Case and Crystal

The Earhart is inspired by timepieces and art-deco from the 1930s. Just as the Bi-Compax, it is equipped with the signature Raconteur wire-lugs and embellished with a double domed sapphire crystal. The case comes in either rosé gold or silver colour and has an elegant polished finish.

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.
