Captain Pogue's 6139

SEIKO Automatic Chrono (close to NOS)
Caliber 6139-6002 Seventeen jewels
Dated: April 1977

It was said that Capt William Pogue wore the 6139 during his space mission. An iconic Seiko in classic pepsi tachymeter bezel and starburst yellow dial.
I acquired this new-old-stock piece from fellow WIS Chuck aka ttsugar from Taiwan. The bezel is perfect and the bracelet and clasp clean. The dial and inner bezel still retains their original colour and the starburst effect still very prominent. Fantastic condition for a watch older than I am!
