SOLD — Seiko 6139-6012 “Blue Bruce Lee”



For your consideration is an August 1972 6139-6012 “Bruce Lee” Automatic Chronograph. All components original to this watch (dial, hands, case, pushers, crown, and all mechanical components). 


The watch is in excellent working condition. The case remains unpolished and I would rate the condition as excellent vintage. The dial is original and all hands are original to the watch. The dial is the beautiful Seiko “deep blue” sunburst pattern and has a date stamp one month prior to the caseback (27 — see images).  The dial and hands retain their original Seiko factory lume. The chronograph hands reset exactly to their vertical positions. This watch is listed without a bracelet or strap, but if you are interested in adding one, please let me know. The crystal is a new Klein Hardlex replacement.
