Seiko Pepsi Pogue Chronograph – 6139-6002

Seiko Pepsi Pogue Chronograph – 6139-6002


The Seiko 6139 was worn by Colonel William Reid Pogue during the Skylab 4 mission from November 16, 1973 to February 8, 1974. The Seiko Pepsi Pogue Chronograph, has been in space just like the beloved Omega Speedmaster, it can only be had at a more reasonable price for a vintage piece of such provenance.  Technically speaking, the Seiko 6139-6002 is a very simple timepiece and was Seiko’s first attempt at a mass-produced automatic chronograph model. The watch has a 30-minute counter in a single sub-register at 6 o’clock, along with a day and date display at 3 o’clock, but lacks additional registers and a floating-seconds function. Most notably, the 6139-6002 features an internally rotating bezel with tachymeter scale, operated via the crown. The 6139 range was offered with a variety of case shapes and dial variations, but the yellow dial version you see here has become the most iconic! Partly because of his visit to the moon, of course!
