Seagull 1963 Hand Wind Mechanical Chronograph with Goldtone Dial #6488-2901C

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 updated version has a 42mm polished stainless steel case with a mineral crystal exhibition case back (the original was a smaller 38mm size). The goldish-brown dial features goldtone numbers and markers and a red star under the 12:00 position. The hour and minute hands are dark blue in color. The 21 ZUAN on the dial indicates the movement has 21-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 lug with is 22mm and the watch now comes with a gold-brown and black striped NATO-style strap.

Reviewer: Kenneth Cusse from Phoenix, AZ United States  
This watch is a head turner, with its elegant classy historical look. It fits my wrist well, and is functional with its chronometer function. Easy to read.

Seagull 1963 May 3, 2018
Reviewer: Rodrick DEPAZ from Le François, France Martinique  
This is the second Seagull 1963 that I bought. This one is for me in the 42 size. The first one was the 38 for my GF.
We love them both.
Thank you Long Island Watch!

I received a defective watch at first. I was very impressed with how quickly Marc resolved the issue by sending me a replacement. I highly recommend purchasing from him.

I would have preferred.... April 30, 2018
Reviewer: Mark Slafkes from Fort Bragg, CA United States  
There was no documentation included with the watch.  That is why I don't give this five stars.  I was told I could download documentation from Long Island's website.  I was disappointed about that.  Otherwise, the watch is excellent and as best I can tell it's 5 seconds fast per day.  Really fine!
