Hello from the desert southwest!
I discovered this site doing research on a Seiko World Time I received as a gift from my father (an all original 6117-6409, Dec 1971, white linen dial). There are a couple of good posts that lead me here via Google, one on the 6217 and another on the 6117.
I currently have 3 vintage Seiko World Time watches (the above mentioned 6117-6409 with white dial from 1971, a 6117-6400 with black dial from 1976 and a 6217-7000 with black dial from 1964), along with several Swiss and German watches (Omega, Breitling, IWC, Nomos, etc).
I've caught the collector's bug on these vintage Seiko World Time watches and am working on a Google Doc that will breakdown / detail each model / generation from 1964 through 1979. More on that in another thread.
I can't figure out how to add a photo - here's a Google Photo link - of my Seikos:

If I wanted to add a fully sorted, serviced, all original example of a Pogue in very good to excellent condition - from a reliable source (so I don't have to spend 3 weeks studying every detail) - what would those be going for reasonably? Do they popup often?
I think it would fit my small "space watches" collection... which may also get a Gagarin ...
