I hope this is in the correct forum. I'm working on a deal for Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine Diver which is located in Eastern Asia (confirmed authenticity with full box, papers, and some very nice up close pictures to look through). My one concern is this: if I end up getting this watch, I am absolutely stricken with fear at the prospect of having this thing shipped over here and possibly damaged/stolen (definitely more so stolen). The seller listed as standard shipping to US, but if this works I'll definitely be getting it registered and insured on its way over here just to be safe.
Can some people who have purchased higher end pieces from overseas comment on this and just tell me about your experience?
Also, as a side note, how was it handled with customs?
Anyone, please let me know about your experiences!
