    Hi guys,
    I am thinking about buying this watch for my "space watch" collection.
    I studied a lot searching the tips for identifying an original watch and these seem legit to me but I would like your opinion.

    number 1
    Seller state :
    100% original
    Fully serviced
    Water-resistant tested and certified
    Serial 10 1971

    On both watches, everything but the bracelet on the first one look original to me.
    The one I like most is the first one, because of the slight patina on dial and the Resist at 9.
    I don't know if it's been relumed, but in this case someone did a good job.
    On the second one I don't like the lume almost completely dark and the inner bezel turned to white.
    Anyway, before buying be sure to receive pics of the movement and that inner bezels turn correctly by the crown as well.

    Thank you for this fastest answer, Yes the first one is relumed, I forgot to say it before.
    They ask about 800 euro

    A bit on the high side imho, what about service history?
    Every time I see one of these being handled with white gloves, I get a little concerned :)

    Edit: fully serviced, I didn't read well, sorry for that.
    What about service receipt, then ;)

    It seems a lot 800 euro for suck kind of watch you can find many Pugue but find a decent one is a nightmare

    IMO that money can buy you better quality. There are lots of Pogues around. Most are crappy and have issues, my advice would be to keep hunting until a great one comes around.
    Speaking from my own experience btw ;)

    You are right I am not in a hurry and hunting is a part of the fun :). Also If I'd find a good one too soon , I 'll have to find another watch to hunt :)

    I think some good comments have been made, but if I may add one more: if you want to add to your space collection, maybe you should be looking for a 'true' pogue Speedtimer, the -6005 and not the 6002?

    Also, the 2nd one looks like has been polished as well, if that's something you'd be concerned about.

    This last one seems the most honest imo.. Show us the date of the first one, as the "resist" dials were up to a point. To add to the afformentioned comments about the bracelet and the lume, it has differnet colour chrono/subdial hands. I wouldn't pay 800 for that watch but that's just me anyway.

    Also be certain the watch you are after had a service and ask proof of that. The chronograph wheel on the 6139 movements (both A and B), if is bad, it can't be fixed, and a new one, if you can find it, is 150-200€. So the service cost approaching the 400-450€ point if that is the case. You don't want to pay 800 and not be sure if it was serviced.

    Hi, mine has a service dial.
    Yours has a dial which looks like a lot to mine.
    So, how would you check it is an original one?... 20210214_115129.jpg

    You are right about cautions but in the last months, I was looking for a 6139 the price is always on this level even for worst one with AM parts.
    I saw "pogue " wenr for 1500 euro (!)
    The problem with this one is, as far as I know, service and not the original bracelet.
