Yes, I had already seen there website. There was nothing to support your belief , "[That] their movements are used in all sorts of high-end watches."
I did find someone site with a person asking if their Kenneth Cole watch used a Sea-Gull movement, but Kenneth Cole is very far from being a high end watch company.
I had heard this as a rumor. Hence my question of whether it was legitimate. I'm sure the really good knock-offs that you'd get in China use the movements.
Do you know how much a Sea-Gull tourb movement costs ? The knock-offs use much cheaper tourbillon movements like the PTS and Liaoning. Incidentally the British Horological Institute used that same movement in their anniversary watch. http://www.bhi.co.uk/bhi-flying-tourbillon
Have a look at these articles -
note the tourbillon clocks, Sea-Gull sapphire dial tourbillon and Beijing Cloisonne bridge tourbillon
Its not a fake unless you consider what BP sells to be fakes. I just did a cursory internet search and used that picture, but if you do the same you will see that that is how the BP FF looks like.
I take it from your conclusion that you note the startling similarity in movement ?
I took dopey's comment to be that: Diving Watch + Tourbillon =
