I am relisting the watch. Previously the day wheel was misaligned and now it is fixed and has received a full service including changes of gaskets.
The watch is the JDM only variant, an early model with the notched case at the crown and two-piece sweephand (with the rubber dot). This "Black Pogue" has 3 different reference, 6139-6030 with notched case, and 6139-6031 and 6139-6032 with none notched case which came later. Dial is clean original matte black with orange Speedtimer logo. The lumes on the hour markers are all original and have developed light cream patina. The subregister on the dial has developed slight patina. The white hour and minute hands are original with matching lumes. Sweepsecond and subregister hands are original yellow in color with the subregister hand fading to a lighter color.
The inner bezel is original countdown type with original triangle lume at 12 and nice orange 1/5th of a second markers going from 12 counter clockwise to 3. This inner bezel can be turned nicely with the crown in pushed in position.
Outer bezel is original "coke", red and black, with some scratches due to age and usage but still highly legible. The case is all original unpolished where we can see the circular factory lines in front. The case still retains its sharp beautiful angles with hairline scratches and small dings here and there from age and usage (the watch is 49 years old!).
Movement is clean 21 jewels (the non JDM has 17 jewels), recently serviced. The watch is running normally and keeping a good time. Chrono functions work flawlessly (starts, stops, resets to zero with sure clicks). The date and day setting also work by pusing the crown inwards (slightly tu change the date and all the way to change the day). The day wheel is Kanji Japanese and English.
I'm asking USD 800 (watch only, including a standard nato strap) including paypal fee delivered worldwide. I will consider offers from serious buyers. Let me know if interested.
Thank you all!
