Default International Pogue Day - 16th November

Hey all,
Just a reminder that International Pogue Day will soon be upon us. It is (as always) on November 16th and this year marks the 46th anniversary of when Commander Bill Pogue blasted off to Skylab in 1973 with his gold faced 6139-6005 tucked away about his person, making it the first automatic chronograph in space.

As has fast become a tradition, on 16th November a lot of us will be wearing our 6139's to celebrate this fact. Spread the word, join in, enjoy the wrist shots of all the beautiful 6139's that you will see across forums and across social media sites - use the hashtag #internationalpogueday to flag it up and spread the word on all the watch forums you visit. The incomparable Jonas @mrjones is using his many talents to update the banners and pictures for this year, they will be following in the not too distant future for us all to use.

Talking Tongue planted firmly in cheek ....

Not wishing to derail your valiant effort, Phil, but it seems to me (certainly going by the number of threads on the first page, which include '6139' or 'Pogue' in their title) that every day is a 'Pogue Day' on SCWF.

Perhaps I should advocate that November 26th be nominated International Spationaute III day.
It was after all, the first fully analogue quartz chronograph in space (November 26th 1988).

You are quite right, every day is Pogue Day somewhere Paul! And that Yema is a cracker! Might be slightly harder to find than a 6139 though possibly

Sorry for the derail, Phil. It's a shame Colonel William Pogue isn't around to take part in the celebrations of his much-hyped watch.

Last year I managed to get Michel Tognini (France's 3rd astronaut - and hence Spationaute IIIeme) to participate in my little celebration of the 30th anniversary of the 1988 Aragatz mission.



Although he was given his own Yema (7T32 based) model for the 1992 Antares mission, he still wears his Spationaute III (from when he was back-up crew member to Aragatz in 1988). Incidentally, Michel (who doesn't use the title) attained the rank of Brigadier General in the French Air Force, before embarking on his career as an astronaut.

I am already ramping up with the watches and the order to present day by day and which one to culminate with on November 16 which is a no-brainer (teaser...)

We need a calendar of "Seiko's in Space". Looks like the A289-6019 Seiko Digital NASA was handing out in the 80's (according to this article: https://www.fratellowatches.com/the-...nt-into-space/) launched on the shuttle on Oct 30th, which we just missed.

That would be interesting. Id imagine adding it all up youd probably hit the full 365 days? No competition for the speedy, although Id imagine there were lots of different models that were used. @ewand would know I think.

Can't help but comment at how scruffy the Hodinkee presenter Cole Pennington looks in that video.

I wonder if the missing Speedmaster crystal will ever be found in space?, probably worth a quid or two now.
