In 1961 the Tianjin Watch Factory in China had already become famous for the production of the first Chinese watch. Then the factory was commissioned to produce the first Chinese pilots chronograph for the Air Force of the People's Liberation Army. Until October 1962 the factory was producing three charges of the pilot's watch. In late 1962, then came together 38 experts from various fields (Chinese Minister of Industry, Flight Commander, Navy supervisor, etc.) to examine the watch. After the meeting, the Tianjin Watch Factory was officially charged with the production of the watch. In 1963 the factory then manufactured and supplied 1400 aviator watches to the Chinese Air Force.
