While its classic product ‘Seagull Shampoo’ is fading out of the public eye, another ‘Seagull’ may be put into the embrace of Shanghai Jahwa (39.05, 0.04, 0.10%) (600315). In response to the rumor that the Group will acquire Tianjin Seagull Watch Group (formerly Tianjin Watch Factory), the reporter of ‘Golden Securities’ was informed that several executives of Shanghai Jahwa have defaulted on this matter on different occasions and disclosed that ‘I hope Tianjin Seagull will be listed in a listed company . ‘There are signs that good things are approaching.
Chasing the ‘Seagull’ for three years
As early as last year when Ping An entered the Shanghai Jahwa Group, the market rumored that “Jahwa Group will take a 20% stake in Tianjin Seagull”. However, there was no response from Jahwa at that time.
进入 Entering in 2012, the reporter of ‘Golden Securities’ noticed that many senior executives of Shanghai Jahwa acquiesced in this matter on different occasions.
In March, a researcher familiar with the reporter rushed to the company to investigate. According to his disclosure, the executives admitted at the time that ‘the group has been tracking the seagull project for 3 years. At present, the company’s principle is to develop projects that are not related to cosmetics in the group. There is no decision on whether to put it into a listed company.
At the shareholders meeting of Shanghai Jahwa at the end of May, Chairman Ge Wenyao said, ‘I have been in contact with the Seagull Watch Factory since 2009. The company has also participated in bidding for one year. Now the company and major shareholders have returned to the equity participation project. There are some differences and the company will meet again for discussion. ‘
记者 ‘Golden Securities’ reporter was informed that at a recent institutional exchange meeting in June, Shanghai Jahwa executives further revealed: ‘At present, the Tianjin Watch Factory is going through the process, hoping to be listed in listed companies.’
人士 Yesterday, a person from Shanghai Jahwa’s Public Relations Department admitted to the reporter, ‘The company is indeed negotiating the acquisition of Tianjin Seagull Watch, but there is no latest progress.’
With ‘core’ unable to spread wings
In the domestic watch market, ‘Tianjin Seagull’ can be regarded as a famous brand. As early as the 1950s, the Seagull Group developed China’s first mechanical watch, and then continuously set a number of ‘firsts’ in the history of Chinese watchmaking: China’s first watch ‘Five Star’ brand, China’s first export watch ‘Seagull Watch’ and the first female watch that meets international standards.
It is understood that the current Seagull mechanical watch movement accounts for about 20% of the world’s total production, and products with independent intellectual property rights account for 85%. The three core technologies of ‘Tourbillon, Three Questions, Perpetual Calendar’, which were only mastered by watchmaking powers such as Switzerland, were also conquered one by one by seagulls.
But the disadvantages of seagulls are also obvious. According to insiders of the company, ‘General Ge admits that Seagull now produces watches with very advanced technology that can compete with international standards, but currently these watches do not have a market. It lacks fashionable design and lacks smooth sales channels, all of which are state-owned enterprises. A set of practices. He believes that if we buy this watch factory, with our understanding and grasp of state-owned enterprises, we will have an advantage over others to let them take advantage of state-owned brands and make a market. ‘
At the exchange meeting in June, an executive of the company also said, ‘Seagull watches have no marketing department and no channels, and the capital turnover is once a year and a half. The price of a single watch is not high, the movement business is a loss, and 44% is negative gross profit. , 22% is 5% gross profit. The company accounts for the majority of sales revenue of the double tourbillon, only 2-3 companies in the country do. ‘He did not say that’ a good watch should improve the technical content and strengthen the design and brand operation. ‘
The researchers at the scene even described Shanghai Jahwa’s plan for seagulls to ‘Golden Securities’. ‘The seagulls currently sell 500 million yuan, with a profit of 20-30 million yuan and an estimated value of 800 million yuan. The group plans to sell 20,000 yuan in five years. Only table, the ex-factory price has increased from 30,000 to 1.2 billion, and the gross profit margin has reached 87%. Even with 80% gross profit, there is also a 1.92 billion gross profit. Seagull has to achieve two goals, one is to achieve international first-line brands; The core must also have pricing power. ‘
More than that, Jahwa also intends, ‘After the acquisition of Seagull, we can expand the industrial chain and let it spin off and go public.’
