Sea-gull 55th Anniversary Edition


This is how a seagull looks like.... there is a Chinese folks song dedicated to this fine creature.....  

海鸥 飞在蓝蓝海上
挥着翅膀 看着前方
不会 迷失方向
飞的越高 看的越远

SEA-GULL is the in-house brand of Tianjin Sea Gull Watch Manufacturing Group, China’s top watch maker. The company was established in 1955 and has developed and prospered, much in line with China’s overall progress and development. Today, Sea-Gull produces high-quality mechanical movements include chronograph, automatic and tourbillon. 

In celebration of more than half a century of timepiece craftsmanship, Sea-Gull introduces the 55th Anniversary Special Edition watch, featuring a “55” engraved in place of the “11” on the numbered dial. The ingenious design bears witness to the unwavering marriage between meticulous production and state-of the-art technology as envisioned by the Sea-Gull's 55 years of watch-making excellency and still counting… This watch (model no: D219.360) was launched in October 2010. The retail price for the watch is about 600 Yuan. 

I bought this watch from a dear friend. He got it from the Sea-Gull bountique during his tour to China in 2011. According to him that was the only remain piece in the shop. My friend also told me this is a limited edition watch. I do have doubt on this, since there isn't any serial number on the watch.

This watch measured 41mm without the crown and 46mm from lug to lug. I like the rose gold and stainless steel combination which gives it a classical look. Considering this as an entry level Sea-Gull, the dial finishing is beautiful and elegant. 

This watch is water-resist to 50m. It has a mineral crystal top and a see through back case. You can see the 23 jewels automatic ST6D3K (ST6D103K) movement which is based on ST6 movement of 1980's era.   
The ST6D3K is decorated with engraving and blue screws.  The back case is signed 55th Anniversary.
