from/my/collection: a 1964 catalogue and some watches

Picked up an old catalogue from 1964 on eBay. They are always fun to study and a great source for collectors to cross-check details. This catalogue has among others the Deep Diver 7897 and the alarm 7742, so a good opportunity to verify some details.
