I go via which is the non-business reseller for DHL here in the UK. You can insure up to £1500 I think but to be fair I don't bother because a high declared value of the box potentially invites trouble. It would appear that American seldom or never pay any import duty anyway on a vintage watch. I suppose there is always a risk with it uninsured but Ive sent loads and never had a problem. Normally get delivery to California in 3 days.
