Seagull 1963 Chronograph

By Harry Marks on March 15, 2011

If you’re thinking, “Man, this watch looks like it was developed for China’s People’s Liberation Army Air Force back in the early ’60s,” you’d be correct. 1,400 Chinese Air Force members received one of these back then.

Originally conceived and developed at the Tianjin Watch Factory back in 1961, the watch was then mass produced for consumers with the approval of the PLA.

The Seagull has a 40-hour power reserve and automatic movement and can be purchased with either a steel back or a crystal back.

This watch screams “military chic” with its elegant face and utilitarian wrist strap. The Seagull 1963 Chronograph can be yours for $339.
