About Seiko 6139

The 1970s introduced the world to some lasting style icons that are increasingly in demand today, and looking down at your wrist to check the time, you take pride in your own little slice of history. That is exactly what the Seiko 6139 is, a piece of history. More commonly known as the Seiko Speedtimer, it was one of the first automatic chronograph watches ever made. The large round face contains a number of subdials for accurate time keeping, including a 30-minute subdial and an optional 1-hour subdial. The namesake Speedtimer is a major element of the watch, and the quick set day and date feature means no complicated fiddling. The iconic status of the watch is due to the fact that it was the first automatic chronograph worn in space, by Col. William Pogue. There is a wide range of Seiko 6139 models to choose from. Thanks to the large inventory on eBay, you can find anything from the unique Seiko 6139 Pepsi edition, to replacement Seiko 6139 parts. You can check the time with precision and style with any variant of this classic.
