The theme for the week on my wrist was 'Japan'.  This is a bit of challenge given that I've never really got into Japanese watches (yet).  So as the week progresses, the connection to Japan gets more obscure.

Monday:  Seiko SKX023

My proper Japanese watch

Tuesday: Q&Q 2604

Japanese parts assembled in the Republic of Korea

Wednesday: Allwyn Y381

Made in India with A6319 movement supplied by Seiko

Thursday: HMT Pilot

Made in India from a licensed Japanese Citizen design

Friday: Qreini SK

A cheap clone of the Japanese Orient SK made in Hong Kong with a Soviet Slava movement

So as you can see, by the end of the week, I'd exhausted all my Japanese connections.

Maybe this year I'll find some more Japanese watches to expand the collection; perhaps a Tomony or a Ricoh or a Urika.
