    Anyone Heard From Higuchi Lately?

    Just let me start this by saying I'm not complaining about Katsu, I'm just trying to figure out what is going on. I have ordered from Katsu-san twice already, and I know several people here have ordered from him, so I know he is reliable.

    I'm not too concerned, but I did a request for an Oceanus model on the 5th of November, and got a response on the 7th. I made payment on the 9th. That is where our communication has stopped.

    Sometime last week, I believe on the 6th, I inquired about a Citizen model (limited edition 3,000/year) I'm wanting, and have not heard anything back on it. I actually e-mailed him a couple more times about that, and have gotten no response to any inquiry at all.

    I'm just wondering if he has a problem getting something, if he just doesn't respond, or if something else is going on, like he is on vacation or something. I have not heard anything back as far as shipping the Oceanus model since he told me how much it was (or after I paid for it).

    I'm just wondering if anyone has heard from him between the 8th and now?

    Hi Geogecko,

    Is there no watch fair in Japan at the moment. Maybe he's to a festival. I have had similar experience before. He appologized for being away for a similar occasion.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    I always give Katsu-san a week before I follow up on correspondence, and to this day, he hasn't let me down. Sometimes it takes him a whole week to get back to me, but he always does. I know he's close to a one man show at his shop and he has many responsibilities including trips so it's not easy for him to respond as fast as we sometimes like.

    Good luck.

    Okay, just checking. I'll hold off for a little while, and let him get caught up on e-mails, and not send him any more to wade through.

    I bought from him twice (Seiko Prospex) online before as well, everything turned out ok.

    I finally had the chance to visit his store in May this year, he is one busy individual, throughout the time I was there, the phone calls were non-stop, looking for him. Most courteous gentleman. Store is nice, has lots of different brands, damaging to the credit cards, imho.

    Hope this helps.

    I don't know how these guys could do this by themselves...

    ...that would be mayhem.

    If you have his phone number you could give him a call. I would, if I ordered an Oceanus from him.

    He gets 40-50 emails a day, apparently. It must take him a while to get through those as well as run a shop.

    Katsu-san is probably extremely busy, as he runs a shop also. Sometimes it takes a week or so for a response, but he is 100% gentleman and is 100% reliable.
