RE: The tariff classification of quartz digital wrist watch made in China

Dear Ms. Kwok:

In your letter dated January 8, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling. A sample of the quartz digital wrist watch was submitted with the ruling request.

The submitted watch, item number C3-47991C, is a wrist watch containing a battery-operated electronic watch movement with a liquid crystal display (LCD) in a rectangular plastic case with a plastic watch strap. The display features the month, date, day, hour, minute and second. There is a sliding plastic loop on the watch strap. The end of the watch strap is pulled through the opening of the loop to keep the end of the strap in place. The word “RALPH” is printed on the plastic loop. The words “RALPH LAUREN" are printed directly below the word “RALPH”. The wrist watch is packed for retail sale in a display package. The front of the rectangular package is made of clear plastic with a hollowed shape designed to hold the wrist watch. The back of the package consists of a cardboard instruction sheet. You have indicated that the watch is made in China.

You have also asked whether or not anti-dumping or countervailing duties are applicable for the wrist watch. Anti-dumping and countervailing duties are not applicable for this merchandise.

The applicable subheading for the wrist 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 free.

The applicable subheading for the plastic watch strap will be 9102.12.40, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for 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; other. The rate of duty will be free.

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

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Barbara Kiefer at 212-637-7058.
