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 black 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.

Reviewer: Larry S from Ridgefield, CT United States  
Have been watching YouTube videos for months now, and finally pulled the trigger and bought a watch. Ordering was easy, delivered as promised, and love my new watch. Will do again. Great experience.

Great service, great product October 9, 2018
Reviewer: Bryan from SC United States  
First, customer advice was nice, quickly responded to my initial question, and was nice enough not to point out the answer to my question is clearly in the products info. My order was filled quickly and arrived in perfect condition.
The watch I purchased was the Seagull 1963 and it is a fantastic watch. Longisland is one of the very few place that offer this chronograph. A lot of watch for the money.

Seagull 1963 September 21, 2018
Reviewer: I.M from TX United States  
I had been looking for a Seagull 1963 for a while, but could not find any. Saw them on along island Watches website at a reduced price, so bought one.
Watch arrived well within the delivery date promised.
I had a problem with the watch (it would stop when the chronograph function was in use) and was losing time. Contacted them and immediately got a response offering me a replacement watch.  
New watch arrived within a couple of days and faulty one was returned (postage free.)
Hopefully I won’t have any other issues with the watch.
I received great service from the staff members.

---- DON'T BUY ----- September 20, 2018
Reviewer: Pablo Godinez from Nogales, AZ United States  
Item stopped working after 18 months regular use. Suspected it from the beginning that this was a knock off, no paperwork, no original packaging.

Customer service is quite good, but lacking honesty nevertheless. Very disappointed. So think twice about buying this item at all.

BTW, some interesting reading here for counterfit Seagull watches:
