Dear Mr. Hashimoto:

You have submitted a photostat representation of item #10900, the Explorer's 6-in-1 Survival Watch. The watch features a digital time display, a compass, a thermometer, an alarm, a stopwatch, a signal mirror and a nylon strap with velcro closure.

The applicable subheading for Explorer's 6-in-1 Survival Watch will be 9102.12.80, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Wrist watches, pocket watches and other watches, including stop watches, other than those of heading 9101: Wrist watches, electrically operated, whether or not incorporating a stop watch facility: With opto-electronic display only: Other. The rate of duty will be 2.3% on the movement and case + 3.2% on the battery.

The applicable subheading for the nylon strap will be 9102.12.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Wrist watches, ...: With opto-electronic display only: Straps bands or bracelets entered with watches of subheading 9102.12.80 and classifiable therewith pursuant to additional U.S. note 2 to this chapter; all the foregoing whether or not attached to such watches at the time of entry: Of textile material or of base metal, whether or not gold- or silver-plated. The rate of duty will be 2.3% ad valorem.

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