Default Krentz Seiko

Nice bit of information. There seems to have been two different bracelets used on the Krentz, can you comment on this?

This is a great post! Thanks for sharing.

I have a black dial variant. It’s a great watch but I need to move it on. Will post in forum soon.

Just watched The moon and back in 8 days which had actual footage of Kranz in the control room during the 1969 mission. He was clearly wearing a black dial watch.

What do y'all think of this One on ebay?
Wrong bezel
Wrong seconds hand
Fake dial
The hands might might be correct
Proof dial and a Resist back dated November 1970

The amazing thing is that they want $999.00!

The case is from a 6119-8460. The dial, hands and probably movement are from a 6119-8140. The bezel is a fake version of the same type as those found on a 6105-8110.


It is an abominable frankenwatch which may be worth $20 for salvageable parts it contains.

I've been looking for one and when I saw the black dial I was happy for about 2 seconds . . . . .
