4. Buy watches ;) well if u find something u like at the right price. they have a decent selection and they were friendly to the raphmeister which is why its here on timetapestry. [ there were some shops in tokyo which weren't unfortunately... long story ]

Ok another place i managed to check out was douze 12. i had chanced upon it on the net as it was noted as an AD for vianney halter and u know i can always see more vianney halters yuh ;) but reaching there, there were none in sight so i got pics of some of the other interesting watches on display... some directions to the place below...

1. Go to Tokyo Metro Ginza Line to the Gaienmae station exit 1A

2. head down the path where u see this bridge....

3. turn left when u see the sunrider shop...

Now i suggest only going here if u have loadsamoney though as some of the watches are pretty pricey... eg. this blingy guy had a price tag of 16+million yen!!!

First of all, I love your blog, it's inspirational and you have a very distinctive taste looking at watches. Recently, I came across a pre-owned Harry Winston Dual Time Z4 in Zalium and would like your take for this piece. FYI, I have a Panerai 233 and a ROO rubberclad in my collection, should there be other choices to add to this young collection. Joseph from HK (swjoseph@gmail.com)
