1969 WAS THE FIRST YEAR FOR AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPHS. THE FIRST THREE WERE THE HEUER CAL:11, THE  ZENITH-MOVADO.EL PRIMERO, AND THE SEIKO 6139 AUTOMATIC COLUMN WHEEL CHRONOGRAPH.

I READ WHERE SOMEONE WROTE 
"You can pick up a serviceable example in nice condition for around the $150-200 mark."

READ THAT CAREFULLY, "SERVICEABLE" . THIS BEAUTY IS NOT SIMPLY SERVICED OVERSEAS, IT WAS SERVICED AND OVERHAULED HERE IN THE GSW/GSWW/MWB STUDIO AND GALLERY.

THUS SEIKO WAS IN GREAT COMPANY IN 12969 WHEN  IT DEVELOPED IT'S FIRST AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPH. THE 6139 IS A SINGLE REGISTER CHRONOGRAPH WITH A 30 MINUTE COUNTER AND    QUICK SET DAY AND DATE.

THE 6139 WITH SINGLE REGISTER AND THE 6138 WITH DUAL REGISTERS WHERE MARKETED UNDER A SERIES OF UNIQUE NAMES, SUCH AS "SPEED-TIMER", BUT THE NAMES 6HAT DEVELOPED FROM IT'S FANS LIKE DARTH VADOR, HELMET, UFO AND ON AND ON DEMONSTRATE JUST HOW POPULAR THEY WERE.

DURING THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS OF THE VIETNAM WAR, THOUSANDS OF SEIKO CHRONOGRAPHS WERE SOLD TO TROOPS.

THEN THERE WAS THE UNAUTHORIZED WEARING OF A 6139 BY COL. WILLIAM POGUEON THE 1973 SKYLAB 4 MISSION THAT MADE THE YELLOW DIALED 6139 FAMOUS AS THE "POGUE" (HE STATED HE TIMED ENGINE BURNS DURING TRAINING) NOTE ALL OF THIS WAS UNAUTHORIZED BY NASA.

THIS MODEL IS THE RARE MODEL WITH 100 NUMERAL INNER TACHY METER INSTEAD OF 60. THIS IS DUE TO THE FACT IT IS A METRIC VERSION.
