Haha, it would be like the UFO all over again! But then I suppose I was only going to sell on the UFO. But THiS one I'm keepingOk check out this baby. I picked it up earlier this week and am sad to say I have already let Thickman808 take it from me.... sniff sniff.... It's a Feb 1970 6139-6030 with Proof dial and Proof case back. Not a split seconds hand but the sub minute hand is gold
Lucky I like Tom otherwise he'd have stood no chance getting this one from me :grin:
Totally agree with you John, defiantly a model with great character.IMO I think the 6139s are one of if not the best looking models Seiko produced, colourful and quality.
I remember seeing a couple in a Jewellers (new) back in the 70s and I really lusted after them but couldent afford them( kids wanted to eat, bills to pay etc, thinking about it not much has changed in the last 40 odd years ).
Probably just needs a little lovin' and a service Mine all keep spot on time considering but if you want true perfect time keeping then you can't beat Quartz. That said I have a regulator clock made c1850 that keeps to within 2 seconds over 3 monthssome fantastic watches on show here gents.Can't believe how good they look after 40 odd years. Finally got a 6012 blue face, doesn't keep time as well as my quartz models but still looks great after all these years !!
