MY WATCH: SEIKO 6138-8039 “JOHN PLAYER SPECIAL”
Worn and Wound
For those who know me and my work, that I’ve chosen to spotlight this watch from my collection should be no surprise at all. I’ve written about the Seiko 6138-8039 “John Player Special” before here on worn&wound, and the6138/9 lines certainly have a lot of fans around these parts. My particular 6138 means a lot more than that, however. It’s not just an under-appreciated vintage chronograph with a unique aesthetic; it’s really part of who I am. If I could point to any object and say, “that’s me,” it would be this watch.
