Seiko Chronogrpah 1974

This very nice Seiko chronograph is from 1974. It has the very sophisticated 6138 movement featuring a three register chronograph and differs from most Swiss chronographs in that it doesn’t have a dedicated second hand. But then most Swiss chronos where not automatic wind, didn’t have a date let alone day display and they cost a lot more.

This watch has been beautifully restored (not by me) and I think that it is all original, including the bracelet.

It is signed 4 times and the square sub dials inside a round dial is unusual but looks great.


About robswatches

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.
