Seiko watch shopping in Japan (Tokyo and Osaka)

Recommended Posts

I visited Japan a few months ago and watch shopping was on my list of things to do, of course. There are  a few department store chains that have all kinds of electronic goods in addition to watches. BIC Camera was my favorite as they have a very good selection with good prices.

There weren't really any real bargains but prices were lower than you would find in the USA. And as a foreign visitor, you can buy tax-free so that saves money as well. But the main draw was the very large selection of watches you often only see online. Seiko was no exception and it was just fun to browse and look at all the different models I had never seen in the metal before.

100 Yen is USD 0.94 / GBP 0,75. A quick way to convert for US shoppers is to remove 2 decimals at the end from the Yen price and subtract 10%. For example, 70 000 yen is 700 - 10% = US$ 630 (Real conversion is $655). Most of these pictures were taken at BIC Camera in Tokyo and Osaka, and show the tax-free prices. The first 2 pictures are at Yodobashi Camera in Shinjuku, Tokyo.
