A great example of this 1970s classic, the 6139-6002 is famed for unofficially going up to space on the wrist of Col. William Pogue in 1973 on the Skylab 4 Mission. Pogue used the watch in addition to his NASA issued Speedmaster to time the engine burn on his ascent into space.
The watch has great wrist presence for a watch of this period and is a fantastic addition to any collection!
