 NANJING, Feb. 19 (Xinhua) -- Customs in Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu Province, announced Wednesday that they seized 2,519 smuggled watches worth over 64 million yuan (about 9.13 million U.S. dollars).

The customs also arrested nine suspects for the watch smuggling with their counterparts in the province and south China's Guangdong Province.

Initial investigation showed that a suspect surnamed Tang purchased a large number of watches in Japan and smuggled them to China. Another suspect, also surnamed Tang, organized manpower to repack the watches and sold them online, according to the customs.

Further investigation is underway.
