The Euro now is above the $1.30 barrier. Let's hope this trend continues.

I had to pay a new purchase from Japan. Pretty pricey, but luckily the Euro is getting back a little. Still the Paypal rate is much lower.

Two watches were bought in Japan. They were not the cheapest, though it was a very good bargain.
Total price: ¥71000
Conversion rate: €1.00 = ¥95.8669
Paid: €740.61

September 6, 2012

Not much happened since the last update, but recently I see the Euro crawl slowly higher compared to the US$ and the ¥. Let's hope this is an ongoing trend, as the low Euro was quite nasty in my purchases from Japan and East Asia. It's the 30th Anniversary of G-Shock next year and new Anniversary models are going to be released in Japan. It's quite a difference from the time I got ¥13000 yen for €100, specially as we are talking about models costing ¥47000.
