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.

Great watch, great service! April 12, 2017
Reviewer: Jan from ROERMOND, Netherlands  
Received the watch within a week. Which is great considering I live in Netherlands. Very nice looking watch! I really like the way it looks "different". The NATO strap looks just perfect with it too. But will also try it with a leather strap.
Looking forward to other Seagull pieces on Longislandwatch! The models in the Basel video seem pretty cool! Also liked the Messerschmitts in the Basel video.
Kind regards

Reviewer: Tom Pinnock from Mount martha, Vic Australia  
The watch itself is immaculate, beautiful piece at a great price. Long Island watches themselves were great, clear, cheap shipping to Australia. The watch was well packaged and their service was excellent. Overall great experience.

As usual great service... December 27, 2016
Reviewer: Stanz from Port Huron, MI United States  
This was my 6th watch purchase from
Island Watch and like the previous 5 purchases this one was painless, with superfast shipping. Watch (Seagull 1963) was delivered exactly as represented.  Within the last 2 months the clasp on a previously purchased watch broke. I contacted Marc at lsland Watch and asked how I could go about purchasing the necessary part. Without even asking Marc shiped me the requiste part and would not accept payment.  Once again outstanding servic that keeps me coming back!
