    Very cool. Never seen those in a real life picture before, only ads.

    Very nice dial color and looks pretty massive.

    Very nice one, Sherry Are you the first (and only) owner.

    Question: are the blue ones also considered Pogue's? I thought (wrongly maybe) only the yellow / gold dialed versions are called Pogue's.
    From what I've seen, these sell for stupid money. I really want to add a (gold dial) Pogue to my collection, but seeing the curren prices, I highly doubt I ever will.

    No, I'm not the first owner. This one showed up at one of my watchmakers, and I snapped it up. I had a gold-dialled 6139 back in the 70's, sold it, and wanted another so I grabbed this one and had the watchmaker service it.

    I think, strictly speaking, the gold-dialled 6139s are the true "Pogue", since that's the version Col. Pogue wore on Skylab. But I've heard it used loosely to describe both the blue and gold dialled 6139 in this particular case/bezel combination.
