1974 Seiko 6139-6002 Automatic Chronograph “Blue Pogue”

1974 Seiko 6139-6002 Automatic Chronograph “Blue Pogue”


For vintage Seiko lovers, perhaps no series is as instantly recognizable as the 6139-600X models that have become synonymous with the introduction of this historic movement. For collectors, they serve as the embodiment of Seiko’s efforts to deliver, with style, their first automatic chronograph. Today, these models are often referred to as, and fall under the umbrella of the “Pogue” models due to their association to Col. William Pogue and his now historic yellow dialed variant. Available in three colorways (Yellow, Silver, and Blue), it goes without saying that no matter your preference, they are all memorable in their own right and the right example would be a highlight in any collection. This example from April of ‘74 is in fantastic condition. The matte navy blue dial is flawless, and all of the markings are crisp. The luminous material on the markers and hands is the original, and has developed an even creamy patina. The rotating inner bezel has faded from UV exposure, but is a uniform gray with  crisp silver markings. The polished hour and minute hands are free of oxidation, and sport a mirror polished finish. The chronograph hands are a fiery red/orange that is both complementary, and in perfect contrast to the dial. The outer bezel in metallic red and blue shows only light, even wear with no color fade. The case remains unpolished with the original factory finishes still clearly intact.  It comes attached to the original tapered “H” link bracelet with no stretch between the links, and the original end links in tow. The chronograph functions are smooth and responsive, and post service, the 6139B is keeping near perfect time. Completely original aside from a replacement crystal, it’s a beautiful example that would make a great addition to any roster.
