U can always ask the shop to box it up, so that you can check it in.
I don't think the airline will allow you to hand carry it.

Ask the counter staff. If you're flying by SQ, i think you can handcarry it. The crew will store it for you. I have seen it done before, and hopefully the policy hasnt changed.

Check in as fragile items. 
I ever brought back 10 putters, packed together and checked in. 
So long your total luggage weight does not exceed your baggage allowance there will not be extra charge. Cheers.

You can hand carry into cabin for some airlines, but mostly they will take away from you and store for you, and return to you on landing.

Prices in Japan is very good now, make sense to buy Japanese clubs from Japan.

If you packed and checked in, you are subject to GST if the overall price exceed S$400.

Hi Turbo,

I don't think it's a matter of packing and checking in.

It depends how long you have been away from Singapore.

It's also very worthy to buy Rolex in Japan!

 This is interesting... roughly how much saving is involved?
