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.

Great experience once again June 15, 2018
Reviewer: Brad Lavis from Meridian, ID United States  
Everything from Marc's informative youtube video on the watch, to the purchase, the fast shipping, and finally having the watch in-hand...just perfect.  LIW is my "no worries" watch source.

As far as the Seagull 1963 goes, I'm glad I took the chance where others remain skeptical.  It's a fantastic watch with an interesting story behind it.

Nice variety of fine watches, great customer servi March 16, 2018
Reviewer: Edward Dim from SCOTTSDALE, AZ United States  
I've bought several watches from this shop. Some is loyalty having grown up im North Jersey and NYC. Mainly it's the customer service and variety. They carry something for everyone, all fine quality from entry level to higher end chrono's. Being new to collecting I've found this a great source for some  information and a bit of history.
Thanks for all the work you put into your "Youtube videos and "Watch & Learn.
