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.

Watch did not work after waiting over 2 weeks. August 16, 2018
Reviewer: Jason Tulumello from Kitchener, ON Canada  
Upon receiving my Seagull 1963 38mm saphire crystal it did not work as intended. The watch would only work 5-10minutes before stopping and the start button on the chronograph straight up did not work.

Reviewer: polyhronis apostolakis from novi, MI United States  
This watch is a special little piece.  the polishing is really well done.  the movement and furthermore the dial all work really well together.  the strap is worthless so invest in something nice...  Island Watch was a pleasure to work with.

Most accurate mechanical watch I've ever owned. August 1, 2018
Reviewer: John Seals from Beaverton, AL United States  
Trying to make this short and to the point- this is the most accurate mech. I have ever owned- gained one minute in three months. It's beautiful but not over the top, a real conversation starter- but still subdued and classy- and it has a unique mvmnt and military history behind it- not often a piece checks that many boxes.  I've had mine for months and I love it- works in casual or formal environments.
