My New Income From Uk - Seagull Oyster Perpetual


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'd like to present You my Oyster Perpetual homage, made by Seagull:

I'm very happy that Mr. R. D. Smith (look picture No.4) didn't like his 'China made' watch :). This design is very sophisticated and elegant, and the only thing that may bother someone, is the brand and country. So I was lucky that my last bid was the winning one :). Here it is:

The bracelet style is proper style with branded clasp:

The model on the back is again with G: G433G

, which suggests strange ETA-based movement. Yes, the suggestion was correct:

The ebauche is ETA, signed 2834-1, and with logo engraved on it. But the bridges look like real 'china made' with distinctive decoration.

Because the design is very near to the original, there's not much I can say about it, that was not said before - pure beauty |>

Hope You like it :-)

Regards, Miro.

Alpha sells a few of these... any connection as far as you know?

I think this one was made about 10 to 20 years ago. It was made in Tianjin using a Swiss ETA ebauche assembled and finished locally (hence not a Swiss Movement per se).

Alpha 'Oyster Perpetual' Day/Date style watches are more recent, as far as I know. The Sea-Gull ST16 movement was common in these for a long time but I don't know if that is still true. Such movements might actually be made in one of Sea-Gull subsidiary factories. Hard to be sure. Alpha is based somewhere in the vicinity of Hong Kong and probably source their cases locally.

Also I don't think the Sea-Gull has a screw-down crown as per the Alpha.

So probably no connection. The Oyster case is pretty common in China (and Japan and Switzerland, too)
