India import duties for HS heading 9101 wrist watches, pocket watches and other watches are 16% plus other duties and taxes that may be required.


No claim that articles are chargeable with a preferential rate of duty (maybe UK) shall be considered by the Customs in respect of articles imported by post, unless at the time of arrival in India, such articles are covered by a declaration as to the country of origin entered in the customs declaration form.

Hi Sir,   I have ordered a wrist watch from UK. I paid 110 British Pounds as the price for the  product and shipment cost. It is a electronic equipment and have a voice recording capability. They call it wrist watch voice recorder.


(1) Will it be considered as a consumer electronic good or spy-equipment when I import it to India from UK?


(2) In both the cases what will be the import duty when I receive it from the courier agency at Bangalore?


(3) If the manufacturer ships this item from his China warehouse then what will be the duties?


(4) Are there any other duties to pay like VAT or something.


Thanks and regards in advance.
