A short time back on worn&wound we investigated the Seagull 1963 chronograph (in the event that you don’t review or missed that one, tick here and come back, we’ll stand by). The Seagull 1963 is a dedicated portrayal of section wheel chronograph watches made in the 1960’s for the People’s Liberation Army Air Force. The hand wound development contained inside was created in 1961 for this program and depends on the Venus 175. The Tianjin Watch Factory fabricated and conveyed 1400 of these watches to the Chinese Air Force in 1963, thus the re-issue’s name. The watch came in at 38mm with 18mm drags which was maybe verging on huge for the 1960’s however is obviously small(ish) by today’s guidelines. The Seagull brand has now given the individuals who favor a smidgen more wrist presence a 42mm variant of the 1963.
While the size was helped to 42mm, the development was not changed. It is equivalent to in the 38mm adaptation of the watch: a hand-wind, segment wheel chronograph development with 21 gems. Something that has been changed is the dial contributions: there are three alluring dials to browse in the 42mm adaptation of the watch. One is a similar style and design as the 38mm adaptation of the watch. Added to the setup are a decent black dial with differentiating silver sub-dials and a “panda” styled dial of white with black sub-dials. Both of the augmentations are thump outs with the panda maybe having a slight edge over the black.
All of the plans in the 42mm line have a screw down straightforward case back, 22mm hauls and acrylic gems. The stature of the watches times in at 13mm, which should fit under most sleeves genuinely well. On the off chance that the 38mm size had recently put you off of the Seagull 1963 there isn’t anything keeping you down at this point. Each of the three plans (just as a 38mm with a sapphire precious stone) can be bought from seagul1963.com for $469.00 USD.
