WatchBuys Shipping Methods

US Shipping

WatchBuys is pleased to offer free UPS 2 Day delivery on all watch purchases of greater than $800 shipped to the 50 US states.

Shipments made using this method will arrive by the end of the second business day, while deliveries to Alaska and Hawaii may incur additional transit times, and in certain locations, we must use USPS Priority Mail.

Orders received on or before 5 PM ET on business days will ship that same day - otherwise orders will ship the next business day.

If you prefer to receive your purchase more quickly (the next business day), you have two options:

  • UPS 1 Day Priority will deliver your new watch in the morning or afternoon (depending upon your location), and this shipping option is available for $35.

  • UPS 1 Day Standard will deliver in the afternoon for commercial addresses and by early evening for residential addresses.  This shipping option is available for $25.

Or choose UPS Saturday for deliveries on Saturday morning or afternoon (depending on your location) for $45 on all watch purchases.

Please note that we cannot ship to forwarding companies.

If your purchase is less than $160, you have two shipping options to the 48 contiguous states:
  • UPS SurePost at a cost of $10 with delivery in three to seven business days.  This shipping method uses a combination of UPS and USPS services to deliver your package.

  • UPS 2 Day at a cost of $15 with delivery by the end of the second business day.

Purchases greater than $160 ship UPS 2 Day at a cost of $15 to all states except Alaska and Hawaii (we ship USPS Priority to those two states).

All packages with a value greater than $500 require a signature upon delivery for insurance purposes.

Canadian Shipping

Watches ship to Canada using UPS Worldwide Express, a next day delivery to most parts of the country using these shipping rates:

  • Watches valued over $1,200 ship for next day delivery at no charge.

  • Watches valued under $1,200 ship for next day delivery at a charge of $45.

  • Bracelets, straps, and other items ship for next day delivery at a charge of $45 to most areas of Canada.  Please note that in certain remote areas we must use USPS Priority which can take 7 to 10 days for delivery.

We pay all insurance charges in addition to the UPS broker's fees, while you are responsible for payment of the 5% Canadian national watch import duty plus any applicable GST/PST/HST taxes which will be collected from you by UPS Canada once your purchase arrives in Canada.

Canadian law requires that you be allowed to choose your own broker on each import - simply tell UPS that you would like UPS to act as the broker to avoid brokerage fees.

All prices shown on our web site are in USD - your credit card (or PayPal) determines the exchange rate to CAD.

Please note that delivery times to certain rural parts of Canada may incur additional delivery days from the estimates listed above.
