    As an aside, this kind of misdescription can actually be counter-productive. I've experienced this myself. When coming into the UK, watches only...

    Yup, it's ridiculous isn't it. As you say, these regulations are not (as far as I know) really intended to affect one off shipments of small watch-size batteries and yet that is exactly what they do....

    To add to all of the above, Elta is the Greek postal service, i.e. equivalent of Royal Mail. So the item is most likely to be delivered by Royal Mail or Parcelforce at this end (depending on what...

    Considering that this is a return then, yes, it seems best by far to just lie and describe it as watch parts or similar. No warning labels. It will probably go through ok.

    Because bureaucrats love complicated and confusing rules that are all too easy to contravene. ;-)

    Yes they contain lithium rechargeable cells so are covered by the lithium regulations.

    As per (8) above, I went to this page, https://www.royalmail.com/russia, to check Russia's specific limitations.

    It depends on battery type. It used to be that specific battery prohibitions and restrictions were listed in separate documents but I note that Royal Mail have now combined them[1].

    Can anyone remind me of the name of the French(?) watch company selling oil filled watches with no crown? Very innovative designs, including magnetic linkages. They were discussed here a year or two...

    Thanks for the link.
