Oh man, this is insane. I actually think the case back is in pretty good shape. :)

I just posted on a similar horrible silver dial. It’s from a US source too. I guess the franken creators are moving in.

You know paypal stopped refunding their fees back to the seller. A lovely deterrent would be to purchase it, make the payment and then cancel the order. So tempting.

Quite possibly the worst I have ever seen on Ebay from a shameful seller. Even his choice of crystal is Just Horrible!

I think there's an interesting question lurking underneath all the aftermarket nonsense. The watch is a 6139-6005. Which is nice enough, I guess. I have one and it's a great watch, even if mine does need a trip to the spa.

But even if this watch really had been lovingly restored with all NOS parts ... even if it were the best of all possible 1973 6139-6005s ... would you cough up $1,400 for a non-resist, non-proof yellow Pogue?

Seems like a reach to me, although I guess it only takes one buyer.

You should check this one out that sold yesterday. Not a bad price I didn't get it tho but someone else who made an offer not that much from mine.

IMO that looks like a Good Buy especially with the original Tapered Bracelet. Someone got a nice pickup and will not need to "spend 2 years painstakingly searching for original parts to restore this watch to its original glory"

Hi guys,

Is the 6005 Pogue should have the Automatic Chronograph'' mention under Seiko ? I thought it was ''automatic''
Bezel insert is not correct too...Eventually it's too expansive...

One that says only 'automatic' is designated for the NA market. And the one that includes "chronograph" is for the rest of the world.
A Yellow Pogue's Pogue ends with 6005 reference with 'Automatic' and 'Water Resist' on the dial along with Suwa symbol and 17J text.

Tried to offer 50 too, offer wasn’t accepted because I’m in UK. I honestly think 50 is all I’d be willing to pay for it, for that money you’d have a half decent looking watch you wouldn’t have to worry about I suppose.

I just saw that and watched the video, sent him a message informing him that NONE of the watch is in-fact original, just in case he was genuine mistaken in thinking it was original. However, I very much doubt it and I look forward to the salty reply I will probably receive.
