The importation of luxury items is subject to customs declarations. If you have a duty-free exemption, you will not have to pay the applicable duty on goods you brought into the USA. Rolex Submariner do not qualify for this exemption since it is limited to $800 per person.
If you exceed your US customs limit, your watch won't be taken, and you will just have to pay duty. Internationally purchased watches must be declared.
Whether they're from duty-free shops at the airport, a jewellery store, or gifts you received, it makes no distinction.
Does it still make sense to save a small percentage in Switzerland Duty-Free? Imported goods are also subject to state and local taxes. Trying to avoid US Customs duty is a criminal offense. The Customs and Border Protection (CBP) may seize the wrist watch if you're caught trying to smuggle it.

Affordable is not how people would describe Submariners but when it comes to design, functionality, ceramic bezel, caliber and materials it is a collection that delivers. A generation of enthusiasts marvels at the green bezel, the perfection of the oyster bracelet, crown and dial.
However lucky is the boutique will have one in stock. Owning only one stainless steel reference is a great achievement for a Submariner fan.
Submariner wristwatches are available in several styles and materials: stainless steel, yellow and white gold and two tone yellow Rolesor. There is a Date reference with the magnified cyclops lens and a No Date reference.
Some are very popular like the stainless steel model, and others are more expensive like the yellow gold. The evolution of the winding crown or the ceramic bezel and the addition of the Date on the dial are many reasons this stainless steel aquanaut tool has become legendary. Their sport timekeeper are known to be expensive. In the 1950s they become famous for their ocean diving gear for a scuba diving professional and amateur, most exactly for making a diving watch offering one of the best water resistance available at the time.
Outstanding luminous dial, waterproof watch case, incremental ceramic bezel, triplock crown and date window magnification have become iconic. Their concept and construction have become design blueprint and gold standard reference for water resistant watch manufacturers.
Rolex resistance to environmental elements and the provenance of the collection are factors that contribute to it perception. Cerachrom was also a turning point adding color to the reference. The green bezel is one of the most popular design.
The mainstream archetype is to view the design to be classic. Production was careful by only replacing design elements with new evolution from their own research and manufacturing expertise.
Two tone ceramic reference is kept for another collection. Oyster bracelet is maintained thought the production; never add the Jubilee bracelets to mixte with the initial stainless steel one. Submariners are warranties to hold to the historic design and style set in the 50s.
Anniversary reference keeping it alive from crown to caseback and not forgetting function. Production cycle will be finished at a boutique where a fan will have the opportunity to hold this great caliber.
At the time a diving explorer could finally get an underwater clock with unique water resistance depth ratings, a large dial diameter with a lug suitable for a wetsuit, tritium chromalight hands, a unidirectional graduation bezel and a waterproof winding crown, components, features and functionality not available on the market.
The Rolex submariner features have evolved over time. The watch DNA and functions have remained the same, but the ceramic bezel, caliber, winding crown and materials have been improved. Its original design did not have a date window on the dial.
Water resistance has also been improved from the original 100 meters depth rating to the standard 300 meters found in the current reference. The Glidelock is a nice addition to the oyster bracelet.
Rolex Submariner anniversary edition with uncommon elements can incrementally increase in worth for a Submariner fan. Ceramic bezel color, specific caliber, bracelet and crystal are all mechanical details that differentiate a reference from another collection. Waterproofing and gliding on colored gold are the same any stainless steel reference.
Rolex has stop using Tritium replacing it with Luminova lume both for seconds, minute and hour hands. Tritium dials have become sought-after vintage pieces when the aluminium unidirectional, the winding crown and the sapphire crystal are in good affair. Vintage Submarines with date or not are collectible but also pricey to own and restore.
Vintage Rolex Submariner makes sense for collectors and in my opinion, should be avoided in you are looking for a nice timepiece to wear regularly. Vintage Rolex submariner value are the original components remaining in good condition.
A specific vintage spare component can be hard to source and costly. The maintenance must be done by a vintage watch specialist and require a high level of knowledge and craftsmanship.
Vintage bracelet, aluminum bezel, dial, and calibre are no longer in stock, and counterfeit will seriously devalue the watch secondhand value. Therefore before you consider buying a vintage Rolex submariner, make sure you know what you are doing. Over time the collection has become a mainstream status symbol so desirable with their underwater ocean DNA. Their reputation is not only built on James Bond films, their Cerachrom bezel and a green bezel but also on several innovations such as reliable automatic Oyster Perpetual movements, clasp glidelock link, cerachrom bezel.
Design and bracelet materials are a factor that impacts Submariner expense. They are available in yellow gold, yellow Rolesor and Oystersteel. Diamonds settings are components not used on a Rolex Submariner, none the less they are available in precious metals including two tone yellow gold and white gold.
However secondary market favour the Oystersteel Rolex Submariner made of stainless steel, especially with a green bezel or even a blue bezel. Secondary market value has seen a bigger increase and demand for them. Yellow Rolesor Submariner could be seen as more of a niche piece.
A Rolex Submariner has a screw-down caseback design that seals the caliber in a waterproof case that protects it against moisture and dust. The ceramic bezel with graduations is made of cerachrom. The material provides a good level of water resistance. Winding it is to fall in love with it.
The Rolex Submariner is design with an automatic movement that can also be wound manually. Winding it is done clockwise using the crown. The Submariner Date ref. 16610LV was released by Rolex in 2003 to mark the Submariner's 50th anniversary. An aluminum green bezel inlay is the most distinctive feature of this reference.
