Christmas 2012

I saw this currency rates last Thursday, but forgot to out it on my weblog. That are nice looking rates. I hope the currencies will devellop this way next year. 
Back to today's rate's. Not much spectacular, although the US$ dropped a bit, until just above $1.32 per €1.00
It's good the Euro went up a bit since a few months ago. I reserved two watches in Japan. All inclusive price was ¥45500. I added a little for the seller, so he can buy a beer on my cost next time he visits a bar. So I paid

Total price: ¥46000
Conversion Rate (Payal): €1.00 = ¥106.934
Charged from my bank account: €430.17.

Week 50, Weekend December 15 /16 2012

After a little peak in September the Euro dipped just under $1.29, but it seems now the Euro will stick above the $1.31. Also important to me, the Euro is also almost ¥110. I'm used to calculate myself rich by just subtracting two zeroes from the end (¥10000 = €100), but this year most of the time this wasn't the case, as Paypal does uses a less favorable rate. It's a pity, as I have bought some quite expensive G-Shock watches this year (Frogman, Bape). Let's hope the Euro will repack a bit of it's strength in 2013. 
I bought a two watches at one seller a few weeks ago (Nov 29).
Price was ¥22000,
conversion rate Paypal: €1.00 = ¥102.155,
taken from my bank account: €215.36.
