Selling my 1975 Seiko Speedtimer 6138-0030 Blue “Kakume” JDM version with original bracelet + new Uncle Seiko bracelet designed to match the original. The watch is in very good working order; keeps good time, chrono hand returns to 12, dial and hands are all correct and in excellent condition with Kanji date wheel. The original bracelet is in used condition with the very desirable “Speedtimer” clasp. These Japanese Domestic Market versions are getting hard to find, and this one really is in excellent condition.

"The 21 jewel 6138A released in 1970 was the first fully integrated automatic chronograph with a column wheel and vertical clutch coupling mechanism. “Kakume” apparently means “square eyes”; one look at the dial and you can see where this nickname comes from. The 0030 came in two color designs, a blue dial with square silver subdials and blue tachymeter bezel, and champagne dial with square black subdials and black tachymeter bezel.

The dials are a sandwich style, meaning the inset subdials and day/date window are made of a separate sheet of metal attached under the dial rather than simply stamped into the main dial. The blue dial has a brilliant radial brushed satin finish, while the subdials have a vertical brushed finish, and the hands have a nice white (not lume) stripe.

The Seiko 6138-0030 is the epitome of a vintage Seiko. Funky 1970’s style yet timeless at the same time, quality made and beautifully designed and detailed dial, hands and bezel, perfectly integrated bracelet, easily serviceable and replaceable crystal and gaskets. Couple this with the technically innovative and robust in-house manufacture movement and you get a simply stunning and incredible watch that will stand the test of time." - Worn & Wound

Asking $1350 shipped within CONUS. Tons of positive feedback here on Watchuseek... as well as Omega Forum and Rolex Forum under same name.
