The Tianjin Watch Factory introduced the Sea-Gull brand in 1973, and it has become quite successful -- but Sea Gull was already a Shanghai brand at the time. Here are two Shanghai Sea Gulls from the early 1970s.

First is a HaiOu (pinyin for Seagull) with a 21600 bph SS1 movement.







Second is a more difficult to find export Sea Gull with a Tongji movement.







I think the Shanghai crown is a replacement. I have doubts about the second hand too.



Not long after these were made, the Shanghai Watch Factory stopped using the Sea Gull name.

Excellent post, it's exactly because of collectors like youthree that I've started looking at Chinese watches seriously! Thanks! (n/t)
