To my Timexican friends who live outside the U.S., you'll notice that I offer free shipping within the U.S. I do that because the 2-3 day Priority Mail costs are less than $5.00 USD. Unfortunately when I checked on the cost for mailing to Europe and Australia the cost for Flat Rate International Priority Mail soared to $13.45 USD. I apologize for that outrageous shipping cost but I don't know anything I can do about it. One thing I promise I'll do is to subtract the domestic U.S. cost of $5.00 USD from your shipping costs leaving you with $8.45 USD to pay. By doing that I'm treating you the same way I'm treating a U.S. buyer. I hope that's fair.
