RE: The tariff classification of a table clock encased in China and/or Hong Kong with a watch movement made in Japan.

Dear Mr. Liberati:

In your letter of April 4, 1993, on behalf of Leeber Limited, Wilmington, Delaware, you requested a tariff classification ruling on a table clock.

The submitted sample is a table clock with a case in the shape of a country cottage measuring approximately 4" x 3 1/4". A clock is inset into the front of the cottage which is constructed of polystone. The clock measures approximately 1 1/8" in diameter, has a battery operated quartz watch movement and an analog display with second hand. There are no jewels in the movement.

The applicable subheading for the table clock with watch movement will be 9103.10.40, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Clocks with watch movements, excluding clocks of heading 9104: Battery powered: Other: Having no jewels or only one jewel in the movement. The rate of duty will be 36 cents each plus 6.9% on the case plus 5.3% on the battery.

The question of country of origin marking and special marking requirements for watches and clocks has been forwarded to Customs Headquarters for their direct reply to you.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
