New -  Red Star  Column-wheel-chronograph with moon phase - Seagull caliber ST1908 ! With RIOS1931 spare leather strap!

I have been distributing russian mechanical watches since 1992  and since a few years I do also offer special models from China. The Chinese People's Republic has co-operated with the Soviet Union in the production of watches and soviet watch making machines have been imported. The caliber 2408 "Kirovskie" of the 1st Moscow watch factory was also produced in China  as the Caliber 2409 "Stolichnie".  As early as 1966, Swiss machines were also imported to China and new factories opened.
 


The watchcase is stainless steel in the vintage hammer-distressed esign - with 40mm diameter ( with crown 43mm, from lug to lug width  47mm), 15mm height, 75 gram weight and 20mm bandwidth.

Very nice classic, doomed acrylic glass -  screwed and with chinese characters decorated crystal back !

Special black "charcoal-design" dial with very well readable green luminous numbers  and luminous hands - the second hand carries the symbol of the Chinese party - hammer and sickle.

The moonphase and the word "wèi rénmín fúwù 為人民服務" (in the service of the people) are positioned at "6" - the date and the red star at "12".

This watch has the beautiful SEAGULL ST1908 mechanical column wheel chronograph caliber with manual winding, approx. 42 hours power  reserve, 21.600 half-rotations/hour, shock protection and 22 jewels. With date and moon phase display. 30 minutes stop scale at "3" and running seconds at "9".
 
Seagull in Tianjin bought the production facilities of Venus from Switzerland in the 60´ies and this particular caliber is identical / the successor of the legendary Venus 3017 column wheel caliber!

The moon phase and the date can be adjusted very practically quickly via the two pushers on the left side of the watchcase.

Comes with black  high quality leather strap and watchcase.  I do also include a very nice matching, high quality RIOS1931 leather strap "St.Petersburg", handmade of Juchtenleather in black, darkbrown or brightbrown.
