  • CASE: CLASSIC CUSHION ALL STEEL CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION MEASURING 41mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN BY 46.8mm LUG TO LUG.  REALLY SHARP EDGES ON THIS ONE WITH NO EVIDENCE OF EVER BEING POLISHED. SERIOUSLY NICE EXAMPLE WITH ONLY SOME MINOR SURFACE SCRATCHES AND THE PEPSI TACHY BEZEL LOOKING MIGHTY BRILLIANT.


  • DIAL: THIS DIAL IS A TOTAL BEAUTY. REALLY CRISP COLOR ON THAT BLUE MATTE FINISH. THE INTERNAL ROTATING BEZEL SHOWS NO SIGNS OF FADE. THE HANDS AND THE DIAL HAVE REALLY NICELY PRESERVED LUME WITH VERY LITTLE PATINA. SUCH AN AMAZING AND CLEAN EXAMPLE OF A SEIKO CLASSIC. 


  • MOVEMENT: THIS SEIKO RUNS ON THE FAMOUS COLUMN WHEEL IN-HOUSE CALIBER 6139B WHICH IS RUNNING BEAUTIFULLY. THE DAY/DATE BOTH QUICKSET CRISPLY. THE CHRONO FUNCTION IS SNAPPY AND EXACT. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN ON THIS ONE, BUT IT'S A STRONG RUNNER WITH GOOD AMPLITUDE AND GOOD TIMEKEEPING 

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON ITS ORIGINAL H-LINK BRACELET IN REALLY SHARP CONDITIO. BRACELET IS SIZED CURRENTLY FOR MY 6.75" WRIST WITH 4 MICRO-ADJUSTS LEFT-OVER, SO IT SHOULD EASILY ACCOMMODATE A 7.5"+ WRIST. THIS IS THE BLUE VARIANT OF THE CLASSIC CHRONO WORN BY COLONEL WILLIAM POGUE IN SPACE ON THE SKYLAB 4 MISSION IN 1973-74. THIS IS A WONDERFUL EXAMPLE READY FOR SOME ACTION!
