Default 6139-6002 Pick Up and Questions

Purchased this job lot of watches for sale on ebay Australia after spotting the 6139-6002. Listing was poorly titled and not much of a description.

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/watches-...53.m1438.l2649

Didn't ask questions during the auction but asked seller to send a photo of the case back after I had won which revealed a missing crown in the first photo.
Once received I could see the stem spring in place so hoping the bezel gear will be there as well. After a couple of shakes I could see the watch was working and actually keeps quite good time but the sweep second hand will need adjusting. I will need at least a new stem and crown so my question is of all the spares available on ebay are any genuine parts. I have dealt with a couple of the sellers before. One in the US and the other in the UK who both look to specialize in Seiko parts.

Good buy


If aftermarket parts are exactly the same as very hard to find and expensive originals (and having seen many of both of these glasses and crowns) imho it's better to get the AM.


If you want it to be totally original - try finding NOS seals and springbars for this model!

Looks like a great score!

Original crowns are difficult to source but they are out there. The same is true for the stems. I would use an original stem to accommodate the gear + spring but an aftermarket crown should suffice if an original can't be found.


Seiko changed the design of the crown at some point. The majority of original crowns are dimpled but a later production run, possibly decades later, eliminated the dimple.

Are you back in Australia? You should come along to the next meet-up of the Perth watch guys.

That looks a pretty decent honest example and hopefully not to much rubbish gone in the crown hole.

Apart from crystals and gaskets I would always use OEM parts however good the after market parts are, I can see the day coming where after market will be the only choice but until then OEM every time

Looks like a nice deal ... bad descriptions are eBay's gift to careful buyers. Last week I snared this for parts:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-SEI...-/274068546093

Not exactly a beauty (and definitely not a 6139-6012), but how wrong can you go for 87 bucks + shipping?

I have had great luck with aftermarket crown and stems on a couple of 6139s. I don’t think you need OEM necessarily.

It's true. They're not needed

I had a member send me a PM offering a genuine stem and crown and accepted so hopefully will do a deal. If not will look at what is on offer on ebay. Thanks for comments and opinions.
