Just ordered these two

Post by svaglic » Sat Nov 20, 2021 2:14 am

Late night with insomnia, so I went shopping.
Here is a close up of the Ginza Alpinist. Initially I wasn’t interested, then I saw they were impossible to get and were reselling for almost twice what it originally went for. Maybe it can be nice trade bait or maybe I’ll fall in love with it in person.

I’ve been wanting the Seiko Salmon dial for a while and I got it for new what they are selling for used.

Never mind. Jura sent all of us who ordered it a message saying that Seiko won’t let them mail to the United States anymore. Unless I have an address in the UK or Europe, I can’t get it.

It just occurred to me, that if I shipped it to someone in Europe or the UK, I would have to pay those taxes and VAT. Kind of negates the awesome deal I initially thought I was getting.

Saw it posted earlier today that Jura wasn't shipping the Ginza to the US, or any other Seiko evidently. Guess the 800 pound Seiko gorilla got on them.
