PRESENTING
THE VERNE BI-COMPAX

 

A 40mm Column-wheel
Chronograph

Powered by History

The ST1901 movement was originally made by Swiss watch company Venus in the 1930s- and 40s and was then called Venus Calibre 175. In the early 1960s, Seagull was commissioned to start producing chronographs for the Chinese airforce. As Seagull did not have any chronograph calibre of their own at the time, they bought the blueprints, machinery, and tooling from Venus.

Later they refined the original design and released it commercially as the ST1901.

Case and Crystal

The case has a 40mm width which fits most wrists seamlessly. Just as the Hemingway and Earhart, the Verne Bi-Compax is using with the Raconteur signature wire-lugs. The polished finish gives it a fine and elegant appearance. The top is embellished with a double domed sapphire crystal for excellent scratch resistance and durability. The inside of the crystal is also treated with anti-reflective coating.

Handmade straps from Italy


Raconteur watches
now boasts vegetable-tanned leather straps hand-made in a small coastal town in Italy. In this world-famous area, skilled artisans have been producing high-quality leather goods for ages.

By using traditional tanning methods, with tannins derived from organic materials such as barks, leaves, and branches, the result is a rich coloured leather strap with deep natural tones.

All leather straps are fitted with quick release springbars.

 

Earlier this year I was given the opportunity to have my watches produced exclusively by Tianjin Seagull Watch Group. Given Seagull’s long history as a renowned watchmaker and manufacturer, I could not miss this opportunity.

Not only does Seagull deliver high-quality movements and state of the art facilities, but as they will take responsibility for the manufacture of the full watch, it will significantly improve the production process.

History

Tianjin Seagull Watch Group was founded in 1955 by special order of the newly formed Chinese government. Here, a handful of people, equipped with very limited tools, set out on a mission to create China’s very first wristwatch.

Seagull has since then almost exclusively been producing mechanical watch movements. Through extensive research and development, notably drawing on Swiss expertise, over the past 60 years Seagull has become one of the biggest manufacturers of mechanical watch movements in the world.

Today, they manufacture highly advanced movements, among them a multi-axial orbital tourbillon which speaks highly for their expertise.
