Price was sub £400 on which I paid 20% VAT, no duty and UPS's Brokerage fee of £11.50 (paid online even before the package left the USA).

More detail may be found in this link on the GOV.UK website Tax and Duty on Goods sent from Abroad - although it appears to be in the 'Business & self-employed' section the info is good for a private transaction.

Hope that helps.

Just landed a new two-part antique leather strap from Alex Moss of Yellowdog straps. Exactly what I had in mind.

Keep in mind that the 'Double Twelve' versions sports 12 hour outer and inner rings..and the SS case is 40mm wide.. 8) good luck hunting!!..

Had this on since I got home. It’s just returned from a four/five week holiday in the fatherland. I read that Sinn were turning things round quick recently and although it was still running, a bubble had formed and it is over six years since Downer decided to part with it. Despite a worrying few days after it was tracked as signed for and they were ‘locating it’ I think it Is still very quick from what I’ve heard.
It looks like new and arrived in nice travel case.
