For your consideration is an October 1974 6139-6005 “Blue Pogue” Automatic Chronograph. All components are original to the watch (dial, hands, case, crown, pushers, bracelet and all mechanical components).
The watch is completely original unto itself and I would rate the cosmetic condition excellent — one of the best I’ve ever seen. The case has not been polished and shows all of the original surface brushing and high polish edges — it is in amazing condition for the age. All components are completely original and they were from the factory. The hands reset exactly to their vertical positions and have incredibly preserved lume. Bracelet is the original tapered H-Link that came with this watch from the factory and is full length (will fit an 8 inch wrist). The crystal is a new Klein Hardlex glass replacement.

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 is a flat fee using USPS international priority.
