Well guys the first of the research projects is in and finished and delivered. Harry has written a guide to the Seiko's first Diver. It is saved in the FAQ section of this forum.

There are still several unclaimed projects. Also Vandice/RPF will not be able to write the two projects he originally volunteered for, so they've been added to the list.
Please reply to this post to lay your claim to any one of the projects. The idea being that you promise to commit to writing the most thorough draft you can of the project over the next month. at the end of that time, post your draft for comments and editing and then repost it as a final draft.

When finished, Like Harry's guide, they will be added to the FAQ so that we can all benefit from them for years going forward. This same post is being made at SCWF.

Here are the topics that have been suggested. Those that are already taken are noted. Please claim yours:

1. A Guide for Beginners (General advice for the beginner collector)

2. A brief history of each of the major Japanese brands.

3. a technical breakdown and comparison of the 6r15 vs. the eta 2824.

4. history of sub-brands like Brightz, Laurel, Credor

5. A Movement chronology table (including Quartz calibers) similar to the one in TZ, but updated to include all the modern calibers.
