    Question Thinking of buying a watch from CAN to US, what do I need to know? Customs? Fees?

    Hey guys,
    I was thinking of buying a watch from a guy in Canada and having it shipped to me in the US. Someone mentioned to me some concerns in regards to customs, and fees etc...
    Can someone explain what I might be in for? What to be concerned about? A preferred shipping method?
    I've purchased from Davidsen in JPN and had no issues with customs or fees...
    Thanks in advance guys!
    Chris:thanks
    Cheers,
    Christopher

    I think other than it taking an absurd amount of time, you should be fine.

    I was explained that there would be handling fees, import duties, etc...Can anyone expand on this?

    As far as I know that's just added money to the price. Like taxes. It's not too absurd a price diff, but it's noticeable.
