For countries within the UK and the EU all our prices are shown inclusive of VAT. For the EU we operate a standardised euro pricing structure, with any variation in the VAT applicable between member states allowed for within the price you pay. Christopher Ward is responsible for paying the VAT collected at the point of purchase to the appropriate local EU authority.
Across our US$ currency site, product prices displayed are exclusive of customs duties and sales taxes.
Local Taxes: Local sales taxes will be added as you progress through checkout, depending on whether we have reached the tax threshold whereby we are legally required to collect local sales tax .
The states where we are required to collect sales tax are currently:
If your state is not mentioned above, it either means sales tax does not apply or we have not currently reached the threshold where we are legally required to collect sales taxes. Your purchase may be subject to state use tax in these other states.
Duties: Duties will apply where the total of an order is over US$800. We currently ship orders DAP (Duty at Port) and as a result you will be required to pay all duties and local customs charges before the product is released into your ownership.
For all other countries we ship DAP (Duty at Port) and all product prices displayed at checkout are exclusive of taxes and duties.
Once your order arrives at its destination you will be required to pay all import duties, customs, and local taxes before the product is released into your ownership. For an estimate of taxes and duties on your purchase, we suggest you contact your local customs office.
Local laws sometimes mean customs officials are obliged to request your Social Security Number and/or Tax Identification numbers. Where this is required DHL will contact you directly for the information.
We cannot refund any customs duties when you return your watch for a refund, but we will refund your sales tax when you return your watch.
Repairing or servicing a watch does not incur customs duties.
