Tianjin 天津 ST5 Sea-Gull 海鸥 II


Model : Sea-Gull 海鸥
Manufacturer : Tianjin Watch Factory (天津手表厂)
Year of Production: 1970s
Case Diameter : 
Weight w/o strap: g 
Movement Model : ST5A (19 jewels) 
Type : Hand Wind 

This is my second Sea-Gull ST5 19J. My first Sea-Gull ST5 with date version is here. The watch is by Tianjin Watch Factory (天津手表厂); the predecessor of the current Tianjin Sea-Gull Watch Factory (天津海鸥手表集团公司).


This watch is around 30 years old and was cost in the circa of RMB120 at that time. You can feel the age of the watch from the dial and the hands especially the faded mark on the second hand. The dial is a flat dial with fine grooves on it.

Having said that, the ST5 movement is however still shining and lovely. ST5 is the only China Made movement with decorative stripes and is a popular item among the watch collectors.
