For your consideration is a March 1974 6139-6012 “Bruce Lee” Automatic Chronograph. All components except for the bracelet are original to the watch (dial, hands, case, crown, pushers and all mechanical components).
The watch is completely original unto itself and is in excellent working condition. The case has not been polished and shows wear commensurate with the watch. The dial is original to the watch and has a date stamp that is one month prior to the case date (42 — see the images) . The dial has an interesting contrasting sub-register that has some minor surface patina. The dial and hands retain their original lume. The hands reset exactly to their vertical positions. The minute hand paint has had a touch up to eliminate minor chips. Bracelet is a “Railroad” that very closely matches the original bracelet style. The crystal is a new Klein Hardlex replacement.

I serviced this watch on 05/26/2022. That process includes a full cleaning and evaluation of all movement components and proper lubrication and the installation of two new jewels in the arbor ports (a $180 upgrade). Lubricants are 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.
