How easy is it to restore/replace the gear(s) involved in rotating the inner bezel?

Its sold now (was on here) I did enquire myself on Instagram and then saw it here but I assume he got a lot of interest as didnt get a follow up (apart from my initial message acknowledged) unfortunately as would have liked it.

Pretty unlikely the bezel teeth were gone, its usually a missing crown/bezel gear

Easy, at least with reproduction parts. I imagine its more difficult to get a legit OE gear, though Ive never really looked for one.

Stefan has been selling the gears for a while but if it is the dial ring teeth (plastic) that are US then thats more of a problem (imo) but if you have a spare then easy fix.

About your 2nd post, I have seen that listing before. The sub hand looked wrong and the hour hand too. The dial doesn't add up. It looks relumed.

Edit: I'm expecting this one coming in anytime now. A example of unmolested.
Have you received it? I am looking at the photo and wondering why the sub hand looks a shade brighter than the seconds hand? I have the some question with this one? Does the sub hand look alright to you guys?

Also feel free to advise on the rest of the watch

I don't know any more, maybe it's the scratched glass, maybe light angle, really don't know what to think about the subdial hand. On one photo it looks ok, on the other it looks a few shades lighter The listing said 100% all parts original, still wondering...


Another thing, no resist dial is a T version, the resist dial is an R version, but they are pretty much the same colour, isn't the T dial supposed to be lighter shade of yellow?

The minute counter looks fine. Chrono seconds looks AM. I don't know much on these as I've never liked them enough at times to get one, well sometimes...but that is my opinion on yours. Could be wrong!

A resist text Pogue could be a T dial

No that one is R, can't focus better with my phone, the other one is T but both look exactly the same, is that strange?

Was replying to your “no resist is a T dial”

Sorry, Thought you meant that literally there’s no T dials that are resists... but you mean out of the two pictured the non resist is a T dial.

I’d say it’s always the later R dials with just the chronograph automatic text that are the darker colour, like an Aussie Pogue.

Hard to tell really judging from your pictures. The colour looks identical. Maybe something to do with the type of lacquer used and how they fade differently on both the R and T? So perhaps the R resist dial being older faded enough to match the later T dial.

Heres a picture of my only R dial from 1972. It's alot darker than my resist T dial. But the chrono hand and sub dial min counter seem to match in colour.

How does this one look?

I thought the 2-piece sweep were only on 1969 models but I'm unsure now as this one is 1970 April.

Not sure when they phased out the 2-piece sweep, but they were still in use in early 1970. That watch looks legit to me.

I have a 6139-6009 and a 6139-7010 both from mid 1970 with 2 piece sweep hands. I wouldn't worry. If I was on the look out for these I'd snatch it up.

Yup, this is a great looking watch. The two piece sweep should be on all PROOF models and many RESIST depending on their dates. Here is my RESIST with its original two piece sweep next to my plain dial with the one piece one.

I concur. I think demand for the 6139-601x especially the blue dial version might pick up after everyone gets done chasing Pogues. These are only going to get harder to find, especially a nice example of the early -6010 or -6019.

I like how this thread continues to bring up great discussions. Im in negotiations for this one. Well see how it goes. It is original in every way and born on March 1969.

No, just the watch head with this one. Getting these original bracelets is tough for sure.
