Regular price $1.00 Sale

COMING AT YOU IS ONE OF THE QUINTESSENTIAL CHRONOGRAPHS OF THE 1970S: THE SEIKO 6138-7000 FLIGHT CALCULATOR CHRONO

 

  • CASE: HEFTY SOLID STEEL CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.  THIS BEAUTY MEASURES A PORTLY 44mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN AND PUSHERS. NO ONE QUITE DID THIS CASE DESIGN LIKE SEIKO DID WITH THIS MODEL. THIS ONE LOOKS TO BE TOTALLY UNPOLISHED MAINTAINING ITS ORIGINAL FINISHES AND SHARP LINES. CHECK OUT THAT TOTALLY FANTASTIC ROTATING SLIDE RULE BEZEL GEARED TOWARDS FLIGHT CALCULATIONS. 

 

  • DIAL: REALLY NICE EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THE FUNKIEST FACES OF THE 6138 LINE OF WATCHES. I LOVE THE 2 VERTICALLY ALIGNED SUNKEN DARK GREY PIE-PAN SUBDIALS WHICH GIVE THIS SOME SERIOUS DEPTH. I DIG THE SPUNKY POPS OF ORANGE ON THE SUBDIALS AND THE CHRONO SWEEPER. LUME PLOTS HAVE JUST A SUBTLE TINGE OF PATINA WHICH MATCH NICELY WITH THAT ON THOSE WHITE/BLACK HANDS.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS GUY IS POWERED BY A 21 JEWEL SEIKO 6138B AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPH. ONE OF MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE MOVEMENTS. SO BULLETPROOF. ALL FUNCTIONS WORK CRISPLY. DAY/DATE QUICKSETS WORK WELL, CHRONO RESETS WELL. TIME KEEPING BOTH ON THE WRIST AND THE TIMEGRAPHER ARE SOLID WITH GOOD AMPLITUDE NOTED. THIS ONE HAD BEEN RECENTLY SERVICED BY SPENCER KLEIN AND IS RUNNING BUTTER SMOOTH.

 

  • THIS SEIKO IS MOUNTED ON THE ORIGINAL SEIKO BRACELET WHICH SHOULD ACCOMMODATE UP TO AN 8.25” INCH WRIST. IN MY OPINION, THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST FUN SEIKO CHRONOGRAPHS TO WEAR. DESPITE ITS OBESE SIZE, THIS THING SITS REALLY WELL ON THE WRIST. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE DETAILS ON THE DIAL OF THIS ONE, AND IT WEARS LIKE AN ABSOLUTE DREAM. THIS IS A REALLY NICE EXAMPLE WHICH IS BEGGING TO PARTY DOWN ON THE RIGHT(OR LEFT ) WRIST.
