Original thick flat crystal, it is in excellent condition. Beautiful dial in excellent condition!

***The First Chronograph in Space***
This model also called "Seiko Pogue", because astronaut William R. Pogue (Col. Pogue) wore a 6139-6005 during the NASA Skylab 4 mission in 1973 (see the last picture).

***The World’s First Automatic Chronograph***
In 1969, A few big names produced automatic chronograph. However, when it comes to who first achieved serial production of the automatic chronograph, Seiko may have quietly beaten them by releasing to the Japanese market in May 1969.
