RE: The tariff classification of a quartz analog talking wrist watch and metal box 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 #64201, "Power Ranger Talking Watch," is a child's wrist watch containing a battery-operated, solid state, mechanical watch movement in a plastic case with a plastic strap. The watch dial bears a picture of a Mighty Morphin Power Ranger. The theme song of the Power Rangers can be heard by depressing a button on the side of the watch case. The watch is contained in a metal octagon-shaped box which measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 2 1/2". The lid bears a picture of the Power Rangers and the words "Might Morphin Power Rangers."

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the wrist watch will be 9102.11.45, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for wrist watches, battery powered, whether or not incorporating a stop watch facility: With mechanical display only: Having no jewels or only one jewel in the movement: Other: Other. The rate of duty will be 40 cents each plus 8.5% on the case plus 2.8% on the strap band or bracelet plus 5.3% on the battery.

The applicable subheading for the metal box will be 7310.29.0050, HTS, which provides for Tanks, casks, drums, cans, boxes and similar containers, for any material...of iron or steel, of a capacity...of less than 50 liters. Other. The rate of duty will be Free.

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.
