customs question

What's the longest a watch has been held in customs before being released? I'm at 10 days now and counting.

Probably a week during the CP strike

I once had one sit for 15 days in NYC before the tracking showed it moved to the next location.  I fully expected "the letter" after the first week.

Literally an hour after I posted this, tracking changed to show it's been released. Should arrive Monday. That's the longest I've had something sitting with CBSA.

Was this Chicago customs?  I have one been sitting there since 3/29/2019  (11 days now and counting...)

I have two different packages sitting there.  One since March 31 and another since March 27.  What the hell are they doing up there?  :Waiting:

Wow...so one before me and one right after.  I bet they're all sitting in the same pile right now....

What's the average "release" time for the hold?  3 weeks?  Or is it gone/seized now?

Actually, the longest I've waited (I actually posted it above to the OP) was 15 days, but that was going through NYC.  The one from the 27th is a Cartier rep sent via FedEx (Marvellous's suggestion) and the one from the 31st is a couple of cheap, non replica watches from AliExpress sent via Honk Kong post.  I think they might sit a little longer on shipments from China, I dunno.  I'll just keep waiting :lol:  Gotta have patience here.

Oh wow.. I'm very happy for you.  Mine is still stuck though :( but thanks for letting me know.  

Hmmm...since yours 3/27 and 3/31 were released and mine is right in between yours 3/29 without any movement.  Mine may be in trouble.. :(
