I usually use USPS second day, and express shipping if the price of the item is over $1000. I do also use Fedex International.
What I charge for shipping usually only covers the cost of shipping.
I try to ship all items within 24 hours or less of receiving cleared payment.
If there is a delay in shipping most of the time it is due to the postal delivery.
I will not assume responsibility for lost or damaged items for customers outside the USA if the item is not insured. Also please be aware that any postal fees, and or custom fees that the importing country may charge you are your responsibility.
Please be an informed buyer and find out your local import regulations.
I ship at least 4-7 packages daily from internet sales and customers watches returned from repairs in and out of the USA and here is what I can offer as advice:
Within USA, Priority Mail is safe unless the item is valued over $1000, then Express is more cost effective due to the discount in insurance.
All items shipped to me should have insurance added.
Outside of the USA all shipping options have almost the same delivery times. Delivery times usually depends on the countries customs office and postal system. There are many countries to which mail travels fast and safe such as UK, Japan, Australia, Hong Kong and many others. There are also some countries to which the mail travels slower, such as Canada, Italy, etc. and to some countries mail is just not safe such as Mexico, Thailand, etc. Please keep in mind that once out of my hands most packages take 7-30 days for arrival. For customers outside the USA none of the shipping options below actually offer insurance so if you want a faster and safer guaranteed delivery (8 days or less) ask for Global Express Guaranteed with FEDEX. This usually costs anywhere from $50-$200 depending on the weight, destination and insured value. Shipping costs for inside the USA: Priority USPS $12-$18 Express-$19-$50 Shipping costs for anywhere outside the USA: Express-$30-$75
