It depends on the person inspecting the goods I guess. I don't shop on ebay or anything.. mostly shop on Amazon, those guys take an "import deposit" so they pay customs on your behalf and if there is no customs they refund you back that amount. It's not as bad here as UK, South America or other places like that when it comes to customs fees.
    I believe that Watches made in Japan, not shipped from, it has to be made in Japan, and being imported into the US have no duty. Anything worth less that 200 also has no import fee. But other things, can have an import fee, it depends on type of goods and country of manufacture. I just got hit with 17+% on a headporter nylon backpack.

    In Sweden only goods valued below 300 SEK or about $45 are generally slipped through without any added fees. But that is only an unofficial policy, sometimes you get stung even on those low amounts. The general rule is that you have to pay sales tax/VAT of 25% on both the goods and the shipping fee you paid and on top of that you also pay a 100 SEK or about $17 spedition fee. There is no customs to pay for goods below 1300 SEK or about $200(watches shipped from the US above that value have a maximum custom of only $1.25 regardless of value even a Rolex, so that is very low if we compare for instance clothes and shoes that on top of 25% sales tax also have a extra custom penalty fee of 12.5% added to them) so for instance if you import a $100 watch and paid $35 shipping from the US here in Sweden expect to pay $33.75 in VAT and another $17 on top of that for the expedition fee, so a total of $50.75 or a little more than 50% in extra fees in relation to the cost of the watch. If it were $100 in shoes the total in customs costs would have been about $71. So we have very high taxes here in Sweden.

    Told to me by a Dutch sea pilot:

    What is the difference between European Heaven and European Hell?

    In European Heaven...the Germans build the cars....the French do the cooking....the Italians are the Lovers....the British are the Police....and the Swiss run the Government.

    In European Hell....the French build the cars...the British do the cooking....the Germans are the Police....the Swiss are the Lovers....and the Italians run the Government.

    ^ LOL!

    Well, regarding French cars, they do make some nice ones. Citroen has churned out a few beauties over the years. But this is post 406, so it belongs to the iconic Peugeot 406.
