Seiko in 1969 beat many watch makers to The Punch in producing the first automatic chronograph and to add icing onto the cake, day-date. So, right off the bat, this has been very much of an icon which in the same year they brought out a slightly larger version with compressor timer that rotates from the single crown that later with a yellow radiant dial that became known as The Pogue after Colonel William Pogue, a famous NASA Astronaut. That being the first automatic watch in space.

There are couple of aspects to this watch that has a high degree of uniqueness. The first part being very important as the inscription on the dial to the left reads “WATER 70M PROOF” that later had to be changed to resist instead because new regulations and patenting took place to outlaw watch house from declaring that a watch is water proof because one particular brand managed to have the sole rights to do so. So, Seiko like many other watch brands had to change the wording to read Resist in which the later models did. The second aspect is that Bruce Lee had two of the 6139-6010 models and was mainly seen with the Dark Grey/Black Dial version. So, this Blue Dial version was less seen, and Bruce Lee from Hong Kong most likely had the second language part of the day wheel in a Chinese language whereas this one, has the second language in Kanji Japanese.

Seiko serial numbers of the 6139 reveal the first two the year and the month they were made. So, the first digit showing 9 for 1969 and the second being a number until after 0 where this has a letter N for November. It comes on an original Seiko bracelet with all links that fits my 8.25 wrist and can go beyond with the micro adjustments on the signed buckle.

So, it is an ultra-rare Seiko 6139-6010 automatic complicated movement Day-Date chronograph is up for sale. The Blue 70m signed dial is in good condition considering the age. It has a rally vibe, also known as speedtimer which was printed on some versions. The watch is all JDM Japanese Domestic Market that only came with this style of Seiko signed bracelet. The build quality is very sublime and High end. The movement has been cleaned, oiled, and serviced with a master watchmaker of the previous owner three months ago; it's keeping good time. All the chronograph functions are working. The watch looks even better upfront. The pictures don't do justice to this watch. This is a gem and super collectible piece for sure. No bad dings or blemishes to be concerned about. In an amazing condition considering it is from 1969. No signs of it being a Franken watch.

The reason for sale is I have a Pogue Yellow Dial Pogue 6139-6000 for the same year and a hard decision to decide which one to let go as I cannot have both!
