RE: The tariff classification of a quartz digital wrist watch and analog alarm clock from China.

Dear Ms. Powers:

In your letter dated February 14, 1995, on behalf of Hope Industries, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Item #58792, "Polly Pocket Collectable Watch and Clock Set," consists of a child's wrist watch with calendar function containing a battery-operated, solid state, electronic watch movement with a liquid crystal display (LCD) in a plastic case with a plastic bracelet. The watch case, which is in the shape of a heart, opens to reveal the opto-electronic display.

The battery operated analog alarm clock measures approximately 3 1/4" in diameter with a plastic case. The dial has a picture of little girls reading bedtime stories.

The watch, along with a 3/4" plastic figure of Polly Pocket, and the alarm clock is contained in a blister display package.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The wrist watch and the plastic figure of Polly Pocket is a composite article.
