    $500 seagull tourbillons in singapore!

    At Citychain in Ion Mall, these are real tourbillons for an unbelievable price of $600-$800 sing$, which is about $500-$700 USD.

    so tempted to buy one...







    anyone knows the info about these? Sure beats buying the swatch 51 IMO.

    Are you sure they're tourbillons? They look a lot like $200 open hearts.

    Go on, for that price, why not? The ones in the top pic definitely look like tourbillons to me. Just don't show your pals in f381!

    I've never seen a seagull tourbillon that has a bridge across the front. I'd be happy to be wrong though (especially at that price)

    looks like a flying wheel to me, are you sure it is a tourbillon?
    I think a seagull tourbillon will cost at least S$1800

    It's the ST25 you're looking at, not a tourbillon but a nicely made open heart design with a rotating assembly on top of the escapement. Nice to look at for sure, but not a real tourbillon.

    Most of these look like Seagull M172s , which can be had for 150-200$ on Ebay.

    I think brad is right they would not block the view of a tourbillon with a bridge.... and those prices are way inflated...sorry to burst the bubble.

    It is that typically shaped bridge that makes the Seagull ST25 one of the easiest open heart movements to recognize IMHO. It's a good movement, but the watches shown there can indeed be found for about 50% cheaper even from the official US dealer. Again, good watches but no tourbillons.
