Hi, all - I'm a devotee of the Seiko 6138 and I just filled out the must-haves of my collection, I thought I'd show and tell. There are definitely other 6138's I can imagine having, but these are my four favorites, starting with my most recent get:

Gabe, I'm pretty sure I'm going to snag one one of Jonathan's repro rings for the slide rule watch. If anyone reading this has pics of one installed, I'd love to see, please post it here.

We were just talking about that pointer - I'm planning to get a repro put in.

Here you go! NOS original ring from Rob...



Sorry guys, my efforts to post a picture of my 6138-7000 are not working. I've tried everything, but I am unable to get it to "stick"! Frustrating!

Nice collection though! Congratulations, they look to be in great original condition.

I have two (the other one is a UFO), and I love them. Wouldn't mind adding a "bully" and a 3000 to my little collection!

Regards
Alvin

Thanks again for all the replies, and thanks for the heads up on the NOS cursor ring - I just sent a message.


I haven't ruled out Jonathan's replacement though - I think the newer material might be a little less fragile. Any thoughts on this from anyone who's handled both?
