    Why does Mail from Europe Clear Customs faster than Mail from Asia?

    I have ordered several watches and accessories which come from manufactures out of europe, Stowa , Laco , Steinhart... Several watches and straps, Usually they ship Economy / standard shipping, which comes as Registered Mail...Whenever I order from Europe, the stuff goes threw customs usually in 1-2 Business days.. Yet, whenever I order things from ASIA, it takesaround 7-10 days to clear customs always? I've had a package from asia sitting in customs for nearly 2 weeks now. Is there a difference depending on where items are being shpped from? I know more stuff probably comes from Asia than Europe threw customs, but I'm just wondering why does it take so much longer?
