borgsauce 6139-6009 just came in today after a long wait. I was told by a friend of mine that the insert on this one is AM. But seeing how all that gunk has accumulated around the insert and that it sits perfectly all around the bezel, I just don't see how its AM. What do you guys think? I'm particularly confused about the 220 and 200 markers, the 2 seems to drop across what looks to be a second slant. This slant is even throughout the circumference of the insert.

Other than that im quite satisfied with the rest of this watch. It's proving to be a PIA to get that caseback to open. It won't budge at all!

Vette Enthusiast Both look like fantastic pickups. Good eye. Enjoy.

SeikoPsycho2 Great find on original bracelets! The 7010 original bracelets are few and far between.
They should clean up nicely!

But let's be completely honest the best part about vintage purchases nowadays is the gunk built up. That thing is gold [emoji4] takes years to get that kind of DNA cocktail. Would be a sad moment scrapping it off.

Agree with you 100%!...the ones you have there in particular have aged rather beautifully, and deserve to be kept untouched...they're very nice, and I like them as is!

Btw, you're really fortunate to bag that rare 7010...if I'm not mistaken, they had a very short production run...Feb to April '70!

Congrats!

qship I stand to be corrected, but I think the 7010 is one of the rarest 6139s, being, as noted, the only one with numerals and it was made only for the Japanese military officers. A silver dialed version also exists. Great find.

Glad you decided to pull the trigger. Congrats.

Chronomaster Oh man, I am with you all the way borgsauce, all that DNA and personal material all around the bezel and case flanges just screams originality. I am lovin' that 6139-6009 too. You just dont see that many resist dialed pieces with a 2 piece large seconds hand, that makes it all the more special to the owner. Both pieces are very nice indeed and will be beauties when they get home from the spa !!

Reflex ^ They do and should clean up nicely. Well done and enjoy those

GuyJ Both look great!

CombatID The 7010 is unusual and I really like it. The bezel-less or “thin” (I think is the term) 6139s are really cool. Great Resist dial too! You have some restorations coming up!
