The primary sources of information as to which references were in the range at any one time are of course the Seiko catalogues from the era, and I have written an extensive series of
Looking forward to securing my first GS.
Likely to be a 57 GS from circa 1966 and now have a clear direction on the buckle that I shall need to accompany it.
One also gets an idea from the photos of the straps that are correct for the models.
Seems that at the time straps featured one thick leather securing hoop rather than the two thinner ones popular today.
A lot of work has clearly been put in, but a great reference that enhances appreciation of the brand as a whole.
Again Thank You!
Great read. Do you think the buckle for a 43999 was different from the one on the 57GS? I am thinking (hoping) an SS version of the one from the first GS.
