These just in from Yahoo Japan:





Well, lets see if there is something new in them....





One-button chronograph....nope, got that already ::) How about a stopwatch then?





Nope...been there, done that. Maybe a dress watch for Christmas, how about a full day/date?





Rats! I got that one too. Well, lets try some high-end stuff, maybe Grand Seiko? Or a diver?





Aaargh! I give up! Well, at least I have something to wrap fish in.....


;)


Enjoy your weekend!

These are fantastic Harry. Shame I can't read Japanese though the photos and illustrations are wonderful. Great reference. Thanks for sharing.

Superb resource! Fascinating to see a no-date, waterproof Seiko at less than 4000Yen, date at about 6000Yen, a one-button chronograph at "only" 8000Yen (although still double the price of a regular Seiko) and then the HUGE leap to the 6218 WeekDater and GS chronometer at 27000Yen! 5-6000Yen would have been an affordable but still significant sum for a regular working man, 8000Yen for a chrono would probably have been considered a little frivolous, 12-13000Yen approaching luxury levels (explain-THAT-purchase-to-your-wife level) and 27000 clearly top-level / senior management level!

Interesting enough the price comparison between the KS and the GS has flipped, try buying a 4420 for %12 less than a 5722!

I was just curious, I know the 5626-7090 Chronometer was about 25% more in Gold Cap than SS

If the picture was inappropriate i will remove it, I i just like treads width pictures better my self.