5-10 times the potential benefits
Creating a high-end fashion industry group has always been Ge Wenyao’s dream. It is precisely because of Ping An’s ‘recognition of Jahwa’s diversified fashion industry development strategy’ commitment, so that Jahwa Group in the battle for equity, Tianping moved to Ping An. And since the peace came into power, this dream has been inserted into the wings of funds.
On April 20, Ge Wenyao told the reporter of ‘Golden Securities’ that ‘Ping An has sufficient funds and will fully support Jahwa’s investment and business development. As for the requirements for assessment, the first is compliance. Every year To provide unreserved accounting and auditing reports, the second is to require performance growth, and the 5-year investor return is at least 1-2 times. ‘
In October 1707, British Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell led a fleet of several ships. Due to errors in longitude calculations, the fleet eventually crashed in the Isles of Scilly in southwest England. The admiral And nearly 2,000 crew members were killed.
At that time, dominating the ocean was one of the core issues of the British Empire’s politics and economy. This tragedy prompted the government to mobilize the entire scientific community to overcome the same problem: how to calculate longitude accurately at sea. To this end, the British Parliament passed the Longitude Act in 1714, offering a reward of 20,000 pounds (equivalent to millions of dollars today!), In order to reward scientists for inventing a method that can make the error accurate to about half a degree (Ie about 30 km) at sea.
The greatest scientists are involved in this challenge. John Harrison’s research seems to be the simplest and has many advantages: the time difference between the starting point and the ship’s position is measured by a clock to determine the longitude. The earth rotates about 24 hours a week. Therefore, an hour is equivalent to 15 degrees of rotation of the earth, or a longitude difference of 15 degrees. Then, by using a sextant to determine the exact time of the ship’s location, and using a clock to indicate the exact time of the reference meridian (the starting point), the time difference between the two places can be calculated, and the longitude of the ship can be known. The next challenge is how to make timepieces that are accurate enough to adapt to changing sea travel.
John Harrison worked hard to finally solve this problem. Born on March 24, 1693, John Harrison is a self-taught watchmaker who was born as a carpenter and devoted his life to developing precision timepieces. He used the spiral hairspring invented by Christian Huygens and Robert Hooke to make a new mechanical device, while using brass and steel alloys to effectively control metal tension.
In 1773, John Harrison ruled out the hard-to-invent H-4 navigation watch and finally gained recognition for its outstanding performance. He also received part of the reward promised by the Longitude Act. Due to the fierce competition surrounding this challenge and the ambiguity of the award conditions, bonuses have never been paid in full.
The history of GP Girard Perregaux is the history of perseverance and the pursuit of precise timing technology. Today, the watch factory has created a new exclusive model of the ww.tc (world wide time control) € time series, paying tribute to this outstanding master watchmaker of the 18th century.
On the dial of this outstanding watch is an Atlantic chart depicting the navigation of William Harrison, son of John Harrison, from Portsmouth, England, to Port-Royal, Jamaica. The sailing journey lasted from November 1761 to March 1762. The purpose was to test the reliability of the H-4 navigator. This longevity navigator is much smaller than the previous prototypes. For example, the H-1 navigation instrument weighs 32.5 kg.
The dial of the ww.tc John Harrison watch is the result of condensed exquisite enamel painting process, carefully crafted by GP Girard-Perregaux enamel workshop. Coast contours were first carved on an unprocessed platinum face plate. Exquisite eight-direction wind direction map, the size does not exceed 3 mm, and is carved by hand by a sculptor. The craftsman then filled the hollowed out area with a green or blue enamel liquid paint with a brush. After baking the enamel pigment in a furnace with a temperature of up to 800 degrees Celsius for a certain period of time, a translucent glass-like effect is obtained. After it has cooled, place it in water and grind off the excess enamel with hard stone sandpaper. Then, the dial is manually polished with a diamond file, and then subjected to a final firing, a process called ‘dorure’, which makes the enamel shine brightly. William Harrison’s sailing route from Europe to the Americas is carefully traced with silver powder.
