Arguably the most sought after vintage Seiko chronograph, the Pogue got its namesake from American astronaut William ‘Bill’ Pogue, who spent almost 3 months on the Skylab space station in 1973 and 1974, and famously wore a yellow dial Seiko 6139 while doing so.
A wonderful watch with a very funky, colourful 1970s styling, the Pogue is a joy to wear. This example is a nice, fully original example, a one-owner watch with the original and correct dial and hands (nicely aged), as well as matching Seiko bracelet.
