    Updated:

    "2011-03-16 11:30 ( Japan time )Because the radiation quantities have dropped below the safety standards, our office has reopened, all the services are provided as usual. Except for the worst-hit area Miyagi and Fukushima, the domestic delivery of most of the rest of places has recovered. But FedEx still doesn't offer the overseas shipping service now, so please be sure to choose EMS as the overseas shipping if you want to receive your parcel promptly. We bear the insurance fee in the period of the disaster for all the EMS parcels."

    Buy the watches if you can or want. Especially from the big three (Higuchi, Seiya, and Chino) if you've been considering a JDM watch. I doubt they're gonna be seeing any local income for quite a while and that's how they mostly make their living. Now they're dependent on the international market. They helped make the Japanese watch community what it is today. All the Frogmans, Tunas, and many other exotic watches have been traded around and enjoyed by the members of this forum all due to them.

    Very true.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Donations definitely help them directly too. But yes buying watches over there does at least contribute to some income.

    I pulled the trigger on a JDM G yesterday.

    yes, the donations are very important. It's great if you can do both. If you can only do one, it's better to just donate. If you can also buy a JDM and have been planning to do so, I think it's better to buy directly from one of the big three or a proxy like From Japan, than a second hand watch on eBay.

    It's gotten harder lately, though. Now that the Yen has gone up in value. It's down almost 3 percent from yesterday, but still much higher than the week before.
