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.

The the watch October 24, 2018
Reviewer: Wayne from MARLTON, NJ United States  
I learned about Island Watch from The Urban Gentry videos and I then started watching Marc's videos. I've bought a couple of watches here and there will be more.

I love the Seagull 1963.  From the photos and video I thought the watch looked ok, but maybe a little dull. What drew me to it was the beautiful Swiss-designed movement and low price for a mechanical chronograph.  The watch looked much better in person than it did in photos. The more I wear it the more I love it. Usually after a week of wearing the same watch I'm ready to give a different watch some wrist time, but it's been 2 weeks straight and I have no desire to switch to one of my other ones yet. This is definitely a favorite in my collection.

Reviewer: Stephen Rappolt from Highland Park, QLD Australia  
This watch has the look & character of a high end vintage time piece...a little gem. Thanks to Marc & the Long Island watch team, I couldn't be happier.
