    I didn't anything additional to what was on the WW site at checkout.

    It's certainly on the casual side of things, but I think it'll be fine. I work in a suit-wearing environment and half of my colleagues wear plastic fitbits...

    I can't wait to try mine out on a tweed strap, I think it'll look amazing with a suit.

    Maybe I'm thicker than usual today, but could you explain your math? The Stowa website prices the "regular Partitio" at 611.76 euro, which is about $692 US at today's exchange rate--for US and European customers alike, although the latter have to tack on the hefty VAT, of course.

    I had read elsewhere that FedEx delivers the watch to you as soon as they get it, and after that (within a few weeks) they then send you a bill for the duty tax. Kind of funny that they let you take possession of the item first before they charge for the duty. I wonder how many people abuse this system and leave FedEx holding the bag for duties (which I assume they pay as soon as they take possession of the item from the foreign seller).

    joeabroad you are most likely right. I did not subtract the EU vat.

    This is my past experience.

    Yes that does seem odd, what could they really do to keep you on the hook after you've already got your package? I'd be curious as to the business reasoning behind that. My only experience with this was when I bought a watch from Time factors and UPS would not release it to me until I had reimbursed them for the duties.

    I can't seem to find where I'd read it before, but someone else in the US who had ordered a Stowa direct got a bill for around $18 for the duties. I can't remember which watch it was now, though :/
