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.

Nice Watch. June 28, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Mississauga, ON Canada  
Amazing watch for the value. Hand winding chronograph at this price is incredible. Sapphire crystal is more practical than the mineral crystal, but the mineral crystal is true to the original. No problems with the case or movement so far, and its 38 mm size is a bit more conservative, which I enjoy. It came to Canada very fast, in 8 days. Long Island Watch service was very good.

Nice entry automatic chronograph June 1, 2017
Reviewer: Francisco from Villahermosa, Tabasco Mexico  
You can't have a better automatic chronograph for this price. The dial has a nice reaction to the light and the sapphire is nice for the long term. I often get the nato strap out and enjoy the view of the movement.
The buy was swift and sound, with the personal assistance of Marc.

A very interesting piece. April 20, 2017
Reviewer: Jesse Oxendine from Anchorage, AK United States  
This watch stands out not only because of its unique nature but also because of its good looks. I was somewhat torn between the larger model and this one, which is 38mm in diameter. I am happy I chose as I did, it fits nicely and looks as I imagine the original might have.
I did not care for the strap, which I replaced at once with a tan leather Di-Modell.
The service from Island Watch was excellent.
