Nice one Neilo!

This watch presents a challenge for the photographer since the display doesn't stay on long enough to take a good photo. Actually I think it's on, just washed out in the sun.

Really it's a horribly designed watch, but it gets a lot of comments!

Morning Neilo. Sharp looking Citizen you got there! Awesome gift Sir.

Here it is my Pogue for now, a 6139-6005 from June 1972.

Just saw that I have to activate the VIP option to load up the bigger pic - oh my... feel not vip very much.

Bullhead today,i'd begun to think this watch would never get over the finishing line
I bought it almost three years ago and sent it off to Simon [ siralan ] for full movement service ,he also relumed the dial and hour/min hand [ they'd been horribly painted rather than lumed ] sweep and sub hands were NOS from Stefan .

Simon's work is always top notch but I'm amazed with how good a job he did on the dial/hands [ thank you mate ]



The case was pretty rough so it went off to another member here for refinish and the project stalled a bit ,I wasn't in a rush and life gets in the way ,best laid plans etc etc , I finally got the case back a few weeks ago and I'm thrilled with how it turned out [ thank you so much mate ,it's way better than I hoped for ]

Simon reassembled everything for me and the last piece of the puzzle was one of Jonathan's East tec fishbones kindly sold to me by Tom [ Seikopsycho2 }

Do you mean end links for 6309-704X divers or end links for sharkmesh on a 6309? Because I can't find end links for mesh bands

Do you have a link? Thanks in advance.
