Default For Sale Only, Seiko 6119-8460 "Gene Kranz" Freshly Overhauled By Hub City $ 495

This 6119-8460 from November 1971 is in really excellent condition,
it was overhauled by Hub City in 2019. the case is unpolished and the lines are still quite sharp. There are some scratches on the case, but no dings, it's in way better condition than you'd expect for a watch of this age. The original bezel is ghosted evenly, and missing the pip. I have installed a bezel insert from a 6106-8100, and though it was not made for this watch, it works just fine. the bi-directional bezel rotates smoothly as it was designed to do. If you're a watchmaker, or you send this watch to one, you could have the original bezel re-installed if you wish. This watch has had the dial and hands re-lumed, and they glow beautifully and with great duration. The lume plots are slim, and surrounded by metal, so this was an excellent call on this watch, i think. This watch is completely original except for the crystal, and post-service, is keeping really excellent time. it's set for another few decades of use. These are highly collectable watches, and this one is about as fine as they get.

The bracelet is not original to the watch, it is a beautiful coffin link bracelet,
and of the same vintage, but i'm not sure which watch it belongs to.
This watch came to me with this bracelet in 2019. Price for the watch includes this bracelet, which i like very much, if you want to negotiate me down, then we're talking about a head-only deal.

Price is $495 net to me. Thanks for looking, thanks to scwf for the space....

bump,

well, i've dropped the price on this all original and really beautiful, serviced, and judiciously re-lumed gene kranz further than i wanted to, so last bump on this one. make an offer if you're on the fence, i'm not bumping it again, so i'll just wear it occasionally and try again another year.
