    Back in late March/early April I went to Japan and took the watch with me. Some pics...

    The watch arrived in my mailbox today, safe and sound. The compass doesn't work for beans, it would be nice if I can at least figure out what's going on with that. Watch this space!

    I'm wearing her to work today. Pretty nice weather in Portsmouth right now, I'll have to get a shot showing the view out over the water. We're fortunate to have one of the best views of any of the offices in town. For now, a desk shot:

    Those Grados sound great but aren't very comfortable, if anyone is curious about them. I got them in exchange for repairing a TV.

    Our second and third stops were Kyoto and my mom's hometown of Miyazaki:

    In Kyoto:
    The Kyoto Tower
    Kinkakuji-jo
    Nijo-jo
    Fushimi (known for it's thousands of arches)
    Fushimi (one of the first arches)
    Gion Corner (known for it's Geisha performances)

    In Miyazaki:
    The Aeon Mall (wanted to show the superiority of the WTW against the almighty G-Shock)
    Aoshima arch (a very interesting beach that was formed by quickly cooling volcanic lava and then shaped by the waves)
    A close up of what the rocks look like
    Literally looked up from the previous picture's spot and took a panaromic of Aoshima

    Re: WUSF6 Watchmakers of the World Watch Tour

    My apologies for a photo-less update, but there will be pics to follow soon! The marks around the inside and outside of the compass module make it pretty obvious it's been a battle for someone to remove in the past. I found it came easily when pressed out from the rear. Removing either of the crystals from the module is going to take some thinking, though. I was hoping a small suction cup would pull out the inner one, but no luck there. There is a mark by the inner crystal where it appears some prying with a very small tool was done at one point, but I can't imagine it was successful. It's a shame there's not a small hole through the plastic housing from the inside, because a little air pressure would probably pop one of them right out. I'll put on my thinking cap, but in the meantime any suggestions are welcome.
