Seagull 1963 Hand Wind Mechanical Chronograph with Goldtone Dial #6488-2901C

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 updated version has a 42mm polished stainless steel case with a mineral crystal exhibition case back (the original was a smaller 38mm size). The goldish-brown dial features goldtone numbers and markers and a red star under the 12:00 position. The hour and minute hands are dark blue in color. The 21 ZUAN on the dial indicates the movement has 21-jewels. The movement is a Seagull No. ST19 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 dial is marked in seconds. The lug with is 22mm and the watch now comes with a gold-brown and black striped NATO-style strap.

Fantastic looking watch January 22, 2019
Reviewer: David Wykes from South Windsor, NSW Australia  
Really exceeded my expectations. I thought the dial color may have been too bright a yellow but turns out to be a creamy light yellow. Beautiful mimimist style but absolutely amazing. Have had a number of complementary comments already. I ordered in advance a brown leather strap which now will be the reserve. The nato strap it came with forms a stunning combination with the watch

Great piece, beautiful watch with character January 21, 2019
Reviewer: John Gantz from McKinney, TX United States  
I have been collecting over 10 years, about 60 time pieces, After watching a review on UTube, I brought this watch. It is a great piece, at a reasonable price. I had questions, which were professionally answered to my satisfaction , by Marc, the CEO of Long Island Watch. I can see myself being a long term customer of LIW.

You could do more January 16, 2019
Reviewer: Pablo Wolf from Boca del Rio , Veracruz Mexico  
I’ve been promoting the Seagull in Instagram because there is no other dealer (that i know of) where you can buy it from. I think those products should be promoted even more to have more visitors in your site.
