Time to branch out from my usual divers and the 6139 is really catching my eye (and apparently everybody else's these days).
I have a pretty staid set of automatics: a SKX399, SKX401, a Dagaz TII with classic black dial (a 6105 homage), and a blue Sumo. So mostly all blacks and one blue. I have never worn gold jewelry - my wedding band is tungsten (or was platinum until a surf trip... sigh). The pepsi bezel on the SKX401 was what really got me interested in the 6139.
The three iterations of the 6139 600x look great to me... wondering about people's thoughts on colorways:
- The real Pogue (yellow) looks amazing and has the backstory. But I can't tell if the gold dial is beyond my style, or if it would be a welcome change. Is it flashy? Does it attract too much attention?
- The blue watch is easy call for me, it fits right in with my existing collection. But could be boring. I can't tell how the dial plays in sunlight... most pics make it look dark and matte. Any thoughts on this color? Is it matte?
- The silver one represents somewhat of a happy medium: not as flashy as the gold dial, but a bit dressier and different than yet another black/blue dialed watch. It also seems to be slightly less common?
All thoughts welcome - especially those on style, collectability and anything else I should be aware of.
