Whaaaat? Why? How? They seem to be multiplying , the 6139 has become the new 6309 for me...another few incomplete donors that will improve ones I already have with enough leftovers to make another complete one. I have decided that a 6309 -704X and a 6139-600X is all I would need to be happy as a WIS.
I here you. It started with a innocent phone call fron the wife about a 6005 resist dial Pogue. Now I have 2 complete 6005 1 partial 6005 and I'm working on acquiring another one. Then the big parts swap and servicing will commence.
About two months ago, a friend of mine , bougth this pogue and he shows me, when I see it, I explain to him that it was a very good piece, proof, notched case , date of fabrication, etc, etc.
a few days ago, he came and says: I have bougth another one, but a normal one, then I give it for you because you will appreciate it.
Anyone knows something about this crystal, with a metal ring?
I actually read somewhere recently about the early ones having some metal ring around the crystal.. i can't remember.. i'd be doing some researching into the 6000 designation and see where that leads you.
Here's my Pogue i just got back from a service on Saturday. It's a "true pogue" as far as dial combination and 6005 model number goes. It's from July '72. I swapped the dial and movement into my better case, along with a better correct early lighter blue bezel insert and a better yellow rotating ring.
I honestly think this thing is gorgeous.. and the dial is almost immaculate. It also has the water resist text which i really prefer over the non resist text models.

Interesting thread on Pogue inserts on TOF, some inserts, under the 60 where the red meets the blue @12 o clock, there is (or in some cases isn't) a white square marker. checked mine...5 don't have it, one does, they are all original. Never noticed that. Is it something that Seiko did on later models? 4 of mine are resist, the one with the marker I bought separately because it looked almost NOS (bezel and insert) so I don't know if it was produced later. Any insight? Can you guys check your inserts, and she'd some light?
