For your consideration is a February 1971 6139-7001 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 is in excellent mechanical condition. The case has not been polished and shows wear commensurate with the age of the watch. The dial and case back dates are one month apart (11) — see images. The hands reset exactly to their vertical positions. Hands and dial retain the original factory lume and paint. The lume has taken on a beautiful buttery yellow. The bracelet is the original Stelux brand “fish-bone” style and is in very good condition. The crystal is a new Klein Hardlex replacement.

I serviced this watch on 11/02/2022. 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 +/- 3 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.
