Seagull 1963 Hand Wind Mechanical Chronograph with Sapphire Crystal #6345G-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 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.

    Not delivered

    I get a feedback email but haven't gotten my watch yet. I contacted the company but got no response. The watch delivery status didn't change since 15th January. Current status : Your item has arrived in the country of destination. Poor Service so far.

    This watch is fun to look at front and back. The movement is very attractive and runs quite accurately. Marc stands behind the watches he sells and deals with problems expeditiously. I will buy from Long Island Watch again.

    Very happy with everything with the purchase and with the product!!!! Like many others- upon opening the box I had mistaken the protective wax on the crown as chipping enamel- but Mark was very quick to reply to my concern and correct me- giving me the instructions on how to remove it! I am so happy with this timepiece and having it in my collection. It is keeping great time, your eyes get lost in both sides of the watch. I ended up pairing mine with a natural colored ostrich leather band and it completely transformed the watch even more. Once again, thank you Mark!!!

    Beautiful Watch and Great Customer Service

    Posted by Anthony Villanueva on Oct 15th 2020

    The watch is beautifully made, especially the movement on the back. The crown is a little stiff when hand-winding in the beginning. However, after a couple days of use the crown winds seamlessly. WARNING: It does tick quite loudly, for those who don't like the ticking sound of watches. Fortunately I LOVE that sound so I have no issue with it. I did have an unfortunate problem with my first order being defective. I contacted customer service, and they immediately responded and sent me a new one. I had no issues with the return and my watch came in perfect. If anyone ever gets a defective watch Long Island Watch will take care of you!
