Depends on what it is.

Normally, no duty, just VAT and charges.

Normally there is a duty - based on weight NOT value - ridiculously low. VAT @8% will have to paid on goods LANDED cost.

Yeah, those are the "administrative and handling fee" - rather arbitrary.

Hi,

Sorry to piggyback on this post but I have the same query. I plan on purchasing a second and watch in the ~ CHF 3500.- region from the states.

What customs/tax charges will I be subject to?

Cheers

8% VAT, plus around 100-150 in charges.
