The Lazarus Watch: Restoring a “Franken-Seiko” 6139 Chronograph
In this story from 2018, Mark McArthur-Christie takes us through the restoration of a vintage Seiko 6139 chrono that needed some serious attention. Not all watches that we buy second hand are going to be in immaculate condition, but as Mark’s experience proves, that doesn’t mean that something less than perfect is a lost cause. This is a great step-by-step account of everything that went into getting this 6139 into working order, and looking nice on the wrist.
