SOLD — Seiko 6139-6012 “Bruce Lee”



For your consideration is an April 1973 6139-6012 “Bruce Lee” Automatic Chronograph. All components original to this watch (dial, hands, case, pushers, crown, bracelet, and all mechanical components). 


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 matte black a date stamp two months prior to the case back (32 — see images).  The dial and hands retain their original Seiko factory lume. The minute hand required a small amount of reinforcement of the existing lume. The chronograph hands reset exactly to their vertical positions. The crystal is a new and correct Klein Hardlex.
