I'm still gun shy buying anything above $800 until someone can tell me exactly what my taxes are going to be - from what I can tell the HTS in the US for a 17 jewel or higher stainless steel automatic is code 9102.29.55 - which is tax at $1.55 + 4.2% on the case and 9.8% on the band/bracelet. So if I buy a c60 GMT on the rubber strap for $895, should I expect to owe about $50 in duty?

Mine was closer to $10 + $12 DHL fee. They didn't charge me import tax for the movement, not realizing it qualified as part of the watch "head". Not sure if that was correct or not but I didn't complain.

Glad to see they are taking steps to ironing out the DHL process. Loving my watch and will be picking up a new one once the white dial tridents drop
