    Ask for a full image with the back off. I can see some corrosion and usually when they post images with the ends unseen. It's usually a problem

    Not judging the watch but Japanese are not as receptive to haggling as us.

    I'd make 1 offer at max price you would consider, mentioning all concerns in an apologetic manner.

    I'm not being negative, just trying to bridge the cultures.

    they are certainly unique folks. I remember from my travels there that they are a very polite sort of people even when they kicked us off the subways to prepare for track repairs and examines. they also chased after us offended because we left a tip on the table.

    Case corrosion between lugs is very common with these SS models, be careful.
