Re: Yes, You Must Pay Duties And Taxes....

In general, you don't have to pay any taxes on your personal belongings when travelling. Some of it only applies when you acquire new watches while you travel.

Re: Are import duties still an issue?

DHL is a very small company in the USA without their own nationwide delivery network these days. Using Fedex or UPS for shipments to the USA would make things go a lot smoother but they don't seem to understand that.

Been wanting to try a good Japanese whisky for some time now. Ignorance of the subject kept me on the sidelines. I'll try your suggestion.🥃
This one is pretty smooth but there are many different kinds of Japanese whisky made by Suntory. In between a bourbon and blended whisky from Scotland.

DHL wants me to pay $109 import duties..that's 13% of the watch price!
The duty rate is only about 3 to 4% so probably under $30 for a $850 watch. The DHL fees are the rest of the total charge.

There is no sales tax that needs to be paid.

I like that. Presumably for the Japanese domestic market?
Yes, the Oceanus watches are JDM only. They are made at the Yamagata factory in Japan.

Re: Non CW of the Day

New purchase. I was not going to buy any watches while travelling in Japan but could not resist this new for 2019 Oceanus. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190515/99df827fa76f0539c5718cb21a187cfc.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190515/13d3d8150b119d9c83f83e95b9faae59.jpg Sent from my iPhone...

Re: Non CW of the Day

I brought 2 other watches but shouldn’t have bothered... the perfect GADA travel watch. And I need a wall clock like this. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190508/25544a419b46eb9e58f74cfdfc1a00c0.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190508/a9f68201bd6fd6c57051ad0102a06e49.jpg Sent from my iPhone...

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 - pictures..!

Any chance of a mock up to see what the MK3 would look like with the old logo? Just to see what might have been. Not the old logo but was playing around with a more compact, modern and simple design at 12: http://horology.world/forums/topic/35-design-suggestions-for-cw-watches/?do=findComment&comme...

Re: What would you like to see next?

C60 Trident quartz with the same features as the automatic. And not a basic quartz movement but with automatic hand positioning, perpetual calendar, solar charging and atomic time sync or HAQ. Basically a Casio Oceanus features in a C60.
