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.

Absolutely beautiful watch. February 22, 2019
Reviewer: CF from Richmond, BC Canada  
This watch turns heads, gets more attention than any other watch in my collection. The dial is beautiful. The only thing I did was change the strap because the Nato strap smells funny and its really bad quality. But the strap is no big deal.

For the price this is just awesome. I got mines in a green box with a star in the middle and not the tin or other plane boxes.

Seagull 1963 38mm Sapphire February 21, 2019
Reviewer: Rick up in Maine from Owls Head, ME United States  
Absolutely Gorgeous watch!  Shipping was fast - in spite of a snow storm.

The watch is exactly as described - just a wonderful piece.   Island Watch is now on my 'favorites bar' for sure.   I am sure I will be buying from these guys again.

Thanks,

Rick

PS:  I have had this watch for  a little over a week now - I am amazed to see that it is running only  3- 4 seconds fast per day - Darn good for a wind up watch I do believe!

Issue with Chronograph February 14, 2019
Reviewer: Yueyang Li from Montreal, QC Canada  
I just received the watch, and I was initially very happy with it. However, I realized that there is an issue with the chronograph: sometimes the minute hand doesn’t move despite the second hand passing the 60 second mark. I checked it with an electric timer and when 7 minutes had elapsed, the chronograph read 4 minutes. The red second hand moves perfectly. I can provide a video of this issue. Thanks.
