    Just looking at a watch from Pride & Pinion at the moment and very tempted to pull the trigger but worried about DHL asking me for customs charges.

    Has anyone bought from P&P since Brexit that can confirm the usual Brexit taxes that would apply to buying from a UK source don't apply to Northern Ireland.

    Would you not make an appointment with them and drive up?

    Go up to them, I did it last year and it was grand although with Covid you dont go into the store. There is also no duty on goods from northern Ireland so long as the good originated in northern Ireland I think.

    It’s a Tudor Black Bay.

    To all those suggesting driving up, we’re still at level 5 and the watch could well be gone by the time we’re officially allowed up there!

    There is a BB on adverts for half decent price. Yes don't be bold and break lockdown.
