KILLER~DECEMBER 1974 SEIKO 6139-8050 SPEEDTIMER CHRONOGRAPH

Regular price $750.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SUPER COOL DECEMBER 1974 SEIKO 6139-8050 IN REALLY NICE CONDITION WITH ORIGINAL BRACELET.

  • CASE: SEXY AND SOLID ALL STEEL CASE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION MEASURING 39.3mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN BY 41.5mm LUG TO LUG.  I LOVE THE ANGULAR DESIGN AND THE BROAD SHOULDERS WHICH REALLY WEAR GROOVY ON THE WRIST. SOME MINOR SCRATCHES THROUGHOUT BUT IN OVERALL SHARP CONDITION. 
  • DIAL: THIS DIAL AND HANDSET IS REALLY WHAT SELLS THIS WATCH. CHECKOUT THAT DEEP SUNBURST BRITISH RACING GREEN DIAL IN REALLY EXCELLENT CONDITION. THERE IS A TINY SCRATCH ABOVE THE SUWA SYMBOL WHICH IS MAINLY COVERED UP BY THE HANDS. "THE SPEEDTIMER" TEXT AND THE ORANGE CHRONO SWEEPER IN BRILLIANT TANGERINE LOOK AWESOME AGAINST THAT DARK DIAL. IT'S THAT HANDSET THAT TOTALLY SEALS THE DEAL, THOUGH. THEY'RE LIKE TINY ART DECO SKYSCRAPERS WITH SUPERLATIVE FINISH TO THEM WITH THEIR STRIATED CENTRAL SEGMENT. SO FRIGGIN COOL. THE KANJI DAY WHEEL IS A NICE TOUCH AS WELL AS THE VERTICALLY BRUSHED SILVER SUBDIAL AT 6. SO MUCH TO LOVE HERE.
  • MOVEMENT: THIS SEIKO RUNS ON THE FAMOUS COLUMN WHEEL IN-HOUSE CALIBER 6139 WHICH IS RUNNING BEAUTIFULLY. I RECEIVED THIS WATCH WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT IT WAS FULLY SERVICED 2 YEARS AGO. TIME KEEPING IS GREAT AND THE CHRONO ACTION IS EXTRA SNAPPY. 

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON ITS ORIGINAL SEIKO SPEEDTIMER SIGNED MULTI-LINK BRACELET IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. I HAVE IT SIZED RIGHT NOW FOR MY 6.75" WRIST, AND IT STILL HAS 4 ADDITIONAL MICRO-ADJUSTMENTS, SO IT SHOULD ACCOMMODATE A 7.75" WRIST. THIS IS VINTAGE SEIKO AT ITS BEST: FUNKY, WELL-FINISHED, AND BADASS. THIS IS A REALLY NICE EXAMPLE OF ONE OF MY FAVORITES FROM THE 6139 LINE OF CHRONOGRAPHS. WHAT A GROOVY JDM MODEL!
