Guide to SeaGull 1963 re-issues

Post by koimaster » June 14th 2022, 1:51pm

If you’re a watch collector, you would know that the SeaGull 1963 is one of the most sought-after vintage watches in the industry. It’s a cult classic that remains important yet affordable to this day. It’s not so surprising given its design that dates back to the mid-century, authentic roots to the military, and, of course, its affordability. Despite it being a popular choice among lovers of true vintage, its price remains reasonable. This is partly due to the watch’s Chinese roots.
This collectible Chinese mechanical watch is a military chronograph that aligns itself with the likes of Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, Vostok Amphibian, as well as the Rolex Submariner, and Omega Speedmaster. Just like the SeaGull 1963 watch, these watches have affiliations to the military. But unlike these brands, not everyone trusts SeaGull due to the stereotypical ideas attached to practically anything made in China. The stigma, however, should be set aside for this watch, given how many people still believe in the timepiece’s appeal and function. A lot of people might reason with the typical “it’s not Swiss” excuse, but this watch alone should be treated differently.

There are errors, and even when written, it did not cover all variants. Still, it's a decent overview.
