A versatile vintage racing chronograph, the 7012 is perfect for those looking to find one watch for all occasions. The case offers a slimmer profile than most others in the 6139 line up, and its soft tonneau shape is comfortable and well proportioned.
At 41mm, it's not overpowering, but has plenty of presence on the wrist. The bezel is polished and beveled for a clean finish, and beneath it is a gradient coffee and cream dial with a nice balance of text and color. This example from October 1971 has aged nicely.
The Speed Timer logo sits opposite the day (Kanji/English) and date window in fiery orange and is complemented by the 1/5 second track at the dials edge. The original luminous material on the markers and hands has developed an even khaki patina, and the bright white hour and minute hands are easily legible. The chronograph hands standout in bright orange and lend well to the racing aesthetic. Breaking up the dark backdrop, the minute track is segmented in white blocks, and the fixed chapter has a clean white tachymetric scale. The 6139B is keeping near perfect time post service, and the chronograph functions are crisp and responsive.
While it has been checked, tested, and is working well, it is a delicate instrument and I cannot guarantee that it will arrive in the same condition. I will not guarantee anything other than that.
