    Seagull 1963 en route + current collection pics

    I've been wanting a chrono to round out my modest collection. I had been lusting after the Junghans Telemeter, but decided that I would be foolish to spend that kind of money right now. Then, while browsing the forums, I found a picture of the Seagull 1963 reissue. I'm not quite sure why, but I fell for it. The design, the color, the PRICE, it fits what I need(read: want) perfectly. I ordered from watchunique for 197 euros, shipped to Texas. I think it came out to about $220. Acrylic with display caseback. I'm looking forward to it!

    This is mine, it's the variant with the sapphire crystal. The colors are beautiful, and the ST19 hand-wound column-wheel chronograph movement is very pretty to look at.

    Lovely collection. The Oris is gorgeous and I'm a big fan of that Sinn. I've also recently received a 1963 reissue and I'm really happy with it. Very good for the price.

    This is one on my hitlist and from the same source too.

    The thing is, I find this price range the hardest to buy for as there are just so many cool watches at around £200, I don't know where to begin.
    I am 99% certain this will be the first to hit the virtual checkout.
    I think a worn brown/tan calf strap would be my strap of choice.

    Don't know why I haven't bought one yet. Nice looking and a great value in my mind. I like acrylic crystals, but I'd also like one of the pandas they have. A lot of cool for a little scratch.

    My 1963 is incomming too! I bought it yesterday from another WUS member, he did wear it 1 week since new and I paid 150 Euros only!
    It is in the mail since this morning and due to arrive here on Monday...It will be the first chronograph in my collection and my second Sea-Gull watch. Can't wait to see it!!!

    I've seen pictures somewhere on here of a lighter brown leather NATO that might look really good with this.

    Thank you! And I'm glad to see others are happy with the 1963. I didn't know much about it before today. I pretty much saw the picture and immediately ordered it.

    First, that's an absolutely boss collection. That Oris is just so damn cool.

    The 1963 is a great choice. Did you go with the 38 or 42?
