Seagull 1963 Pilot - Opinion wanted

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I've been looking at the Seagull re-issue 1963 watch and wanted to know what current owners think of them? I'm fairly new to watches but the look and history of this watch has peaked my interest, so just wanted to know what you guys think.

 

Have you kept them on the original strap, I've heard that they are not that great. How are they to daily wear? Any other thoughts on these watches?

I`ve owned one for a few years now & consider it to be an excellent watch...

The strap is isn`t original, I changed it a few years ago, I can`t remember what it was like but I presume the reason it had to go was because it was made of leather 1069865608_(29).gif.10cad579abed90eed04082baad823ed6.gif  thumbsdown.gif.cade318649f75c7a0839de283f936fc2.gif

Does anyone have a UK or European supplier for SeaGull watches? Or do I just take my chances with an Ebay seller?

Possibly not the cheapest, but has a good reputation.

I've had one for 2 years now. Bought from Poljot.de - excellent service. I have the variant with the sapphire crystal. Lovely watch and excellent value for a column wheel chronograph:
