Always take any automated messages on FJ with a pinch of salt. I don’t think I have ever encountered a listing on Yahoo Japan Auctions that truly was pick up only. If you translate the description for this one, it’s clear that they will ship!

🤔 What was it that made it “obviously a struggle”?

I only know what I’ve learned here - the movement quality scale, three times more late dial 44’s etc. Now news from your upcoming trip to Japan is eagerly awaited
