Vintage Grand Seikos in Seiko catalogues

March 2019

We have now completed our documentation of all the vintage Grand Seiko references.

The articles linked to below include scans of all pages featuring Grand Seikos from Seiko catalogues of the 1960’s and 1970’s, as well as a discussion of the references that appear in them. We have grouped catalogue appearances of women’s vintage Grand Seiko references into a single article, and there is one final article that details those references that do not have a catalogue appearance.

We hope you find these articles as interesting to read as we did in writing them – it is very illuminating to view the history of the brand through the pages of the catalogues, and several fascinating threads are revealed that otherwise wouldn’t be obvious from simply looking at the production history of the watches.

This post serves as an index for the published articles.

    Thank you for this incredible Labor of Love. More than I could ever have expected.
    Your work goes to prove a Point that I did not believe I was told 6145/46 was never added to the
    1968-1969 Seiko Catalogs . The 61 GS is the maple I chose to collect I see the 6145-8020 but no 6146-8030 or 6146-8040? I would love to find out others thoughts as to why?
    Mr G. Great work
