    Question Affordable Tourbillon watches

    I was messing on the computer today looking up watches and I came across this site that is selling Tourbillon watch at a reasonable price. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this site.

    http://tourbillonwatches.com/

    This is the watch I really like.





    What do you all think about it. Let me know. Thanks

    The 'retail price' quoted on the site is absurd, and the discount price is fairly ordinary.

    The watch in your picture with the 'calibre T1104' actually has a movement made by the Liaoning Watch Factory. I would not be surprised if the complete watch was assembled by Million Smart Enterprises in the Shenzhen facility.

    The 'calibre T1204' is in fact the Sea-Gull ST80 made in Tianjin.

    The reason for offering a choice of 2 movements of identical specification is presumably because 'Tourous' buys their watches complete from various OEM assemblers, and in order to get the case styles they want must settle for the movements provided.

    If you're really keen to buy a Chinese tourbillon for $1000 or less, I recommend that you shop around to compare prices. You may be able to pick up the style of your choice for under $500.

    Not a bad looking regulator style tourbillon from china. You could always go onto ebay and type in tourbillon and you'll find a samson watch company tourbillon sold by samson 328. The SWC has been bought by a few WUS' and has gained some favorable review.

    The Chinese Tourbillon is a good way to go right now for an otherwise super expensive complication.

    I just bought an ebay one with the Robert logo on it, white face and I am quite happy with it so far. Very eye catching and neat. $575 dollars neat not $995 neat. Re-uhren was the seller in ebay. Also see my earlier thread about this and the aeromatic watch.

    You can sometimes also order singles from www.millionsmart.com, this website basically has the same units that I have seen on ebay in a plain face. They want lots of ten at $435 per unit, with any logo you want stenciled on the face.

    I pondered in my earlier posts that the resale of the extra units on ebay should be quite easy if you cannot get them to sell just one. The average ebay tourbillon which is a chinese movement has been about $575-$775 range.

    The seller minorva has had a few center cage units also http://cgi.ebay.com/Centre-36jewels-...QQcmdZViewItem

    If anybody has a review to offer, please feel free to post on the Chinese Mechanical forum. Thanks

    Of particular interest right now are running reports of watches that have been owned and used for at least a year.
