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.

5 of 5 Seagull 1963 chronograph November 15, 2019
Reviewer: Joseph Pearce from New York, NY United States  
Great watch at a great price, genuine history and a column wheel chronograph! I love the dial layout and the color contrasts!! The case is well shaped too and has interesting lines and angles to enjoy. The crystal is super fat and curved which adds to the authenticity of this replica, I definitely feel like I’m wearing a watch from 1963 🤩 the movement is really well finished considering the price and adds to the enjoyment of the watch, also winding is surprisingly clean, with a solid mechanical feel, also the chrono pushes are firm and clunk nicely when you deploy or rest the chronograph. I would highly recommend this watch, an amazing addition to a true watch enthusiasts collection - lots of bang for you buck

5 of 5 a good start to a collection March 29, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Chappaqua, NY United States  
Dipping my toes in the rabbit hole of amassing watches... This chronograph's history and origin has personal relevance and it's a nice watch/unique dial color/column wheel and great price point too! Good fit for a 6 1/2" wrist. If there was one nit, the hands "bluing" (it's paint I read), looks nice and deep, compatible with the red star, in some angles, but gaudy-neon in others. One other nit - the nato strap is not going to last, so will plan on getting a leather one soon.
