Here is a translated copy of the Legend page from the 1991 Seiko Catalog. This is also appropriate to other Seiko catalogs.



Following are some further translated pages. Some of these are quite obvious but others provide some very useful information.

Table of Contents


Part Number Index


Case / Dial Index


Seiko Quartz Model List


Seiko Hybrid Model List


Seiko Digital Model List


One very useful piece of information is the second last column "Sale", this lists the year and month that a caliber was first sold, this is obviously extremely helpful to update the production date calculator.

Very cool!

I think the forum also has a sub-forum topic for catalogs and ads. Great place for such useful information! :great:

I have updated all of these PDF files with Acrobat's OCR.

This is definitely not perfect and some of the characters detected are not correct but it does allow most (not all) of the text to be selected. Unfortunately there are almost no settings that you can use in Acrobat to improve and control OCR.

This text can then be pasted into Google translate or similar to get a better understanding of the content for non-Japanese readers. You can also manually correct any incorrect characters by typing these in or using the manual writing function within translate.

This is the only difference to the previous versions of the files and all the images are identical.

If you do not want to search or work with the next then there would be no requirement to download these again if you have the previously released versions.

I love your links for Seiko catalogues. They are a big help. Thank you

I'm after year 1999 and 2000 of seiko catalogues.
Do you have these catalogues that you could upload links to at all?
