Great review lysanderxiii, thanks again for all of your time and effort. This is a lot of good reading while I'm supposed to be doing something else. :-d

Technical details: The Seagull 1901 is a 23 jewel ...
I thought that Ivo (watchunique) established the ST1901 is a 21 jewel movement, hence the 21 Zuan on the dial of his 1963 re-issue? Hmmmm??

Thanks for the tour Lysander :-!

Another one for the reference section |>
Done!

Cheers,
gigfy

Unfortunately most of the sellers don't really know what the jewel counts are on the Chinese movements in watches they sell. Partly this has to do with the manufacturers playing games with customs tariff regs. Sea Gull used to print 7 jewels on the ST16 when it actually has 22 or more jewels :-d

Every time Lysander opens one up; we get a pleasant surprise :-!
But Ivo even had his watchmaker tear one down and count the jewels. :think:
