SEIKO EPSON will be released

SEIKO EPSON, Co. was the current OEM up until now,and made the that sells the Seiko brand name watch for the SEIKO WATCH company.

In other words, even though they have the name SEIKO on it, there are many watches that were actually produced by SEIKO EPSON, Co.
Astron, Grand Seiko Quartz, Springdrive....

Now, SEIKO EPSON is, for the first time, producing watches under its own company name.

This new brand is called "Trume".
Trume means "True" + "me"

  • Barometer,
  • Altimeter,
  • Compass,

  • Ultraviolet index
  • Temperature
  • Pedometer
  • Calorie consumption. 

Prices range from 240,000-280,000 yen ($2,150-$2,500 USD).

SEIKO EPSON, Co. has accumulated all of the latest technologies from producing SEIKO brand watches.
So they made the new "Trume" brand that utilizes all of those technologies.

SEIKO EPSON didn't inform its affiliate company, SEIKO WATCH, Co., that they would be selling their own brand of watches.

SEIKO WATCH, Co. thinks it is good for SEIKO EPSON, Co. to challenge creating its own business, and is keeping an eye on them.

I bought a waterproof iPhone case for an ocean beach trip.
It was only $6.99 USD and came with a lifetime warranty!!
I had a lot of fun taking photos with my SEIKO Blue Sumo looking out at the ocean. 
You can't take underwater photos with this case, the shutter button has to be above water to work.
 

How we pack watches.

How we pack watches.

This is the method we use for packaging watches that we send from SeiyaJapan

We place a large air cushion film into an outer paper box, and although it wasn't shown in the video, we also wrap the watch box in bubble wrap.

Packaging methods will vary depending on the watch box, but this is out standard packaging method.

I get the 125 cc motorcycle license today.

I get the 125 cc motorcycle license today.

I went to a 2 person motorcycle license that I could ride together with my wife in order to avoid traffic congestion.

You can ride up to a 50cc motorcycle with a regular Japanese drivers license.
But it cant fit 2 people, and is only allowed to go up to 30 kmph.
You have to wear a helmet, of course.

So I spent 10 days studying in a classroom in order to get the next category up 125 cc motorcycle license.

It cost me about $700 USD, but I got my license today.

But it seems that I have to wait a year after getting my license before I can ride with another person...
