Hodinkee decided to "get in on the act" writing a "buyers guide" on the vintage automatic Seiko chronographs!
http://www.hodinkee.com/blog/2012/5/31/ ... guide.html
Unfortunately, they seemed to have missed the mark ... in a big way!!
Check out this thread @ PWC where this Hodinkee article was "discovered" ...
http://philippinewatchclub.org/forum/vi ... 21&t=16169
Especially see my comments on it [Ninja01] & the response/comment I wrote & tried to post @ Hodinkee about their rather problemmatical article!!
If you go to that buying guide link, you'll see that my comments did NOT get past their filtering ... are they afraid of the truth??
Too bad they are really doing a dis-service to the 6139 & 6138 calibres of Seiko automatic Chronograph calibers of 1969 & the 1970s!!
I'm trying again today, submitted a new comment for them pointing out the dial "problems" with their example of a Kuro Uma (6138-004x Black Bullhead)
Sigh!! Don't you just hate it when people spread lies about our favorite Japanese watches or ???
The Patron Saint of Seiko Collectors
What you are doing is helping those of us who care. Your in depth knowledge and research is indisputable.
Those other folks are in the business of selling and they probably don't really care if their data is faulty. They are obviously feeling 'loss of face' so I don't find it surprising that your comments are dismissed or deleted.
Keep strong and the truth will prevail
You have provided a resource(on Seikoholics) for any collector, that is not likely surpassed in detail and accuracy anywhere else on the Internet!
