The Watch Thread

So a small update to my story of importing a mechanical watch from Ali. (Rolex homage) My watch has been stuck with customs for more than two weeks now and I finally have received a show cause notice from them.

Its very scary to receive a legal notice like that especially for the fact that this is my first high value item that I have ever imported. Really worried on what do right now. Anyone else have had prior experience with this?

A super huge shout out to@Black_Hawk who has been so amazingly helpful in helping me with every single step of shipping, his amazing collection of watches that he posted on this thread was the prime reason for me to decide to get my first ever mechanical watch but looks like luck hasn't favoured me much [emoji17]. He has been painstakingly helping me draft a reply for customs notice.

I really hope i get my watch soon.

Can't u just pay them customs and release it?
I was actually expecting the shipment to have customs charged and was mentally prepared for it, problem is this show cause notice means that they won't release it till I show cause to them.

Hmm these guys are tightening the screws on Aliexpress stuff too. Best is to write back saying that xyz was amount paid for goods, and gift was probably a mistake from seller side. You can then pay the customs.

What's strange is that they say that the declared value is 0, when that's just not possible, I know for a fact that the seller undervalued the item but did not mark it 0 because even he is not that stupid.

You think I should email them or send a written letter?

It says you have 10 days to do it so i would say to go directly to the customs/post office with a written letter. 

Didn't knew customs were capable of such thorough investigation.

If the watch isn't expensive i wouldn't go through the trouble. Pretty sure if they are not satisfied with the documents, they will charge a hefty fine for undervaluing and stuff.

Problem is that their office is very very far away from me and it's not possible for me to go there especially on weekdays as they are closed on Saturday and Sunday. That's why thinking of writing an email instead. But I don't even know if they actually read emails or not.

While I'm waiting for the Seiko 5 to arrive, got this from Amazon

Not exactly appropriate for my wrist size. But then, nothing really is.

 

Congratulations my friend! It looks very easy on the eyes and that dial is particularly calming. Wear it in good health and enjoy it. :)

Hope your Seiko arrives soon!
