Import VAT - Buying from Germany

Hello,

I wish to buy a watch from a German retailer for about €‎400. I just wanted to check that I will be charged 7.7% import Swiss VAT plus DHL's administration fee.

Is there any other import duty that I will need to pay?

Many thanks!

I did. I spent 30 minutes researching but couldn't find a definitive answer.

No, assuming the sender will make sure the paperwork is in order. If customs won't like something and do something (e.g. inspect the package) - they will bill you for their time too
