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.

Beautiful watch. I replaced the NATO strap with a leather strap. Very nice!
Marc is a pleasure to deal with.

Beautiful watch. January 26, 2018
Reviewer: Rob from White Plains, NY United States  
It arrived, in original packaging, it works and it’s beautiful, showing you don’t always have to spend thousands for a beautiful watch. The contrasting colors of hands and other features on the cream face contributes towards the beauty and interestingness factor.

Excellent watch January 26, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from ON Canada  
Just an excellent looking watch. Pictures over the Internet don't do it justice.

If anything, the NATO strap (as many other reviews have stated) could be improved. Only time will tell how long this watch will last and hopefully it will be serviceable in the future even if the movement if fairly uncommon.

Fast shipping and excellent service. Highly recommended.

My first order... January 25, 2018
Reviewer: D. M. Holmes from Spruce Pine, NC United States  
The purchase of the Seagull 1963 with Sapphire Crystal was my first purchase from Long Island Watch and the entire transaction was great!  The watch is awesome as well; if you're waffling as to whether to get it or not...do it.  Assuming I can convince my wife to let me buy another watch, I will be looking to get it here!

Seagull 1963 Red Airforce tribute chronograph January 12, 2018
Reviewer: Dan from Des Moines, WA United States  
Pictures of this watch do not do it justice. The watch just looks "right" in a timeless manner.  The fit and finish are well above the price. I bought the standard 38mm sized sapphire model and fits my large 8 inch wrist nicely.
It shipped and arrived quickly during Christmas holiday. Marc quickly replied my question Christmas eve.
