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 Stunning! December 6, 2017
Reviewer: Peter Goh from Macgregor, ACT Australia  
After some lengthy pondering, I decided on the sapphire crystal over the acrylic on the basis of past experience. My only acrylic crystal watch is a Vostok Amphibia; despite being very careful, it still ended up with scratches after only a few days of wearing. Though not as close to the original version as the acrylic, the Seagull 1963 Sapphire is still stunning. At 38mm, it's a bit small for my wrist but it does look very good and captivating. I waited 16 days for it to arrive in Canberra (Australia) from Long Island, New York. At a very reasonable US$5 for freight, the wait was well worth it. Thank you very much, Marc.

Reviewer: Anol Bhattacharya from Singapore, Singapore Singapore  
Only reason I bought the watch because of the video in YouTube by Marc. But I could not believe how lovely it is until holding it in my hand.

Good watch with fast shipping October 9, 2017
Reviewer: Ho Hin Pong from Hong Kong, Northern Hong Kong  
Good update communication throughout the transaction from Island watch. Awesome hand wind working with a clear & simple dial make it a tasteful Chinese military watch fir my collection. Personal opinion it should be perfect if use a larger 42-45 case.
