    Question Chronograph: Seagull 1963 or Dan Henry 1964?

    I am considering adding a vintage style chronograph to my collection. I am interested in the Seagull 1963 and Dan Henry 1964. Both have similar size specs (38mm case size). I would prefer a D304 Seagull version if I can find one (compared to the standard version). The Dan Henry is also very nice, but I am not a huge fan of quartz movements. Any thoughts or other suggestions?

    Between those two, I'd go with the Sea Gull

    +1. Iím not a huge fan of quartz either. Iíd go for the Seagull. Or, have you considered a Russian OKEAH reissue? Itís 40mm with a handwind Poljot 3133 movement.

    If you’re not a fan of quartz, then there is one 1 choice, the 1963. Eventually, I would pick up a 1963 myself. Excellent looking manual chrono movement if behind an exhibition caseback. However, a Dan Henry is my only quartz watch other than my G-Shock for working out. So, whatever floats your boat.

    Have a seagull. I like it quite a bit, though it never was a daily wear. Itís also my loudest watch. I can hear the ticking relatively easily when itís quiet. It doesnít bother me, in fact I enjoy hearing it at times, but I notice it when I wear it to work.

    I had the Seagull 1963 and I felt the quality was lower than I would prefer. I know Dan Henry is quartz, but I think it's a little better made. Both look great though. #UnpopularOpinion

    In terms of design, Dan Henry gets it. I handled one at the recent WoundUp in San Francisco, and it seemed well-built. I dislike quartz watches, so Iíll never own one. For that reason alone I would choose the Seagull over the Dan Henry. But thatís me. Since you asked, you seem okay with quartz, so go with Dan Henry. They have the best retro look going, including those by manufacturers who produced the originals 50 years ago.

    I would go with the Dan Henry 1964 with its Seiko VK63 meca-quartz movement. For Dan Henry is known for making a well built vintage style watches available at very affordable price.
