Mail's Washington facility and into USPS, it the took 48 hrs to get to the facility in Nevada.

At this point in time I wish I would have paid for the better shipping. It has been 8 days since I ordered it, so I am sure that is not really bad, but it has seemed longer. I also have not liked not having a real tracking number here in the states. It has said the same thing on the USPS site for 4 days. For all I know it has not moved in four days. I don't have a lot of faith in the USPS here as they have left many packages on my porch that were for my neighbors. I don't like having to rely on the honesty of my neighbors when it comes to a item this expensive. I don't think I will buy a item that cost this much without making sure it will be delivered UPS or Fedex.

If you can't rely on your neighbors honesty, you should move!!!

Tries ones patience huh?

UPS is only shipper that has crushed one of my items and I have shipped and sold bunches on ebay. It will just show up soon.
