Amends the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States to revise clock and watch provisions to require the Secretary of Commerce and the Secretary of the Interior, jointly, for each calendar quarter beginning after January 1, 2002, and before January 1, 2016, to: (1) verify for the preceding calendar quarter both the wages paid by each producer to permanent residents of the insular possessions (including the value of any fringe benefits) and the total quantity and value of watches produced there and imported into the U.S. customs territory; and (2) issue to each producer a certificate for the applicable amount.

Directs the Secretary of the Treasury, at the election of the certificate holder, to pay to the holder the face value of the certificate, less the value of any duty refund claimed by the holder under the certificate, plus a discount of not more than two percent of the face value of the certificate as determined by the Secretary of the Treasury.
