A Brief History
This Seagull 1963 40mm or sometimes referred to as the Project d304 is an affordable and authentic Chinese aviation watch with vintage styling. The chronograph watch was made for the Chinese Airforce and the People’s liberation Army. It has a polished stainless steel case of 40mm and a cream dial. All our Seagull 1963 chronograph watches use an original handwinding Seagull ST1901 movement. The column wheel chronograph caliber ST19 is made by the Tianjin Watch Factory and is based on the Swiss Venus 175 movement from 1950! All the Seagull chronograph movements we use have 21 jewels and have a power-reserve of 42 hours.
