Dear Mr. Bose:

In your letter dated July 22, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling on the Rolex Submariner 16610.

A description of the watch was submitted with the ruling request.

The item for which you are requesting a classification ruling is identified in your letter as the Rolex Submariner Watch, model 16610.

The rate of duty will be $1.53 each plus 4.2 percent ad valorem on the case plus 9.8 percent ad valorem on the strap, band or bracelet.
