I live in the USA and my wife and I are visiting Prauge, Munich, Vienna, Salzburg, and Budapest on a 4-country, 5-city tour.
There are several AD's for Sinn in the cities we will be visiting, but the one that works out best for distance and time is Uhren Wimmer in Austria.
I would like to bring home a 556A on a bracelet. I am not really buying in the EU to save any money, or to get a better deal, I would like to come home with a meaningful souvenir of the trip and not a trinket or some other 'tourist junk'
On to my questions:
1. Any pitfalls to buying in the EU and bringing it back?
2. When it comes time for service, is there a USA service center? Or would I have to ship it overseas for service?
3. I've never bought something expensive enough to get a VAT refund and pay customs ... anyone familiar with that process, I could use some tips.
Thanks in advance
