I am new to this forum and have a question for clearification. On the Stowa site it says that they have the option of taking care of customs and taxes if a certain price is paid and if the watch is discounted at 13.5% (VAT) the buyer will have to deal with customs and taxes on their own. My question is will I not have to pay for duties and taxes when the watch arrives in Canada either way? (I have purchase only one watch in Germany (Archimede) and I paid for duties and taxes when the Fedex person dropped off the watch.) Btw the watch I'm looking to pull the trigger on is the Marine Original. Its a beauty!!!
