The initial story of the Seagull 1963 Chronograph is a historical one: the model was originally conceived in 1961 at the Tianjin Watch Factory. They were commissioned to create a watch for the PLA's Air Force. The final product was such a success that the watch was deemed fit for mass production. Aside from the Chinese sensibilities in design on the face, the timepiece also features a 40 hour power reserve. Currently retailing for $339 USD.
