The Seagull 1963 is a reissue of a watch that was used by the Chinese Air Force pilots. This chronograph is very much vintage looking and comes in a 38mm diameter case, making it very comfortable to wear, it is however 14.5mm thick, so it wears bigger than what the diameter suggests. The lug width is 18mm, making it easy for you to find other NATO straps.

- Diameter: 38.00 mm
- Thickness: 14.50 mm
- Lug width: 18.00 mm
- Caliber: Seagull ST19
Protected by an acrylic crystal, the dial looks very elegant and is well complemented by the blue hands, the contrast played by the markers makes it very legible. Water resistance is pretty limited, so it will only be able to handle splashes and a bit of rain. The 1963 is powered by the ST19 calibre, a manual wind column-wheel chronograph movement with 40h power reserve that is based on the Venus calibre 175. The see-through caseback lets you admire the mechanical beauty of the movement. For a price in the range of $275, it offers amazing value for money. At such a good price, you will have no issue selling it back at a value close to what you paid for it.
