Default 6139-6030 Originality

Hey folks, I just got this watch in from a seller in Florida and I believe it is all absolutely original, but I would like your thoughts. All functions work well except that the date change and Chrono hands are a little sticky. The movement is spotless and there is no brassing on any bridges. It is running with low amplitude (130 deg) so it will need a service.

Everything about the dial looks right including the slight lume patina and the shorter baton at 9 o’clock. Based upon pictures I researched on the color of the hands I believe this is correct. The sweep is the right two piece one. Did I get this right?

Spectacluar ! The major check points are all good. Congrats !


I will add the sweep second hand looks orange which would have been correct but should have been 2-peice from the factory. They can also have been yellow but no worries that seems like an OEM hand and could have been changed along the way. Same with the subdial, yellow or orange this looks OEM orange and perfect.


Congrats !

Even with my small amount of knowledge, I can see that’s a result!
Superb watch.

To me it looks like a two piece hand sprayed orange to hide the center post, or match the subdial hand if either replaced?

Not sure. Is the crown dimpled, shouldn't it be?

Hey Guy, yes the crown is dimpled as it should be. It doesn’t show up well in the picture.

No, it came on a nato strap so I will have to search for a bracelet or maybe get one from Uncle Seiko
