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.

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 ?

Please, not all watches in China from 10 RMB to 1000,000 RMB (eg the BWAF Cloisonne bridge tourbillon) are one and the same. Are Swatches and a Dufour Simplicity identical simply because they come from Switz ?

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

from the website pics, which i assume are accurate depictions of real life, those Sea Gulls look terrible (edit - at least if they're comparing themselves to the marques mentioned). it reminds me of a Chinese automaker getting a hold of a BMW X5 or Porsche Cayenne and producing a shitty copy of it

The more I wear this watch, the more comfortable I think it feels.
