Seiko "Pogue" Automatic Chronograph ref. 6139-6002 (Yellow Dial) Circa July 1971 Wristwatch

Sale price$ 2,500

This vintage Seiko "Pogue" is the definition of cool - How did Seiko pack so many features into one watch while retaining such a balanced and appealing design aesthetic? Colonel William Reid Pogue wore an earlier reference 6139-6005 with yellow "Resist" dial, hence the nickname. This was the first automatic chronograph worn in space during his Skylab 4 mission from November 16, 1973 to February 8, 1974. We love the butterscotch yellow dial and lightly-faded "Pepsi" bezel and inner ring! The quick-set day of the week can be displayed in English or French and Sunday is shown in red.
