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.
