Sent without invoice, thence a return trip, and more than two weeks of waiting.Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.First time shipping to Switzerland. I didn't know that three copies of an invoice had to be pasted on the box, such as international shipping. This was the reason for returning to the sender. I am very sorry for this delay
