SEIKO Chronograph Automatic
Caliber 6138-0011 Twenty-One Jewels
Together with the 6139 Helmet, I purchased this heavy 6138 UFO in original (but not original to this watch) Seiko solid stainless steel bracelet.
There was a period when I tried to put her up for sale. A kind gentleman from the fora emailed me to stop me from selling away "a part of Seiko's history". I dug deeper into the background of the 6138 and realised her value and the durability of the movement in her massive solid steel casing. I withdrew my sale and I am glad I did that!
After a complete overhaul by a watch repairer, I felt relieved and confident to use her as my daily beater. I am now awaiting NOS hands from Malaysia Seiko service centre. I have also tasked the old watch shop to keep a lookout for any solid 19mm straight lugs stainless steel NOS Seiko bracelet.
She is definitely a keeper!
