Description: The Seiko “6139” range of Chronographs are an iconic yet affordable vintage icon. Including the various “Pogue” variations, and this Bruce Lee blue faced variant, the 60s/70s design is among the best of the time. The movements are largely bulletproof, and a good serviced example will deliver reliable performance despite its 50 year age.
This piece is one of the best we’ve seen. A true “left in a drawer” find, the watch is in amazing vintage condition and all functions, and accuracy, perform as they should. The case, and case-back, are unpolished (very rare on 6139s), and while light marking can be seen when looked for, there are no dents, dings or scratches. The original brushed and polished surfaces are as they were originally produced. The crystal does show some marks and micro chips, but is highly legible and appears great on the wrist.
