as well as from the internetTuesday, July 30, 2013Had the opportunity to visit Tokyo Japan earlier this month. Before making the trip, I wasalready planning to get at least one Japanese watch, a JDM
model, to commemorate my first
trip to the “Land of the Rising Sun”.
I originally targeted a Grand Seiko but my eyes kept wondering towards the Alpinist. The greendial was too mesmerizing. Truth be told, this watch has always been in my radar screen for along time. Fate would have it; I was able to get a very good discount, a 35% off the standardretail price from an Authorised Dealer in downtown Tokyo.
The watch box is a long one and protected by a white cardboard box with no brand or logoprinted on it. Inside this is the main watch box.
