Hi guys I have been involved in horology as a hobby for a couple of years now. My particular interest is collecting and refurbishing vintage chronographs and that is what led me to this forum.

I have just recently purchased a Seiko "Pepsi" chronograph and I'm about to embark on its refurbishment. I will obviously require some parts in this venture, and hopefully some of you may be able to help in this department.

Please keep us posted (pics etc.) while doing your work...

Working on a chronograph is far from trivial.

Will be interesting.

Good luck!

Thanks for the welcome.

When I work out how to post pictures I'll let you see what I want to fix.

Welcome! The 6139s are among the most rewarding (I think) to restore and refinish. I've done a couple myself and I'm happy to share my experiences -- although some others will surely have better information than I will!

Welcome!
The 6139 (and 6138) movements are superb, you'll like working on them I think!
Make sure you get the tech guides from this site, there are lots of helpful bits in there, a must really if you plan on stripping down and rebuilding.
Good luck, looking forward to seeing any pictures!
