Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

It is a watch, whether made of precious metals or not, which has a limitation of liability of $1000, regardless of the declared value. So according to the FedEX terms it would be covered only for up to $1000 as long as the value was properly declared by the shipper. So, if there was damage or loss, you have a problem that you need to take up with the shipper, because it is the shipper's liability (seller) until the package is delivered to you.
