Movement: The ST 1901 by Sea-Gull (TY2901) is a very precise and strong running hand-wound mechanical chronograph caliber with 23 jewels. A smooth column wheel and a balance wheel that operates at 3 Hz (21,600 vph). A small second dial at the 9 o’clock position, and a 30 minute counter (accumulator) sub-dial at 3 o’clock. Finally, a sweep second counter mounted centrally along with the timekeeping minute and hour hands.
The Chronograph is controlled by two buttons. One (at 2 o’clock) for starting and stopping the chronograph, one (at 4 o’clock) for resetting the second and minute counters.
In Conclusion, this chronograph is quite a fine mechanical timepiece.
