    Classic Sea-Gull D819.612 hand-winding wrist watch thin design - thickness?

    Dear All, this is my second thread here. I've been discussing my quest for affordable thin automatics (https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/impo...c-2105578.html), but then realised that I can give up the automatic bit for thinness - in fact a Montblanc that I very much like is based on the Peseux 7001 and not automatic. However, $500+ is above my paygrade. I saw the following watch: Classic Sea-Gull D819.612 hand-winding wrist watch thin design (Classic Sea-Gull D819.612 hand-winding wrist watch thin design) which is based on an ST17 without the rotor. I was wondering if anyone has it. The site says "Thickness: less than 9mm" and while I don't expect a 5 or 6mm, there's a difference between say 7 and 9mm.

    Anyone has this? Anyone has seen it in the flesh? Can anyone provide a precise measurement of the thickness?

    There's also a smaller dial (34.5mm) version: Small Rodina hand-winding mechanical wrist watch Sea-Gull ST17 which is rated at 7.5mm thin. I like it It really bothers me than they didn't remove the "Automatic"wording... It is also an ST17 with no rotor, but I am not sure this would translate into 7.5mm thickness for the one above... Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks! g.

    Mine is on the way to Canada from China. I can measure it once it arrive.

    From the T-mall Official Sea-gull store, the page says 8mm.

    I believe it's 8.5mm. It's bit cheaper if you buy it from Taobao.

    It is being shipped by DHL and I got dinged by tax and duty! It should arrive tomorrow! Will definitely take some shots.

    Did this ever get a final word from those who ordered it back in July? Just curious as I like this watch too. Thanks
