Prospective buyers should be aware that the importation of luxury watches such as Corum or Rolex into the United States is highly restricted. These watches may not be shipped into the USA and can only be imported personally.
In addition, Christie's will remove the crocodile strap from the watch that is to be shipped outside Dubai, unless requested otherwise by the purchaser. Prospective buyers are however advised that several countries prohibit altogether the importation of property containing such material. Accordingly, prospective buyers should familiarise themselves with relevant customs regulations prior to bidding.
