Seagull 1963 Hand Wind Mechanical Chronograph with Acrylic Crystal #6345A-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 retro acrylic crystal (front) and an exhibition window back. The gold tint creme dial features goldtone numbers and markers and a red star under the 12:00 position. 19 ZUAN on the dial indicates the movement has 19-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 watch comes with a olive green NATO-Style strap.

    If you're in the fence about this watch.. buy it. It looks even better in person. People on here say the NATO strap is junk, but it's really not bad. Even if you still don't like it, the watch is well worth the price. This watch is stunning in every way. You have to see it to believe it. The chronograph works excellently. Trust me, this one is worth every penny.

    Seagull on a sunny day

    Posted by Joseph on May 13th 2020

    Have only had the watch for a few weeks but really enjoy it. I heard about this watch on YouTube after I first got into watches. Basically this is a “cheaper” watch that gets a lot of respect from watch people - not that that should matter. Very cool watch. Hand wind, display case back, communist star. Pretty much has it all for a little over $300. I have a smaller wrist so the 38mm size works perfectly. Comes on olive green nato strap. Not the most comfortable nato I’ve had.
