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
