Brief introduction to 51 watch

  • Sea-Gull researched and produced the 1st watch in 1955. It is claimed that 51 is the 1st China-made wristwatch for sale to the general public.
  • Why is it called 51? It was named after May 1st International Labor Day.
  • 51 was short-lived, in the market for only several years. In mid 1960s it stopped production, replaced by Dong Feng (East Wind brand, the predecessor of Sea-Gull).
