I've been excited by this one all week, checking the mail box eagerly, then whilst I was out yesterday the postman came and left me a delivery note, so it was off to the post office yesterday arvo with bated breath...

Here's the parcel:



well wrapped (though worryingly it rattled slightly)

Open it:



The original box!



and look inside:



A quick clean up and swapped the bracelet and we have:



a Slide Rule Chrono 6138-7000, which after tightening a few screws is in perfect working order, keeping perfect time, chrono snaps crisply to zero:


And all for $50 australian from the bay!!!

Happy? Me?

The renovation starts here, new crystal and NOS cursor ring ordered - the case needs refinishing and the bezel is a bit loose.

Anyone got an instruction manual fro the bezel? I've worked out multiplication, division, rate of climb and sine...(sort of) but I'd love to see the original instructions.

Judging from the pictures it looks like the crystal cleaned up quite well, very nice! I need to pick me up a vintage chronograph.
Yes, acrylic crystals clean up pretty easily if they don't have really deep scratches. This one has a couple of hairline cracks around the edge, so I'll be popping in a new one.

The 6138 and 6139 chronos are fantastic watches and CAN be bought for very little cash if you're lucky!
