Seagull 1963 Chronograph 40mm Sapphire with crystal back and Swan Neck fine adjustment!

Delivery with original, green textile nato band and additional textile nato band in black.

We also include an additional leather strap or Milanaise strap as accessory (selection above - see picture gallery for pictures) I recommend a high-quality leather strap from RIOS1931 - handmade in Augsburg, Bavaria.

 My 2 personal favorite straps with this model: the RIOS1931 INZELL and Louisiana Crocodile Calf straps in brightbrown - cognac.

This watch is a detailed reissue of the famous Seagull Chinese Air Force watch "1963" - in a polished stainless steel case with 40 mm diameter, 13 mm height and 20 mm lug width - the original from 1963 had a smaller diameter of 38 mm.

We now have this 1963 model in 38, 40 and 42mm diameters so you can find your perfect size!

Here is our video with the size comparision of the 38mm, 40mm and 42mm Seagull 1963´s: https://youtu.be/En0lvA9gCRU

This watch has a mechanical column-wheel chronograph caliber Seagull No. ST19 with manual winding, approx. 45 hours of power reserve, 21,600 vibrations per hour, shock protection and 21 jewels.

New: with swan neck fine adjustment!

Seagull in Tianjin bought the Venus production facilities from Switzerland in the 1960s and this special caliber is therefore identical or the successor to the legendary Venus 150 column-wheel caliber! (comparable to the Poljot 3017 column wheel caliber)

The golden metal dial with Chinese characters has gold-colored numerals and indexes - with blue hands. The "red star" at position "12" rounds off the classic design.


With the upper pusher you can start & stop the 30 minute counter of the stop function and with the lower pusher you can reset the stopper to "0".

You can wind the watch up to the end - it is not possible to accidentally overwind the watch.

These watches go through extensive ISO9001 certified quality control at the manufacturer and are then carefully checked by us again upon receipt here in Munich and adjusted if necessary - we also test each watch carefully again before shipping.

Of course, you receive a 2-year guarantee and we also offer a low cost repair service with original spare parts for the watches purchased from us.

These watches are also maintenance-free and do not require service every few years.


About 12 years ago, a customer traveling from China visited me in my shop in Munich and I happened to see this watch on his wrist (at that time the 38mm version No. 7001) - since I was immediately impressed by this watch, I have it now imported directly from China, which is not easy due to the formalities and above all the rarity (not mass-produced) of this model.

In 1961, the Tianjin Watch Factory was already known and famous in China for producing the first Chinese wristwatch. This watch manufacturer was then commissioned to produce the first Chinese aviator chronograph for the Air Force of the People's Liberation Army. By October 1962, the factory had produced three batches of this pilot's watch.

At the end of 1962, 38 experts from various fields (Chinese industry minister, flight commanders, military personnel ...) came together to test the watch. After that, the Tianjin Watch Factory was officially commissioned to produce the watch. In 1963, this watch manufacturer was already producing and delivering 1,400 pilot's watches to the Chinese Air Force. This Seagull 1963 Luftwaffe watch offered here is now an official remake of the historic 1963 model
