I'm in the market for a Seiko 6139. I've been keeping tabs on ebay and found one that looks to be in good condition and for a inexpensive price. Upon closer inspection the dial reads "Japan 7T32" and has the tiny Seiko symbol in the wrong spot (not above the min counter as seen on other similar watches).
I questioned the seller and asked if the dial had been replaced and why it said 7T32 and not 6139, and received the following response:
HELLO SIR, THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST AND IT IS DIAL PAINTING DESIGN AND COLOUR CODE AND IT IS ORIGINAL DIAL AND I WAS PURCHASE AS IS AND SELL AS IS BUT IT IS BEAUTIFUL WITH EXCELLENT CONDITION WATCH.
SIR, I ALWAYS USE DHL COURIER SERVICE SAFE AND FAST AND DELIVERY TIME ONLY 3 TO 5 WORKING DAYS.
Here is the currently active listing: Beautiful Seiko Chronograph Automatic Vintage Japan Watch 6139 6002 Fre SHIP DHL | eBay
I don't believe his/her explanation, but thought I should check here first because i'm fairly new at this.
Also, I've seen the Buyers Guide for the 6139-60xx models, is there a similar guide for the 6139-70xx models?
Thanks in advance for the help.
