    Zenith watch on ebay

    I find it funny some of the things the Japanese post when describing a watch, as the title says, I saw this on ebay.



    << About degree notation >>
    N ... It is a state of intact article. It is a flowing item.
    S ... It is a beautiful item just like a new article, or only a small scratch.
    A + ... It is a very good product with only minute to small scratches. (Finished items will also be included)
    A ... There are somewhat small to medium scratches, but they are products of good quality. (Finished items will also be included)
    B ... It is a commodity where a small to slander can be seen quite a bit.
    C ... There are many small to slander, it is a commodity that can also see a big scratch.

    I don't find it so funny.

    Maybe if you try writing something in Japanese, that might bring out a few laughs.

    This is what can happen when Google translate or similar is used.

    The original context has likely been lost in (poor) translation.

    Yep, auto translators work well for some languages, but but the logosyllabic Japanese writing does not translate well to our phonetic alphabet.

    I definitely wondered if a translator was involved.

    Plenty of legit dealers on ebay my friend. Govberg sells there and here. Price wise, maybe not the best, but I would be comfortable getting the real deal from them.
