1977 Seiko Pogue chronograph 6139-6002

The Seiko Pogue is an icon.  Made famous by Col. William Pogue, who wore one on his his Skylab 4 space mission in 1973 – this model was the first automatic chronograph watch worn in space.


From the serial number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being made in March 1977.


There is another good guide to this model watch by Worn and Wound here.  Although, a couple of years on, the time for finding any at a couple of hundred dollars has now passed.

This is a superb example.  The dial is bright, and the inner bezel hasn’t faded too much (many are now white from fading).  There are only minimal scratches on the pepsi bezel.  The case looks to have been polished at some point, and only a few small marks remain.  The H link bracelet is good and a good length too.  The flush fitting crown is fully functioning – a deep press to quick set change the day (French and English wheel), a lighter press to quick set the date.  In the natural position the crown turns the inner bezel smoothly, and when pulled out the crown sets the time.  The automatic only winding movement and chronograph is likewise keeping good time, the chrono hands crisply snapping back to zero.  There is a scratch on the sub dial, and very light marks above the sub dial too.  The bevelled glass has one small scratch.

This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
