Advice - Where to Buy SNKP21J1 Eastern Arabic Numerals?

I'm trying to track down a SNKP21J1. Asides from one listing on Ebay, and a couple on Souq who don't ship outside the Middle East, I haven't had too much luck. I'm assuming they were only sold in the Middle Eastern markets?

Do any of you more experienced guys have any insight as to where I might be able to find one?

Any help is much appreciated!

Where to buy Seiko SBDC 053?

I notice the price varies quite a bit from the world’s biggest retailer to the biggest online retailer to a Japanese retailer to an online retailer in my area.

Could someone PM where they bought theirs if they got a fair price, a good watch delivered fairly soon?

Haven't had any luck finding one yet, other than Souq, who don't ship outside the Middle East.

It's an absolutely huge ask, but would any members here in the Middle East be willing to forward on a package? Struggling to even find a parcel forwarding company.

My Seiko SKX 007 from Long Island watch has the days of the week in English and Arabic. That is as close as I can come. Is there a Seiko dealer that you can contact in Dubai or Saudi Arabia or even Israel that can help you?

Trust me I've tried! Contacted numerous AD's and even a few distributors and haven't received a single reply. Never in a million year did I think it would be this hard to get a hold of!

Why not buy it from the eBay seller?
You’ve also other sellers in Singapore, if you set your Google search to 50 per page (or look beyond the first couple of pages) — sgcarousell, internationalluxury.
If you want it badly enough, you’ll due your due diligence and take the plunge.

Hey guys,

I'm based here in Dubai and can help out any of those interested on having this watch. I can ship it out via DHL since my better half works for Emirates airlines and they have low rates for DHL.

Regards,

ProjectG

Thanks for the tip on International Luxury, managed to pick one up from there at a much better price. I somehow missed all the Singapore sellers in my search.

Thanks heaps for the offer ProjectG! Unfortunately I managed to find one online before I saw this. Appreciate the gesture though.
