Dragon Limited Tourbillon

Limited to 99 Pieces Worldwide, Hurry - Only 1 Left!
To usher in the Year of the Dragon in 2024, we have developed a lacquer tourbillon wristwatch incorporating the Chinese intangible cultural heritage craft of lacquerware with exquisite mechanical precision, creating a culturally rich collectors' and showpiece high-end wristwatch.

The design of this double-sided watch dial sees the tourbillon side take on a rhinoceros leather lacquer texture to signify the scales of the dragon's body, swirling with flowing clouds and water as if there is a coiled dragon lying within the dial, poised to strike.

The dragon head "conceals" itself on the reverse side, alluding to the Chinese concept of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," and is inspired in design from the dragon patterns on Tang dynasty imperial robes, robust and majestic.

A PROUD AVIATION HERITAGE

Nestled on the shores of the Bohai Sea, the Sea-Gull Watch Factory in Tianjin has a long tradition of producing superior pilot chronographs exclusively for the People's Liberation Army Air Force. Tasked with navigating China's vast skies, Air Force pilots depend on chronographs with robust movements and pinpoint accuracy even under extreme conditions.

Since 1961, Sea-Gull has tirelessly perfected the art and science of aviation timekeeping. The factory developed China's first Air Force wristwatch - the now iconic 1963 Pilot Chronograph. Hailed for its durability, reliability and high precision, subsequent Sea-Gull pilot watches have been standard issue equipment for PLAAF elite squadrons to this day.

Continuing a 60-year partnership with the Air Force through war and peace, Sea-Gull's state-of-the-art aviator watches incorporate the latest innovations to serve new generations defending China's frontiers. Upholding uncompromising performance as a point of pride, Sea-Gull's aviation heritage engraved on every component continues powering pilots to conquer new heights.

Seagull 1963

FEATURED PRESS

Quality timepieces don't have to cost a fortune. Seagull traces its roots to 1958, when the company was founded and it has been cranking out mechanical timepieces ever since.
That all changed when the Tianjin Seagull landed a cult hit with the ST19, a remake of the historical Venus 175 chronograph movement.
The quality of the movements has been amazingly stable. The Chinese have been making mechanical movements for a very long time. Seagull is the strongest and the best quality.
Seagull movements have a proven history, Swiss roots and allow for cool, intriguing watches for less than their Swiss and often Japanese counterparts.
