Is anyone here from Canada? I'd like to get some advice regarding bringing in a watch from outside the country; dealing with customs and such. Prices here are far more higher than the US.
If you are buying new you will most likely get hit with duty, gst etc. I wouldn't be surprised if it was about 15-20%. No problems through Amazon though. If you buy used off TZ I would have it shipped via USPS priority post.
I paid customs fees on the first purchase just over 2k. It was about $100 in duty but I can't remember if the seller used a courier or USPS. My second purchase shipped through USPS registered mail was about $200 and I paid nothing.
I am still trying to figure customs out, but with other purchases, I find I have had the best luck shipping through USPS.
