Seiko Automatic Chronogragh 1972


Another great looking Seiko chronograph, one of my favorites in fact, I love the good contrast of the dial and the tachometer ring.
This watch was in very poor condition when I got it but apart from an overhaul and case restoration the only parts needed was a glass and the O rings for the pushers. My supplier had the parts but told me that the glass was the only one he had left and could not get it again.
I was very satisfied with my restoration and, as usual, I wanted to wear the watch and show it off for a short time. On that first day, and I don’t know how, I put a small scratch on the glass. This annoyed me no end and into the display case it went with its new flaw.
This is a 1972 model and has the 6139 movement

I’m a horoligical “petrol head”! I love classical mechanical watches, not because they tell me the time, I can get the time from cheap quartz watches, my computer, phone, microwave or just about anywhere. I’m interested in the movements of watches, the aesthetics of case design and their construction, the history and the simple thrill of watching tiny, beautifully finished wheels, pinions and other parts turning and oscillating and marvelling at the craftsmanship that created it.
