RE: The tariff classification of a quartz digital wrist watch/pendant watch 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 #66211, "The Swan Princess Interchangeable Watch & Locket Watch," is a child's wrist watch/pendant 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 heart-shaped watch case opens to reveal the opto-electronic display on one side and a mirror on the other. The plastic bracelet consists of a double row of imitation pearls and can be detached from the watch case. The top cover of the watch case depicts a swan and a prince and princess in the form of a hologram. A plastic bow adorns the top of the watch case.

A textile neckcord, which is included in the blister package, can be attached to the watch case to create a pendant watch.

Your sample is being returned as requested.
