Nowadays, outside of China it is also known as ‘the 1963’.
Over the years, as the factory grew in size, many names were used.
In 1974, the year the company started to export their watches, and the name was adjusted to the English name ‘Seagull’.
The association with the seagull stands for flying great distances: a symbol for the global export strategy.
This is the story of the Seagull 1963. In the watch world, history is arguably just as important as the components of the watch itself, and the 1963 lacks nothing in both regards.
The Seagull 1963, or ‘304’ plays an important role in the history of Chinese military watches, and is therefore a must-have for watch collectors worldwide.
