Digikey finally accepted to refund me ! And the 50 EUR are already on my PayPal account !
Everything ends well !
I just placed an order on TME.eu for the same amount (and without customs fee this time). But the Epson RTC is no more in stock for the moment. I'll have to wait a little more. Hope I taked all good "replacements" ^^
