I ordered the new CITIZEN X YUZU watch successfully at 12:07:24 (the sale starts at 12:07:00)!!!:clapping-smiley: I immediately re-checked the ordering page, it says "Out of Stock". What a competition! Basically, you need to fill up the ordering address beforehand, otherwise there is no way to buy it.

Lucky you. So it was gone within a minute?

Just raised it with my teen - NO WAY will they be asking their friend to help with that lol!! Oh well I tried....

 

Awww, that's too bad. I have a friend who has family in Hong Kong (or maybe China), and I'm tempted to ask for help to buy the watch too, but she's sometimes on questionable terms with those relatives though. :P Also, with the watch being a hot limited item, it's kinda hard to ask someone to click-battle for you to get it. :13877886:

 

I'm working from home and my office chair recently broke, so I'm looking to get a new one. The highly recommended office chairs seem to go for around $500 - $1000, and I'm like, "I don't want to pay that much for an office chair." :yznotimpressed:

On the other hand, the H&L Citizen watch costs 4580 yuan, which is about $720 USD, and I'm totally willing to drop the money for it even though I don't need another watch and I probably won't wear it much for fear of scratching it and stuff. Compare to the office chair, which I will use for many hours everyday. :embSwan:

My two previous blue mother of pearl watches are still stuck in China. I asked my Chinese friend to get them for me at Citizen shop in China. He got them but he was unable to ship it out to Brunei by air.Something to do with dangerous to ship by air as the watch has battery in it and the price was above 5000 yen.Its been one year plus now and i still havent seen my watches.I saw this H&L (universal) green face gold chain watch with yuzu's name in his handwritten chinese characters....make me wanted to get it! It is uncommon to own watches (with both English and Chinese signatures on separate watches) from a world famous male figure skater.Still have time to think about getting it ...who knows it might join its blue mother of pearl siblings in China:grin:

Kao has talked about Yuzu in his instagram live. My understanding is that his SP custome was indeed inspired by Yuzu’s Otonal and that he got goosebumps after learning Yuzu’s SP is rondo (from the pamphlet of NHK). He is also worried for Yuzu’s injury.

 

Such a sweet kid, so much potential this kid has. The true gem in the next generation of Japanese skaters. Only if JSF stops (super unfair) politicking for just one kid and lowballing others.

Not surprising. :tumblr_inline_mqt4grU8ua1qz4rgp:

 

Citizen should make Yuzu watches internationally available and in larger quantities. I'm sure they would also sell out very quickly. And his international fans could get their hands on them. :nod2:

Hooray Hooray, my chinese friend just paid 50 pounds as deposit to book one H&L watch at citizen shop in Chongqing.They have 5 pieces in the shop, 4 were booked earlier on and i got the last piece:wiggle: The salesperson at citizen shop, Chongqing was the same person whom he dealed with when he bought my two blue mother of pearl watches.She texted him today to inform him that there is a new limited edition yuzu watch soon to be on the market..thats really nice of her to do that. My chinese friend is still visiting relatives in Australia.Hope he can get back to china soon to get my watch from citizen.I really dont want him to get stuck in Australia bcos of covid pandemic.

The watch looks nice especially the H&L colour scheme of the watch face  - though I think silver would go better with these colours :P 

Zu is all about the 'gold'....that photo, he is so beautiful!!:volcano:

Oh now I understand why Tianmao always ship the watches by sea and there is no option by air. 

 

For international fans who want to try to get the watch, another option is to wait for Citizen to sell it via their official site on Tianmao. They did that for the last 2 watches. Yesterday sales were 127 pieces and looking at the serial numbers, there should be 1994 watches in total. Some will be available in store in China and some are likely to be listed on their Tianmao store. The problem with purchase via Tianmao is that they only do sea shipment (at least that's my past 2 experiences) and depending on where you live, it's gonna take ages. 

Oh another hurdle is you need to know Chinese to navigate the site.....

It's so pretty! Such a beautiful design. It's my favorite of the Yuzu designs so far. And it has diamonds on 12 and on 7. :heartpound:

 

I was first thinking that a silver color might have been a better fit for the Hope&Legacy color scheme. But then I realized that this is a Yuzu design. Yuzu and silver? Naaah! :tumblr_inline_mqt4grU8ua1qz4rgp:

 

I want one! How to get one?!? :studsmatta:

I second this question 😅😂😂😂

You can take the watches back to the Citizen store (or to any store that replaces watch batteries) and have them remove the batteries. Then you can ship the watches by air. You'll just have to buy new batteries when you receive the watches. It will cost more for shipping, but you can also try shipping each watch individually to stay below the 5000 yuan limit.

 

Just some ideas you can try. Hope you can get your watches soon!

Well, this is kind of dangerous. Does Tianmao accept foreign credit cards? Can you post a link to their website?

 

Currently due to the COVID disruption, our ports are all backed up and container ships are all sitting out at sea waiting forever to get their goods unloaded, so if they're shipping by sea, I'll probably see the watch... 2 years from now. :13877886:

And here it is. 

For those wondering what this is: a fan edit of an arrangement of Saint Saen's Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso for two pianos and Yuzu. Enjoy!! 

It's really interesting, and the music makes me picture a completely different type of movement than that in Otonal. Rondo seems expressly designed for the kind of light, quick foot movements that were really popular in fs in the 90s, but done in a prancier, almost kitten like fashion.

 

To put it bluntly, when I hear Rondo, the image that comes into my head is a playful, cute, whimsical kitty Zuru.
