Default Seiko 6139-6032 coke "ITALY EXPORT" version dial

Some time ago here we talked about the 6139-6032 "Coke" Pogue export version, made for the French market with dial code 6070T.
Two weeks ago I was very lucky to get the Italian coke Seiko 6139-6032 "EXPORT" Version with "water resist" text on dial, from April 1971 - made exclusive for the italian market and with "Italian/English" day wheel. Dial code is still 6070T.
Its very hard to find this variation, because it was probably made only during April 1971. The French variation was made only in April 1972 with no "water resist" text, only plain dial.
Actualy its on a JDM bracelet, but will change it to the regular H-Link like it was delivered at the time according to the nice add Bert has found.

Thanks for looking.

Very nice Alex!!! There is a lot more to learn about chrono's than divers!
Err... I don't suppose there is any point asking if you'll offer to sell the JDM bracelet to me?

Bracelets are often harder to find than the watches and sometimes even more expensive! It's been said many times, it is often harder to find the original bracelet, bracelet-links or bracelet-end pieces than it is the watch.

Jim, that said I would rather trade/or sell the watch. Yes, for sure! But not the bracelet. :-)

Nice watch there Alex.
Always fancied the 6032, particularly the JDM version.

Thank you Jim, Jon and all you buddies for your kind words.
There is always one more to discover and to learn.
That's what makes this hobby so exciting - and this forum so great.

This is phenomenal, thank you so much for sharing Alex. Since you originally were responding my research in the other thread I hope you'll indulge me - how did you come to the conclusion that all the French export versions are April '72 (no "resist" dial text) and all the Italian export versions are April '71 (with "resist" dial text)? This is mostly consistent with what I found through my google-fu and relayed the other thread, but I'm just wondering if/hoping that you might have found something more definitive - everything I could find was just anecdotal. The only counterexample I had found was one January '73 French example, but the link I included doesn't work anymore . And I suppose it could've been a replaced caseback.

Also, I am (joking) mad at you for making me realize my collection has one more hole in it!!!

Believe it or not I've actually filled in quite a few other Pogue "holes" that I could identify since that old thread - most notably a "Forward" (like the one Tom posted), a much nicer Sunrise, and two different 92**** 6139-6000s speeditmers (both need work, and I may donate one to the Seiko museum with Akable's help). I was going to post a "Hen's Teeth Pogues" thread once get at least one of the February examples up to speed, but now I feel incomplete again!!!

This is a madhouse and we're all madmen...

I have no "proof" like catalogues or official data. The only official about these Export variations are two posters/advertisments, Bert has posted it here somewhere and one I found in Instagram, a foto of an ad hangin in a watchmakers room.
Beside of that I have only my researched data and infos of watches I saw over the years. Only a handfull of watches, all with the production dates of April 1971 for the italian resist, and April 1972 for the French one.

Thanks Alex. I'd never heard of or seen the Italian ads before, but a little googling shows this one. Guessing that is the one you mentioned of the ad hanging in the watchmaker's room. It sure looks like you're right about 4/72 being Italian and 4/71 being French. Congrats again!

Default All-Man Man's Watch

After seeing the Seiko advertisement in this thread regarding the All-Man Man's Watch...finally, I figured out why I bought my 6139-6002 at the Danang Air Base BX back in 1972. For $40 it turned me into an All-Man instantly. Captain America! Ok, 2nd Lieutenant America. Whatever.

About 2 weeks ago a Forward was auctioned on yahoo.jp for a relative cheap amount as it was described only as the regular Coke Speed-Timer. I dont know why, but the Forward is not that grail for me. I would be happy with a teal sunrise in my collection of Pigue variants. Thats my real grail.
