or Seiko 6139-6002

In 1973, Colonel William Pogue brought his Seiko 6139 Automatic Chronograph on board the Skylab 4 mission as part of his personal kit. He had purchased the watch from the PX at Ellington AFB, and although the watch wasn’t Flight-Approved by NASA, he was allowed to bring it on the flight.

i am pleased with it, the colour scheme should not realy work, but it does scratch i am amazed by the crown, talk about multi function, half push: date, full push: day, turn in run position rotates the inner bezel and pull out for time setting.......all from one crown ....amazing IMO Very Happy
