Seagull was founded in 1955 in the city of Tianjin, the oldest industrial city in China. In 1961, the Tianjin watch factory was given the task of developing an aviation watch for pilots in the Chinese air force. The Air Force gave it a confidential code for the watches as ’Project 304’.

In 1963, Seagull created more than 30 prototypes, and the official version of ‘Project 304’ was produced. In 1974, the company started to export their watches, and they changed the name in English to ‘Seagull’.
