About eight years ago I had a customer traveling from China visiting my office and I saw by chance on his wrist this Seagull ( the smaller version Nr. 7001 ) - I was thrilled of this watch  right away,  therefore I import it now  directly from Shanghai, which is not easy due to the formalities and especially the rarity (not mass produced ! ) of this model. Certainly you have also 2 years full warranty on this watch and also repairs or service are no problems because my watchmakers have all necessary parts on stock!
 
Here are additional informations about this watch:
 
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.
The Seagull 1963 Chinese Air Force Watch is an official remake of this watch.
