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.

Seagull 1963 Hand Wind Mechanical Chronograph with July 10, 2018
Reviewer: Will from Texas  
Beautiful reissue of the seagull 1963.  Has been running at +7s/day which is satisfactory for hand wind mechanical at this price point.

Great value watch.  Best thing it has going for it is it is Chinese, so it's market value is lowered.  Performs exceptionally well and is a great looking homage.

Great service June 26, 2018
Reviewer: Sam from Winnipeg, MB Canada  
Will definitely buy from again.  Shipped to Canada and had zero problems, except for paying duty on the watch of course.

Love the watch June 12, 2018
Reviewer: Chen Su from Virginia Beach, VA United States  
I love this watch. Pretty much a daily driver for me. The package came to me at the expected date and I couldn’t be happier with the product itself. Thanks.

SEAGULL #6345G-2901 June 5, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Falls Church, VA United States  
Excellent watch and very satisfied. Hard to distinguish between acrylic and sapphire crystal.
Apparently, there is another (more authentic to the 1963 reissue chinese air force watch) version, that comes with a tin box and has additional chinese characters (Chungkuo) on the face of the watch below at the 6 o'clock position.

My next purchase will be a Graf Zeppelin Hindenburg LZ129.
