You won’t be disappointed mate it’s an absolute stunner. I looked at getting new from Japan too but the estimated import fees of £400 which I would rather put towards the bracelet. Speaking of which, I have found a place that can source one for $525 but there is a 3-6 month lead time.

Am I the only one who doesn't like the font they use? Reminds me of some kind of nazi font (Fractur) from Mein Kampft or something!

Unless its supposed to, I don't really know the story behind them!

Lovely watches though, that just puts me off.

I said exactly the same thing. I imagine it's one of those things that tests well in JP but doesn't translate.

They think "ancient wisdom", we think "theme restaurant".

Congrats, thats stunning, totally agree the strap doesnt suit it though, I think the case would go well with black rubber or leather too.
