Thanks. I always thought that tourbillons are that forbidden fruit only for people with a lot of money to spend. But Sea-Gull keeps reappearing and gathering quite good feedback, hence the question.
Don’t know about sea-gull but i have heard about a Chinese brand call memorigin which makes tourbillion for a affordable price.

Yes! And said to be a quality watch, sold for $3.5k or so.

I'm curious, I posted a pic of my Chinese Tourbillion about 5 posts ago in response to the question, (which I paid $525.00 for). No acknowledgment whatsoever......what's the story ??

I wish panerai does make a tourbillion which looks like that, they only have a hidden tourbillion model as far as I know... and I have search for Memorigin yesterday and their design is actually not bad.

Gorgeous watch.

Anyone have recommendations for a watch winder?

I went through several inexpensive units that lasted 6 months to a year, then I went ahead and purchased a Swiss Made "Swiss Kubik". A bit pricey, but well made, quiet and you can program the rotation direction and number of daily rotations. I ran this almost 24/7 for several years. Here's some pics.

Agreed, they have their own ideas, that piece you posted is one such example. But some are twisted, Star Wars alike Tourbillon is not our cup of tea, sorry!
