Seiko 6139-6002 "Resist", August 1971. Gold-dialed "Pogue" style
Seiko 6139-6002, August 1971, “Resist”.
This is an all-original piece, original to itself. I don’t have history on it before it came here, but it appears to me to have been a one-owner watch. He was careful with it, and clearly loved the watch. He had it serviced a number of times by a competent old-school watchsmith. The original owner was gentle with the watch.
The watch has an excellent case, with original case lines and polish. Dial and hands have a pleasing patina which I have elected to keep. The watch looks sweet as is, and shows history.
Movement is entirely serviced, and upgraded with a lower mainspring arbor jewel and repair of the upper mainspring arbor bushing.
All parts of the watch are original genuine Seiko, and original to this watch.
Seiko 6139B 17-jewel movement is freshly restored
Lower mainspring arbor port upgraded with a jewel - this is a permanent fix.
Case brushing and polish are original, sharp and clean, with signs of wear but no abuse.
Insert shows the same as above
Dial color has some minor color variations, but surface itself is smooth, undamaged, and clean.
All lume is original, with spots of patina on the hands and markers
For strap and bracelet choices, I recommend uncleseiko.com and his excellent reproduction products.
