  • I scanned the “Seiko Watch Technical Guide”, dated somewhere in the late seventies I think.
    Some (all?) parts of it already are available online, for example here: http://www.thewatchsite.com/index.php/topic,23.0.html

    But these scans are in color (useful, because the type of oil is indicated by color) and high resolution (simply nicer :) )

    High resolution comes with a disadvantage: total scansize is 125 Mb. To much for my server bandwidth, so I did split the guide and uploaded it to scribd.com.

    I did split the guide according to the index, I think the titles of the links speak for themselves. If you’re looking for just one specific movement, please check the “List of basic and derivative calibres” chapter to see which basic calibersheet applies .

    Because of filesize, I deleted the empty pages. If you want to print the pages, check the appropiate “rotate” and “fit to page” options in your pdf reader.

    I realise it would be easier to have a single PDF file for printing, please post suggestions for distribution.

    I hope you enjoy this guide

wow, Stoney, thanks so much.
The hi res and color is better than what is out there if you don't own a set of the manuals.


I bet these become the standards now...

Wow - in the future we will be referring to the period "before" and "after" the Stony manuals! Many thanks - will you be putting these in the archive yourself?
