Seiko 6139-6002 from 1977
For sale is a Seiko 6139-6002.
The Seiko 6139-6002 or more famously known as "The Pogue" was known as the world's first automatic chronograph that was made available to the public.
On top of that, in year 2007 it was established that Col. Pogue wore a 6139-6002 during the NASA Skylab 4 mission which took place in 1973, making the seiko 6139 the first automatic chronograph in space.
The watch chronograph functions perfectly and is keeping good time. Spotting can be seen across the dial. The inner bezel rotates as it should. A brand new crystal has been installed for clarity.
This watch is marked as one of the Grail for Seiko Pogue collectors as it is the same 6002 reference work by Colonel Pogue with its original bracelet.
The watch also comes with its original bracelet, a rare sight considering its age.
