For centuries a tourbillon watch has been considered one of the most complicated and hence exclusive timepieces.
Only the world s best watch makers are able to make their own tourbillon movements and as requirements of both the master watchmakers and the components used are very high the annual output of tourbillon watches remain very limited.
A watch with tourbillon remains a manifestation of superior watch making craftsmanship and is a luxury available only to a selected audience.
SEA-GULL has developed its own tourbillion in-house in the tradition started by the French watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet, who invented the tourbillon watch in 1795.
SEA-GULL tourbillion watches are made by its best master watchmakers and available in various designs that all reveal a deep respect for the tradition of fine watch making.
The tourbillion function consists of carriage, which makes the escapement and balance wheel turn 360 degrees every minute.
By doing so, the tourbillon is able to even-out the physical forces, which impact the accuracy of the watch, mainly when placed in vertical position.
SEA-GULL s tourbillion is located at the 6 o clock position and functions also as the second hand indicator.
On all SEA-GULL tourbillon watches the fascinating tourbillion function is clearly visible through the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal on both front and back.
After more than 50 years of watch making history, the master watch makers at SEA-GULL have succeeded in developing a series of different tourbillon watches with various functions, such as power reserve indicator, retrograde date and weekday, automatic winding, etc.
SEA-GULL tourbillion watches are available in either steel or 18K rose gold, with superior quality alligator straps.
Truly classical timepieces for collectors and connoisseurs who appreciate the art of fine watch making.
SEA-GULL tourbillon watches are made in small series and are engraved with unique serial numbers.
Each watch is supplied in an exclusive box, providing due respect for each of these fine timepieces.

About Seagull Tianjin.
Seagull Tianjin is one of the biggest watch manufacturers in the world and you probably never heard of it.
Seagull 天津海鸥 was founded in 1955 in Tianjin.
By order of the Chinese Government, a national initiative was started to create a watchmaking industry in the north of China.
Four men in a tiny workshop, equipped with limited tools, created China s first wristwatch.
The Wuxin g 五星 or Five Stars the prototype was created and approved by Mao Zedong for production.
The watch only managed to reach limited production levels.
But the Wuxing would prove to be the humble beginning of what today is probably the largest mechanical watch enterprise in the world.
After the Wuxing Seagull launched the first 100 Chinese watch, the first Chinese ladies watch, the first ladies chronograph, and the first Chinese watch for export.
They created Dual-Axis Tourbillons and beautiful tourbillons for less ridiculous prices.
In a word, Seagull is proudly Chinese made, right up to the ends of its watch straps.

First Mao named the company DongFeng East Wind he gave this name to several companies following his anti-occidental slogan of the east wind blows stronger and harder then the west wind.
in 1974 the name changed to Seagull because this name would be better to sell international, seems fair doesn t it.
Ten years ago already at BaselWorld 2008 the biggest watch fair in the world, two very angry men rushed into the Sea-Gull stand located in Hall 5 and declared, You have violated our patents in your double tourbillon.
When called before the commission for intellectual property, the whole affair fell apart in a few minutes.
This caliber is original, concluded an independent and impartial expert.
When their complaint was dismissed, the accusers took up the counter-example of the Chinese copy watch .
Seagull was able to develop world-class tourbillons for a noticeable price reduction.
It wasn t necessary anymore to have a six – and seven-figure salary to purchase a tourbillon.
