1.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Watch But BEWARE...Not As Cheap As You Might Think!, 9 Jun. 2011
By 
Firstly, I'd like to say that I would rather not make the comments which follow in the review format, but it seems to me that it's the only reliable way to ensure that potential purchasers have the opportunity to read them. I suspect that whilst many poeple read reviews, very few also go to the comments section of a review.

The Invicta 8926 has had excellent reviews on many watch forum websites, and has become something of a "Cult" watch. The purpose of this review is not to comment on the product, which as I've said is clearly of good quality as demonstrated from other reviews, rather it is to warn potential purchasers that, although the Amazon page for this watch looks quite innocuous, it's only when you dig into the details of the seller, ICM, that you eventually discover that they are based in the USA. That's why some of the Amazon reviewers had to pay Royal Mail or Parcelforce in order to receive their goods; Royal Mail & Parcelforce act as collectors of import duty, vat etc on behalf of HM Customs & Revenue. By all means purchase through ICM...just be aware that your "bargain", is likely to cost you more than you thought once you've paid your dues this side of the Atlantic!

Thanks for the heads up, was going to order it before reading your comments.

Do you know how much the import tax, vat etc is?

Thank you £28 isn't that bad, I can't find this watch anywhere in UK shops.

I may be wrong as I need to research it more, but I believe you can buy this watch on amazon.com for $78.95 (around £50 June 11) and pay for delivery to the UK, $11.49. It should work out around £84 delivered (including the taxes), cheaper than the £121 (including the taxes) delivered from http://amazon.co.uk.

They do have UK sellers for the invicta you just have to shop around. There are UK dealers both on amazon and outside of amazon. Be very careful of the mark up because I have seen some that charge 22 pounds postage and then still expect you to pay the import charges.

Another option would be to buy from Europe as you dont pay import tax when buying in the EU as you have already paid their taxes.

Since my original comments in June 2011, it appears that this watch is now being sold through an American outlet, etailor UK (via Amazon UK) which states that it pays all taxes & duty. This suggests to me that it's now truly available in the UK for £75 total price including delivery. I'd be very interested to hear from anyone who has bought this watch, and had it safely delivered, for a total of £75. Thanks.

Yes these watches are now in the uk and can come the next day, So there is no taxes to pay. This is via etailor. I have just bought this very model and im very impressed. I will write a review in due course.

I got mine for the cheap price but I made sure that it was posted from England.

So the answer to your questions is Yes except for the fact I paid less that £75.

The watch shown now is fulfilled by Amazon and available for next day delivery with Prime. So it has to be in the UK and the price you see is the price you pay without any import charges or taxes.

Now fulfilled by Amazon in UK, so this doesn't apply.
