A couple of weeks ago, I’ve got contacted by @tamura though the forum. Some PM’s later, we realized that he lives not far from my travel route through Japan. A bit of research and sync, we managed to jump into the same high-speed train « Shinkansen » at different locations and share some time together, at 320 km/h, that has probably become the fastest ΩF GTG ever so far Obviously I didn’t bring any other watches whilst traveling beside my favorite 145.022-69 and my girlfriend’s Speedmasters but, as a local, @tamura showed up with some wonderful and rare Seamasters. A good half an hour ride taking watches and sharing our passion at a very high speed, we didn’t feel the time passing by, it was already time to jump out of the train to continue our own journeys. Once more, this forum allowed me to meet a collector and a great person who lives thousands of miles away from me and I can’t be thankful enough for that. So far, Japan has been an amazing country for traveling through but I’m very happy to have added a short watch-related chapter to our journey. Now back to incredible landscapes, gardens and sushis.
