Chinese watch Museum and travels to China

AlbertaTime returns to China. Post #12 - 100% watch content:

Postby AlbertaTime » April 29th 2013, 11:10pm

This post is kind of out of chrono order for my China trip, but... ;-) ...

I visited both the Sea-Gull store at the Sea-Gull factory, and the Beijing flagship store in Beijing. I'll write about both later, but I just got back home and among the 60 or so watches I acquired in China this trip, these are the only two new designs, not at all VCM, and I'm really excited about both of them.

First, the Sea-Gull 813.384, running a Sea-Gull ST1812 / 28,800 24 jewel movement. 40mm by 10MM high, stainless case and crown, sapphire crystal, limited edition. Mine is 378 of 2012:

The second is the Beijing model B078201203S, a 200M diver built to commemorate the commissioning of China's first carrier: the Liaoning, a refitted 300m (990ft) ex-Soviet ship purchased from Ukraine. Stainless case, screw-down crown, 43mm w/out crown x 10.9mm thick. Sapphire crystal, luminous hands, numerals and pip, 27 jewel Beijing B1609ZR movement.

I'm liking BWF a lot more every day. I see them pop up on watchrecon from time to time and have to restrain myself.

Thanks, guys.

I'm enjoying both of them, and they're pretty nice souvenirs for me.

I continue to eyeball that Beijing. I like it in blue!

SIXTY watches?! Well, I don't feel like such a watch whore now! Of course, if one goes to China to buy watches, one should buy lots of them!

Look forward to more pics!

Ron, as a former USN carrier pilot, I'm afraid I'm gonna have to have you hand that Beijing over. NOW. You know how it is...'it's just business,' as Michael Corleone used to say. :mrgreen:
