Hi all,

I was trawling for Raketa catalogues, and came across a large Slava catalogue here

Probably people already know about it but, if not, enjoy!

Paul

[Edit - oops. should have been "Slava". I haven't found a good slave catalogue yet.]

Re: Slave catalogue

Aha! Sorry for not crediting you, [mchap] - I didn't realize where it had come from.

Cheers,
Paul

The most important quesione is another one.

People really look at the catalogs? use them? or just accumulate them?

I wonder why I have bought and published several catalogs and are about to publish more.
Slava of catalogs available, there are only two (one is a brochure), published in this always me.
Scan a catalog is a very tedious and sometimes spoils the catalog.
I just finished scanning a catalog of 377 pages! you can imagine how long it took.

Is it worth continuing? are useful to someone? anyone use them before making the usual questions?

Re: Slave catalogue

For myself, I definitely use the Raketa catalogues (and others with Petrodvoretz watches). For me, the only absolute confirmation of the validity of a watch is to see it in a catalogue. So, I try to assign catalogue numbers to all of my watches and, conversely, I try to find all watches shown in the catalogue.

So, for me, one catalogue is worth more than ten watches!

Best wishes,
Paul

Mchap,... I too find the catalogues very useful! I've spent many hours looking through your scanned pages wondering if I could find all my favorites!
Your hard work is worth it!
Thank you.
