I own for 6 years now a Sea Gull turbillion watch which works flawlessly. I bought it in Hong Kong and it was displayed along with other famous brands such as Patek Philippe, Breguet, Vacheron Constantin, Rolex etc. It is the only Chinese made watch that has been exposed in the world famous watch fair in Basel Switzerland and didn't go unnoticed. They manufacture few highly complicated watches such as perpetual minute repeater, double turbillion, gyroscopic (revolving turbillion) etc. Yes its made in China and yes its not yet a Patek Philippe, but yes it still costs a SMALL fraction of competitors prices and YES its as reliable as mechanical watches come. What might be a problem is when service will be required, especially for a turbillion watch,. In this case, if provided might cost more than he watch! Saying this, buying a Sea Gull watch you still buy more than what you are paying for, which means MORE VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY. If you think that this watch is just another Chinese made chipo, then with the similar money go buy yourself a mechanical Swatch or a something digital, but that won't give you the taste of owning a really good watch.
