Completed by the 24th of March of that year, the Wuxing (Five Stars), was a hand-made, simple watch, that only managed to reach a very limited production run.
A few years later the often referred to as, ‘Seagull,’ the Sea-Gull Watch Group was established in 1958, in the city of Tianjin, which is now a 15 million people metropolis.
