Seagull 1963 Hand Wind Mechanical Chronograph with Sapphire Crystal #6345G-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 sapphire crystal (front) and an exhibition case back. The gold tint creme dial features goldtone numbers and markers and a red star under the 12:00 position. The movement is a Seagull No. ST21 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.

Seagull 1963 reissue January 14, 2017
Reviewer: Paul Gibson from Brooklyn, NY United States  
wonderful experience with Long Island Watch; excellent communication with the owner --Marc about this particular watch.  I really like this unique, chinese watch --a bit smaller than i anticipated but works for my smaller wrist.  I opted for the sapphire crystal because the casing is a tad deeper than other watches; feels like it would be more susceptible to catching corners and such.
This is the second watch I purchased from Long Island Watch, the other being a Graf Zeppelin, another curious and interesting watch.

Broken winder December 29, 2016
Reviewer: Lucy Waugh from Farnham, Surrey United Kingdom  
Very disappointed. The watch winder has broken and now just spins around. Given that we are in the U.K. What do we do next.

Seagull 1963 hand wind Chronograph September 11, 2016
Reviewer: Meltdowngrfx from Chicago, IL United States  
I received my Seagull 1963 38 mm hand-winding chronograph quickly and in perfect working shape. I love hand winding watches, and saw many positive reviews online of this watch and I feel it was an excellent value for a column wheel chronograph. I especially like the vintage looking dial. I would not hesitate buying from Island Watch again.

Good looking watch July 15, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Orinda, CA United States  
I really like the look of this watch. The first one I got was defective. The chronograph minute counter was not advancing correctly. It was quickly replaced and I am very happy with the second one.
