Have not done so, but I'm definitely posting this photo or this watch on my Instagram before 2019. Significant year for the pogues. Arguably the first automatic chronograph.



Awesome!

Seiko is a true manufacture - they have some wonderful artists working on their design teams.

While at my internist's office last year, I noticed one of the nurses . . .

. . . wearing a Pogue.  Of course, I had to start up a conversation.

"Cool Seiko.  Where did you get it?"

"Oh, that was my grandfather's.  He was a watch collector.  When he died in Mexico, his family took all his watches.  This was the only one left."

I told him how significant his Seiko was.  His face lit up.

"Wow, I had no idea.  My cousins took the Swiss watches and left this for me.  They probably didn't know, either."

I let him know my watchmaker, who trained at Seiko, would be able to service it for him, and given the value, both personal and intrinsic, that servicing sooner rather than later would be sensible.

He took down my watchmaker's phone number, and said he'd get on it asap.

Months later, I went back and lo and behold, the same nurse was assigned to check me in.  He was wearing the Pogue.

"Gosh, that was fast.  How's it running now?"

"Oh, I never took it in.  Too busy."

;-(

That’s a very cool story!

What are the odds of bumping into someone wearing a pogue? I never see them in the wild.....

Thanks for sharing, Dr No smile

The odds are even less considering the guy . . .

. . . isn't even a collector.  It was a family heirloom, and a discarded one at that.
