We have for sale this very nice Seiko Yachtman 6138-0011 automatic chronograph.
Nicknamed the UFO, this model is an iconic dual register chronograph from the Seiko range in the 1970s. It was a very advanced movement design with column wheel and vertical clutch.
It is dated April of 1973 according to its serial number.
The watch has just been serviced which included a full strip down of the movement, ultrasonic clean of all parts, re-assembly, lubrication and testing. (Photos taken during the service are available upon request).
We specifically made sure that the case remained unpolished as part of the service, as we believe originality is better for this watch from a collector’s perspective.

Case: all stainless Steel case, screw back stainless steel case back.
Diameter: 44mm, 46mm with crown, 45mm lug to lug
Lug width: 19mm
Crystal: acrylic
Bracelet: original Seiko “razor” bracelet
Movement: Seiko in house calibre 6138B, day, date chronograph (centre seconds, minute subdial, hour subdial). Quickset set day / date by pulling the crown in intermediate position 2.

Detailed Condition report:
This watch is in very nice and original condition overall.
The crystal is flawless, no marks visible.
Slight ageing of the lume on hands and dial. The dial is the 0020T variant.
The stainless steel case is in good condition, some marks are visible, we made sure it was not polished as part of the service.
The watch keeps good time, and consistently goes through its power reserve as one would expect after a service. The quickset day / date works as it should, and so does the chronograph, with seconds and minute and hour hands all resetting sharply to zero.
Water resistance is not guaranteed.
Supplied on rare period Seiko “razor” bracelet, believed to be original.

3 Months warranty from the date of sale.
Warranty excludes bracelet / strap and any damage caused by water ingress or careless use.
