    How long have you waited for a watch to ship? (USA to Canada)

    Hey there fellow Canadians. Just wondering if any of you have ordered from the US and if you did, how long have you waited for your watch to arrive. I placed my order on April.9 and still have not received it. I'm getting a little antsy although today only makes it 6 business days. I was given up to 10 business days. What really bites is the fact that the seller just dropped the price of the watch by $50. Dang!

    It took my watch being sent to Alberta bout 10-12 business days, but there were some holidays in there, too. This was about 4 months ago. Mine was a private sale, though, so your mileage may vary.

    I've experienced a period of almost 2 weeks in some cases. As short as a week or just under at best. Even when shipped 2-3 day priority or some such, what that usually means that they only guarantee it will reach the border in 2-3 days. After that, it's up to customs, etc., which is where it starts to drag.

    I expect at least 2 weeks, closer to 3 weeks for packages coming from the US...especially when shipped by USPS. Whenever possible I will ask the seller to ship FedEx/UPS.

    What really kills me is that packages coming from Hong Kong/Japan take less than a week to me - shipped with their normal post.

    I shipped a watch to Canada via USPS, it took customs 3 weeks to clear it. Beware.
