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 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.

Seagull 1963 37mm January 4, 2018
Reviewer: Mike Forest from Isleton, CA United States  
Love it. Very accurate and pleasurable to look at, clean.
Perhaps if I had any input, I'd want a slightly fatter hour hand, larger crown and a choice of original band or other. Great watch, anyway.

Seagull1963 hand wind mechanical chronograph with January 2, 2018
Reviewer: Mike Olson from Bismarck, ND United States  
After reading numerous reviews, I chose the 1963 Seagull. It did not disappoint. Beautifully crafted vintage look that has been super reliable. I chose Longisland because of their stellar reputation. The watch came well within a reasonable time frame and was well-packaged. Updates came to me regarding transit and the service was highly professional.

Great watch December 29, 2017
Reviewer: E G Kallen from San Diego, CA United States  
This watch is a deal that can't be beat.  A stainless steel case, signed crown, double chronograph for the price of a much lesser watch.  Too bad it does not have a screw-down crown and hacking.

Only complaint is that the web site offered 5% off if you signed up for thier emails.  Which I did, but got no discount.  They did, however, provide quick delivery.
