It’s just a later variant with a different dial code. Not the same as the earlier 6009t dial.
There's really something new I learn everyday from this great forum...thanks for taking time to share!

Hi, nice to be in this forum. I'm new here and about to make my 1st 6139 purchase. Tons of info here, very glad that I found this thread. Before I finalise the buy, I would like to share the pics of the watch sent by the seller. I couldn't find anything wrong with it, but would appreciate the opinions from the experts here before I pull the trigger

Hello gentlemen. Does this look genuine? The case seems yo be a little beat up.

Chronograph works, the inner bezel ring works. Movt is a bit rusty though.

Please shed your thoughts

Back in the day--when I was not as educated nor discerning when purchasing vintage watches--I bought a Pogue (circa 1977?) that appears to be a 6139-6002 (dial number 6030-R/movement number 6139B). However, I believe I may have purchased a frankenwatch that I hope to nearly return to its original condition. So far it appears that the case back and stem are not original/incorrect. I believe everything else is original. So I have a few questions for the experts:

Note: the watch is disassembled, so no photos. Gold dial with white inner rotating ring, Pepsi bezel, chronograph.

1) The case back is numbered 6139-8030. As stated, I believe the watch is a 6139-6002. And the second character of the six-digit serial number is a letter ("N"). I'm guessing I have the wrong case back. Also, from an ethical standpoint, in my endeavor to seek near originality, would it be misleading to purchase a 6139-6002 case back as a replacement, knowing the serial numbers are not in fact associated with the rest of the watch? Also, would I be overpaying for a 6139-6002 case back in good condition (one major scratch) with an asking price of $150?

2) The rotating white inner ring moves far too easily. That's why I believe this watch came with the 354617 stem, which doesn't have a second rectangular cube for securing the gear that rotates the ring when the crown is in the first (closed) position. I believe I need the 357612 stem. I believe this latter stem will keep the inner ring from moving so easily, which it does by simply wearing it. Thoughts? And thanks.

I came across this today. A Fiji guide from 1975 with a nice advertisement inside :)
