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.

Sea gull 1963 February 2, 2019
Reviewer: Esidoro Ellison from Plainfield, IL United States  
Super fast delivery , great communication, good price. The watch was in perfect shape, cheap strap had to replace immediately, no warranty info or manual included. Marc informed me of this as being usual for the manufacturer.  I was told info is available from LIW website.

Reviewer: Trevor Walker from Salinas, CA United States  
Hey Marc,
Just wanted to let you know how wonderful the little 1963 Air Force Sea-gull chronograph has been! The watch keeps amazing time and while I enjoy bigger pieces decided on the original size with the acrylic crystal! Look forward to buying many more products as Long Island Watches did everything possible to make it a seamless order..

Love the watch, Service is awesome! November 7, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from CA, USA  
This watch is fantastic. There's a ton of reviews of this online so won't bore you with those details. What was way better than this watch was the customer service! Emails responded quickly and Marc's 'customer satisfaction first' mentality is great. Will be looking forward to more purchases from IslandWatch.
