    Tactician arrives... (pics)

    Well just picked up my MR-G Tactician at the post office, there is a bit of a story to this one.
    A while back I used to quite often bid for things on Yahoo.jp through fromjapan, sometimes I would get some nice bargains other times I would get nothing Well I recently was browsing through Yahoo again and a couple of items caught my eye so I went onto from japan website to have a bid (I had to get my password re-sent too as I had forgotten it!) the site has changed a little from the last time I visited but the first thing I noticed was the summary said I had won 1 bid and I had not even started bidding on anything yet... When I clicked on it the page said it was a MR-G Tactician I had won for 10,000jpy, there was no picture as the auction had ended on 1st March 2009!!
    It seems I had completely forgotten about the auction but I cannot remember getting an email from them? Last year was not a good year for me, I split with my fiancee amongst other things and I had a lot of things on my mind shortly after March time and did not get a lot of internet time.
    Anyway, I owed charge 2 payment and thought to myself should I or should'nt I? Thinking the item would be possibly lost after 15 months, as well as that I had completely no idea what condition it was in or indeed whether it was in working condition? I paid anyway and got an email the following day with a tracking number (on 1st June exactly 15 months! lol
    I thought the battery would be dead but it is'nt!

    If any kind members have a spare link they would like to sell or I would gladly trade links from a MR-G frogman bracelet? I would appreciate it as the band although wearable is a little tight for comfort at the moment

    This is it, straight from the box - no manual, tags, nothing...
    MR-G 1000T









    Quite a nice surprise

    Wow. That's a crazy story. I guess that's really good customer service (if only they had properly notified you back then ).

    It looks like a great G-Shock. Good luck with finding a link for it. I have no idea where you would buy one, so hopefully someone here has an extra one lying around.

    Great story! And a pretty solid deal. I wonder what FromJapan must have thought when that payment finally came in. Here's to hoping more things are looking up for you now.
