    Anyone speak Japanese?

    I'm hunting for a bezel for a 8600 Fisherman and its proving difficult. While on the google hunt I found this page - but I olny do basic french which isn't much help - anyone out there know a useful language?

    http://page8.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/h56246527

    Anyone know what it says and if you can buy from this site?

    Thanks for your time.

    It's Yahoo Japan auction, and the seller stated that he/she will not ship internationally.

    u can use a middleman but they charge you a fee and extra for shipping from japan to ur country (apart from the winning bid and local japan shipping)

    Thanks for the info Kevin. Had a quick look at the site - what are the charges like as it looked complicated!

    With shipping around, what? $20+ USD (EMS Speedpost is the best option IMO) plus their fee, maybe another $10-15 USD, it can be a little spendy but if it's a must-have, well... it's a must-have then, innit? If you can stomach adding maybe an extra $25-$30 to the price (being conservative) that's usually what it costs having a 'middle-man' company buy something for you off of Yahoo Auctions Japan. Btw, there's also Rinkya and FromJapan Ltd. that will act as your proxy. Rinkya is good because they have a translation feature that let's you see the yahoo auctions with the english translation on the bottom. The translation is much better than just going thru google I've found.

    4900 yen divided by 110 = $44.54+ wire fee $2.50 + commission $12 + internal postage maybe 330 yen + $3 say roughly $62 + cost of shipping to UK I reckon total cost of £40 so like the other member said if it's a must have.
    Maybe there is a member here on the forum that could aquire the bezel for you cheaper?
