Is it possible to get the Japanese Blue/black dial Overseas?

Are they long gone? Can I contact a Japanese AD?

Thanks--that's the best looking Overseas chrono ever IMHO. It could make me wear a VC casually!

What a great looking watch!!!!

I saw both of them for sale in Odakyu Dept. Store in Shinjuku (was there earlier this month). I am sure they are still available in other places if you look carefully. Try some Japanese websites and hope you can find one for sale. So many good watch shops there and they have websites as well but I think you may need our Japanese correspondence, Kazumi san, for help  I like the blue lettering version.

very cool watch! I sent you a PM with the

details of someone you can contact at VC Japan, you can also try calling all the AD's in Japan (details on the VC website )and see if they have one.

Do post scans if you find one!

Thanks Alex! I will give it a go. In the meantime, any 'real world' pics? It's sort of hard to tell if the minutes' track is 'textured' or if the subdials are equal sizes? Or closer to equal sized than other models? It may be the colors that are making it al work so well...

Any other diffferences besides the dial? Everything else the same as regular OS?

Thanks again!

I think I actually really want one now.

Let's see if I can get in touch with a Japanese AD now who speaks English!

Thanks Alex!

Thank you Rei!
