Grade-2 Titanium Case
We experimented with materials such as stainless steel, carbon fibre, and ceramics, but found that titanium made for a perfect match to our mechanical watch. Compared to traditional materials, titanium is light, which adds to wearing comfort. Meanwhile, titanium is one of the hardest metals in the world, making it less likely to be scratched or damaged in daily use.
30% lighter. 40% stronger. 100% premium.
Artificial Sapphire Crystal
Possessing the exact chemical makeup as natural sapphire, the second hardest known element, the crystal is exceptionally resistant to abrasion and scratches and is the material we use on all of our watch faces. Second only in hardness to diamond, the mirror can withstand a lifetime of use and remain looking exceptional.
Structure without Occlusion
To express the beauty of mechanical art, we adopted an innovative and extreme skeleton design integrating the aesthetic feeling of mechanics and high-end materials to the utmost extreme. The operation of the movement can be seen intuitively, which makes the visual effect more exciting. With the incessant movement, time becomes visible. The whole watch is like a precision mechanism worn on the wrist.
A customised SEAGULL automatic movement means it is your drive that powers this watches. Kinetic energy is harnessed from your activities and used to power the mechanical movement. With a power reserve of up to 40 hours, the watch can be left at rest and continue to function.
Available in four colours
Red | Black | Orange | Blue
Designed and engineered as a multi-page book, the packaging that surrounds our watches is as majestic as its contents.
