Seagull 1963 Hand Wind Mechanical Chronograph with Acrylic Crystal #6345A-2901

This special edition watch is an official remake of the 1963 Chinese Airforce chronograph, a unique and classic masterpiece now coveted by collectors nearly as much as the original. This new updated version has a 38mm polished stainless steel case with a retro acrylic crystal (front) and an exhibition window back. The gold tint creme dial features goldtone numbers and markers and a red star under the 12:00 position. 19 ZUAN on the dial indicates the movement has 19-jewels. The movement is a Seagull No. ST19 mechanical (hand winding) chronograph with 21,600 VPH and shock protection. Power reserve is about 45 hours on a full wind without the chronograph running.

The Seagull chronograph uses a column wheel. In this design, the key component is a small rotating cylinder with teeth at the top, not unlike a castle turret. As the chronograph buttons are pressed, the column wheel rotates and levers fall in between the teeth to drive the functions. The column wheel movement is considered by most watch enthusiasts to be the most desirable, since it requires the greatest skill to design and build correctly and it is thought to be the most durable.

The sub-dial on the left is the running seconds counter and the sub-dial on the right is a 30-minute timer. The red seconds hand is activated when you click the pusher at 2:00. The outer portion of the black dial is marked in seconds. The watch comes with a olive green NATO-Style strap.

Great value June 22, 2017
Reviewer: James Donabed from Fresno, CA United States  
I have been fascinated with mechanical watches since age 7. This watch exceeded expectation at an affordable cost.

It plays well with the applied indices, blue "color" hands and the domed crystal.

Although I own 40+ mm watches, this 38 mm
Chrono is perfect with the uncluttered dial.

Marc responded to all emails promptly and continues to do so on other models of interest.

Seagull 63 June 16, 2017
Reviewer: Richard Bonzani from Mokena, IL United States  
As a fan of military watches I must say that this Chinese made Seagull 1963 is absolutely gorgeous. It looks totally vintage, especially with the domed acrylic crystal. The dial is beautiful as is the movement which is visible through the exhibition case. The fact that it's a chronograph with a mechanical movement at this price is a huge plus. The only thing I don't like is the strap. But that will be easily replaced.

Great service, great watch August 3, 2016
Reviewer: Mark Pagano from Allentown, PA United States  
First time buying with Long Island and they had excellent service , in a timely manner they said ship in two days and it shipped in two days.the watch is beautiful and a steal for a chronograph at $300 considering it's really a Swiss mov in the watch. I look forward to doing buisness with Long Island watch again.
