So, I've all but decided to purchase a pair of GG Grants but I was wondering what people in the US and Canada have ended up paying on top of the purchase/shipping price to have them shipped from the UK. I realize the US experience will be different than that for Canada. At 460 pounds including shipping for stock line Grants and after paying the government its duties and taxes, it seems to me that the investment is worth it.

I wear a Sinn EZM1 on my left wrist. That way the crown pushers do not poke into the back of my hand. When I dive, the pushers don't snag anything. I've always worn my depth gauge on my right hand. In addition to the Panerai Destro, Chronoswiss makes a Timemaster and Timemaster Chrono with large "onion" left-handed crowns.
