On the left is a 6106-8120.

On the right is what I think is a Matic Lady 2517-3260, not a "Poor Man's 62Mas".
that would be a damn nice variant on the 7005, but i didn't think it existed...

If anyone knows the person known as The Grand Seiko Guy, it would be great if you could convince him to share the entire 1968 catalog in pdf form.
wow, is that a 7005-8050 with a red bezel? were those actually made?
what a beautiful watch...

Seiko Hoarder Gerald, you're awesome!

I hope you can see your way to leave your watermark off the scans, or at least minimize them?

Hi,

That would be me.

My focus is purely on the vintage GS. As you can probably appreciate from the articles already published on TGSG, I don't just scan the catalogues, but actually write extensively on what is contained within them.

Just scanning, editing, formatting and uploading what you can see on the site requires a pretty significant amount of effort.

Once I have completed the scans and articles related to GS, I will see if I can make the time to scan the full catalogues and upload them, but this may take a while.

If there are any specific questions anyone wants answered (that I can address by thumbing through the catalogues without actually necessitating sharing scans), please don't hesitate to drop me a line.

Kind regards,


Gerald.

Seiko Hoarder What ever happened to Isthmus, who started this thread and posted these scans?

He had some of the most helpful, thought provoking threads.

A real inspiration.

Bingooos Hello all,

This is the best data i've found for vintage 70's Seiko, especially KS Vanac.

Great job guys.

Cheers

wakarimasen Just read a 'birth watch' post, and found this afterwards.

I fear a lot more time spent online will now be required, to search for one for me!

Any idea if catalogues for 1959 & 1963 exist (not my years, by the way)?

Seiko Hoarder These have been a great resource, especially when I'm trying to find out which bracelet to pair with a given watch.

Some day I hope that other people will post scans of the missing volumes.

Cooloo Sorry, CJA976 is the mens' equivalent to the womens' watch I bought. The correct # is CTN936 (seen on page 102 in the 1985 Seiko Vintage Catalog)
