THE VERNE NAUTILUS

 

A 40mm Automatic Tool-Watch

Seagull Calibre st2130

The Nautilus is home to the Seagull ST2130 movement. This is a high-beat automatic movement. The design is based solely on the ETA 2824-2, and there are very few things that differentiate them. The ST2130 has one more (26) jewel than the ETA, which was added to reduce wear from the self-winding rotor.

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.
