Scratch and Dent - Seagull 1963 Hand Wind Mechanical Chronograph with Sapphire Crystal #6345G-2901

This is a scratch and dent Seagull chronograph. The movement was repaired. It is like new otherwise.

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.

5 of 5 The Affordable Mechanical Chronograph March 23, 2020
Reviewer: Harry Lime  
This is one of the few high quality mechanical chronographs you can find at a reasonable price.  If you are looking for a watch with a true vintage feel, but without the hassle that comes with buying a vintage watch and needing to get it overhauled; this is a great option.
Very attractive design, nice size. The sapphire glass is a nice touch if you are worried about scratches, but it gives a different look than the domed acrylic. The free NATO strap is ok, but won't win any awards.

5 of 5 SCRATCH AND DENT SEAGULL 1963 March 1, 2020
Reviewer: Gene H. from Saint Michaels, MD United States  
Very pleased with watch. Arrived sooner than I expected, well packaged.  Watch looks “as new” and runs perfectly. I’ve always been lucky buying refurbished items. In my experience, refurbished items often times are less prone to malfunction than items direct from the maker in that the refurbished item has received direct attention.  Best of all, is the reduced price!

I would be very wary buying a repaired watch from any other dealer, but Island Watch does exceptional work and stands behind all their work and products!
