Here are the alternate day wheels from my meagre collection, I rarely use the english ones (I reckon that I know what day it is most of the time...)
Ah-ha, this explains why I saw a pic of a watch where, instead of the day, it stated: sex.

It was Portuguese! It's almost a disappointment to find out, actually. . .

Kanji rocks. I cant believe it. I've got a few Japanese watches now, and not one of them has a Kanji option. When i get my 5, I'm going to try to get one with a Kanji option day wheel.

This is a long shot, but does anyone know of a conservatively styled 6119 powered 5 with a kanji option date wheel??? :-d

Anyone?


Anyone?

Hey your as sane as any of us are, so go Kanji all the way!

Alex has a cool chart below, you might want to just give these few other lanuages he shows a look see.

Cheers & no your not crazy at all man,

日 Sunday - Sun - Nichi-yobi
月 Monday - Moon - Getsu-yobi
火 Tuesday - Fire - Ka-yobi
水 Wednesday - Water - Sui-yobi
木 Thursday - Wood - Moku-yobi
金 Friday - Metal - Kin-yobi
土 Saturday - Earth - Do-yobi

Friday's kanji can also mean "gold", so I use it to mark paydays on my calendar, though there's not too much gold in the paycheck. :)
Very cool...thanks!
