has anyone reading got recent experience of buying watches from the US (I live in UK)?
I have my eye on a watch on eBay which is fro a US seller (first jewellery source) and need to know how much duty/tax I would pay on a £2100 watch. See below for their international delivery blurb

There seems to be some real bargains to be had from buying outside the UK, but if something seems to good to be true there's usually a catch.
any advice will be most appreciated
