Man with $1.7 Mln Watch Detained at Moscow Airport

A Russian traveler was detained at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport on Monday, as customs officials found out he was carrying a gold watch worth 54.5 million rubles ($1.7 million) in his hand luggage.

      After arrival the man passed through the “Nothing to Declare” customs corridor. However the customs officers found him suspicious. While examinating of his hand luggage they found the diamond-encrusted Jacob & Co Rainbow Tourbillon watch together with a brand Jacob & Co box.

      According to the passenger, he received the watch as a gift in the United States and had no idea about of its actual cost. A merchandising examination shows the cost of such watch is about 54.5 million rubles ($1.7 million).

      According to the current Russia's tariff legislation, private persons must declare goods for personal usage, which cost is over 10.000 euro. A flat rate for such goods is 30 per cent of its market value. So, the passenger should have paid a customs duty for the watch at the rate of about 16 million rubles ($522 thousand).
