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.
