    I love that site.

    Here's some other calibre photo collections that I have used for identifying some of the obscure items that turn up on this forum. Generally not as aesthetically pleasing as Nakahiro, but very useful.

    That's a marvellous site indeed!

    What a bright idea to have classified the watches by calibers and to give access to the watch fitted with them. You can try to guess the watch design before seeing it...

    An impressive collection too. Congratulations to Nakahiro

    Many thanks for the links. I think I found another early Seikosha from this site in a Nation brand watch. Mine was found in a Chinese Hua Cheng watch.:-D
