SOLD – Seiko 6138-8020 Panda



For your consideration is an August 1974 6138-8020 “Panda” Automatic Chronograph — perhaps one of the most desirable vintage Seikos. All components original to the watch (dial, hands, case, and all mechanical components).

Height: 15mm
Lug width: 19mm


The watch is completely original unto itself and I would rate the cosmetic condition as a 8.0/10. The case has not been polished and shows age and wear commensurate with a 40+ year old watch but is in amazing condition for the age. The dial is original to the watch and has a date stamp with one month prior to the same month as the case date (47). The dial is the most amazing linen pattern with the beautiful off-green sub-dials has the “panda patina”, which is not damage to the lacquer or surface. The dial and hands retain the very clean factory applied lume. The hands reset exactly to their vertical positions. The watch comes on a brown leather band. The crystal is a new replacement.


I serviced this watch on 12/17/2021. That process includes a full cleaning and evaluation of all movement components and proper lubrication. Lubricants used were Moebius synthetic varieties appropriate for this watch movement type. The amplitude numbers are 240-250 range and the rate is +/- 2 sec/day. The case back, pushers and crown all have new, and factory correct seals.

This watch comes with a 100% money back promise of originality and a 1-year limited warranty on the movement from the time of sale. Shipping is to CONUS through USPS 2-day. International buyers must contact me for a shipping quote.
