That is somewhat annoying, I agree.

Also...the brushed handset on the blue dial would have done for me! Alas, doesn't look like a combo they do...

Oooh...didn't spot the mix and match section...thanks Des!

Brushed hands are available...hmmm....

The only problem is I got blacklisted by FedEx for telling them to poke their retrospective customs and 'handling charge'.  Customs I was happy to pay but I pointed out their handling charge was contrary to UK law, which they accepted but couldn't issue an invoice without it it!

From memory, about a score.  The thing that got me was they happily delivered the goods, then sent me an invoice a couple of weeks later!

They accepted that the handling fee was naughty (yet they continue to sting those not up on such matters) but said they couldn't reissue an invoice without it.  I said send me a valid invoice and I'll happily pay.  They said they couldn't, I said I wouldn't, ad infinitum!

I'm no expert but something to do with there being no contract between the receiver and FedEx so there's no grounds to levy a charge above and beyond customs and excise. 

I thought I'd give it a go and they backed down after my first email....

Lovely pics that they are (and thanks for posting them here) I find it hard to make out that much of a difference between the brushed and blasted finishes.  I'm sure the differences are more stark in real life.

I think it's fair to say I am defo thinking of buying one of these I have never bought a new watch before they have always been used or nearly new , so how much would I expect to pay on a obris Morgan if the customs man bills me :aggressive: and what the normal eta

Figure on about 22% all in from my own experience.

Will let you know my experiences...:)

There's discussion on other fora as to whether customes will apply on Justin's fed Ex shipments.

Some say 'yes', others say 'no'. 22% is a good guide though.

All pre-orders have been filled for the moment...next batch due to for release in April...

You typically see OMs flipped for the list price when they first arrive. So if there are customs charges, the initial recipient takes the hit. Most buyers are in the USA though...

Thanks for the info.

I'm not so worried about the customs charges, more about me being blacklisted by FedEx and them not delivering because of it!

There is a real likelihood that it will get through without the charges, or so I am told.

Still not a bad price, all in. 

Justin has said that the yellow font on the dial matches the yellow second hand I chose, despite them being named differently on the Web page.  

Just the wait now...

Is it just me or what? all below copied direct from website (including spelling mistake) except for the smilies! 

Specification

Tactical type 200 meters water resistant Tool Diver

:yes:

 

Free Warranty does not cover the following types of damage resulting from:

C. Subersion in water :thumbdown:

I think that's more of a translation/understanding issue.

 

The watch is water resistant to 200m but damage will not be covered if its due to submersion and other factors have come into play ie damage/crown left open etc
