New birth year incoming :rock:

Post by PGERRITY » Thu Oct 06, 2016 8:55 pm

So I've been looking for a birth year watch and came across this beauty. 1977 Seiko 6139-6005 all original, never polished, fully restored and serviced by Spencer Klein. I am absolutely pumped about having my first vintage piece, especially a 77 and such a unique looking one too.

Congrats :thumbsup: I been looking for a birth year watch for some time. But being born in 1958 the cool ones from that year are just to pricy for me. I even looked into military issued like this one check the price
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SUPER-RARE-VI ... 7675.l2557
You younger members got better choices and prices for me it sucks a Rolex sub from 58 is even out of the question.

That looks awesome. Can't believe that's your first vintage, though. Congrats.

Thanks! Vintage scares me because I just don't know enough to buy right. But this one being recently done over and having a couple of videos on you tube chronicling the process for this particular watch made me feel easier. Also it's not a Rolex so there's that too.

I've had a few of those.

Best part about yours is the fact it's serviced.

Congrats!

Kickass !! That looks awesome.

I'm all about the birth year watches. I have a birth year watch for each member of my family (wife and 2 sons) and 2 for myself.

Congrats on the sweet find

Pat.. 77 is MY birth year.. have been having an itch to search for a birth year as well and Seiko is indeed the brand I was thinking of...
Awesome acquisition.. love it for as long as this sickness lets you and if you plan on letting it go, give me a holler.
