    Early Father's Day Gift! A Grail Pogue!

    I just received this Seiko grail from cheshirecatiii. I can not begin to tell you how much I love this watch! This Pogue 6139-6005 is in incredible shape for a watch made in April 1972, and it is in perfect working condition. As many of you know the Seiko 6139 was the first automatic chronograph to achieve serial production and this particular dial, bezel, inner bezel, and bracelet variation was worn by Colonel Pogue during the NASA Mission, and was the first automatic chronograph in space. This one will be worn once in a blue moon, stored in a safe, and given to my son when he is old enough to appreciate the significance of such a great timepiece.

    That is a sweet watch, congrats. While I wouldn't wear it re-roofing the house I think it deserves a fair amount of wrist time, too gorgeous (and historical) to keep it stored away.

    Very nice. Enjoy it in good health.

    I will agree with Seabee1 though, wear it often. Everyone should have a chance to see that watch, do it for them.

    Beautiful, and I love the dial variation - congrats on scoring the actual "water 70m resist" Pogue one!

    Mine says 'hi'. My preschool daughters like operating the chrono :)

    Great piece indeed, congratulations.

    Been chasing one myself and with a little luck might be joining the club.

    Cheers Michael
