COMING AT YOU IS A WICKED  JANUARY 1974 SEIKO 6138-0030 KAKUME CHRONOGRAPH IN AMAZING CONDITION AND RECENTLY SERVICED BY TOM HICKMAN IN THE UK WITH THE ORGINIAL FISHBONE BRACELET

 

  • CASE: HEFTY SOLID STEEL CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.  THIS BEAUTY MEASURES A LARGE 43mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN. ONE OF THE COOLER AND MORE WILD WATCH CASE DESIGNS OF THE 70s WITH ITS TONNEAU DESIGN AND SHARP EDGES. THIS ONE LOOKS TO HAVE NEVER BEEN POLISHED AND MAINTAINS ITS SHARP ORIGINAL LINES. SOMD MILD DINGS SEEN ON THE BOTTOM EDGE OF THE BEZEL. THE ORIGINAL BLUE TACHY RING LOOKS TO BE IN PARTICULARLY WELL PRESERVED CONDITION.

 

  • DIAL: REALLY NICE EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THE MORE COLORFUL FACES IN THE 6138 LINE-UP.  I LOVE THE VERTICALLY ALIGNED SQUARE SUBDIALS WITH VERTICAL BRUSHING ON THE METALLIC SILVER FINISH. THEY REALLY POP AGAINST THAT DARK BLUE BACKGROUND. THE HINTS OF YELLOW ARE REFRESHING. THIS MODEL HAS MY FAVORITE HANDSET OF ANY OF THE 6138 VARIANTS WITH THOSE WHITE ARROW TIPPED BLACK DAGGERS. SO DAMN COOL. ALL VIEWED UNDER THE ORIGINAL HARDLEX CRYSTAL. THE FRENCH/ENGLISH DAY WHEEL IS A NICE TOUCH.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS GUY IS POWERED BY THE VENERABLE SEIKO 6138 AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPH CALIBER. ONE OF MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE MOVEMENTS. SO BULLETPROOF. ALL FUNCTIONS WORK CRISPLY. DAY/DATE QUICKSETS WORK WELL, CHRONO RESETS SHARPLY TO ZERO, AND THE WATCH KEEPS GOOD TIME. THIS WAS SERVICED BY TOM HICKMAN IN THE UK WITHIN THE LAST 2 YEARS AND IS RUNNING FLAWLESSLY.

 

  • THIS SEIKO IS MOUNTED ON ITS ORIGINAL TAPERING FISHBONE BRACELET IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. BRACELET CAN ACCOMODATE UP TO A SHADE PAST AN 8" WRIST. THIS IS ONE OF THE COOLER 6138s IN MY OPINION. SUCH GREAT COLOR AND CHARACTER AND TOTALLY FUNKY. THIS IS A SHARP EXAMPLE READY TO WEAR AND ENJOY.
