China's own watch brand Sea-Gull prospers in decades (6)


08:10, April 06, 2012

A worker installs a watch at a workshop of Sea-Gull Watch Group in Tianjin, north China, March 31, 2012. Founded in 1955, Sea-Gull Watch Group was born out of the idea that, after having spent decades repairing movements, the Chinese company could very well produce them. Sea-Gull launched the first Chinese watch, the first Chinese ladies' watch, the first ladies' chronograph, and the first Chinese watch for export. In a word, Sea-Gull is very Chinese, right up to the ends of its watch straps. Now, Sea-Gull, known for its expertise in the manufacture of tourbillons and chronograph movements, is the world's largest manufacturer of mechanical watch movements, producing 20 percent of total global production by volume and mainly equipping foreign brand watches.
