Anybody know what is the 18 jewel movement that Sea-Gull is using in some otheir thin dress watches?

They seem to be getting into 'thin' recently e.g. a couple of the 55th Anniversary models with ST18 in a 38 x 8mm solid gold case, and the forthcoming microrotor in a 6mm case...

...and then there's this one:



Available in gold or steel in his and her sizes (so presume a small diameter movement), no second hand and I would guess it is hand-winding only.

Any ideas? :think:

What would the jewelcount be if you remove the auto winding part from an ST6? A manual ST6, like for example the 6880 is only 4.1mm thick, and would fit smaller cases.

I think you've probably nailed it. The lack of second hand was confusing me. The standard jewel-count of a basic hand-winding ST6 used to be 19, but the last two jewels were on the mainspring barrel and arbor. Perhaps they've deleted one of those jewels.