To cope with the dial, the names of ‘Portsmouth’ and ‘Royal Port’ are displayed in royal blue on the city display ring. The city display ring with the carved GP logo is located at 9 o’clock and can be activated by the platinum crown. In addition to displaying the local time, this watch also displays the time around the world simultaneously with a blue / white two-tone time display ring and a rhodium-plated leaf minute hand.
The delicately carved hands glide across the enamel-painted dial, solemn and elegant. The white gold case is alternately polished and matte, with exquisite workmanship and well-proportioned proportions. Through the transparent chassis, you can enjoy the precise operation of GP Girard Perregaux and the outstanding automatic GP 033G0 movement. The movement is equipped with a clever adjustment mechanism that drives a two-color time display ring to display the time in 24 time zones. Pay the highest tribute to this great journey of watches and clocks, and specifically sculpt the important date of sailing with the H-4 navigation instrument on the rose gold pendulum. The ww.tc John Harrison watch is limited to 50 pieces worldwide, each of which is individually engraved.

We had the honor to interview Daniel during the Baselworld 2014. Mr. Daniel Alioth is an innovative manager who is good at responding quickly to changing dynamic markets, analyzing key business drivers and formulating development strategies to increase corporate profits. Daniel. Mr. Elios joined Ball Watch Company SA in 2006 as an operations and marketing manager responsible for the company’s operations and sales. He started to serve as the chief operating officer of Boer table in 2011 and joined the board of directors of Boer table in 2012 as a director. Daniel. Mr. Elios has eight languages and has worked in the banking and media industries. He has accumulated extensive financial and sales experience.
Watch House: As you can see from your resume, you joined Boer Watch Company in 2006 and have been responsible for the operation and sales. So, as far as you are concerned, today’s watch sales market is compared with 7-8 years ago. Are there any similarities?
Daniel. Elios: We have been improving our timepieces. This is very different from other brands. Some brands may be slightly changed, but as for us, there will be subversive new products launched every year? For example, we have obvious innovations in appearance and function.
Watch House: In this era, what do you think is the key to the success of watch brands?
Daniel. Elios: We think there are three important points. The first is the design aspect, which must not stop at the moment. The second aspect is the function. We also have continuous improvements and improvements. Another important point is that we have a clear price positioning in the market.
From the point of view of the Bol brand itself, there are two very important designs. The first is a Margary designer. He is currently helping us design the appearance of the Bol BMW watch. There will also be new styles for everyone this year. meet. The other is our technical director, who is constantly developing new watch technology every year. So the brand owns these two geniuses now, which is destined that our Bol watches will definitely make new progress every year.
Watch House: As far as we know, before the BMW BMW watch was just placed a BMW logo on the disk, will there be more forms of cooperation in future products, or cooperation with other brands?
Daniel. Elios: We will not cooperate with other auto brands at the moment. The reason why we choose BMW is because its continuously innovative brand concept is similar to ours. As for the development of new products, this year we will cooperate with BMW’s Together, the M series creates a new watch.
Watch House: What do you think is the biggest selling point of Bohr watches?
Daniel. Elios: In addition to the well-known luminous function, we have been developing other forms of watches. Like this year, we also launched the first annual calendar watch, which is also a sign of the brand’s shift to functional direction. After all, luminous is just the top of the appearance. of. In addition, the price of watches this year is positioned as mid-range, so the price / performance ratio is also very high.
Watch House: Are you satisfied with the performance of Bol Watch in the Chinese market last year, how do you evaluate the Chinese watch market, how is it significantly different from other local markets?
Daniel. Elios: Because of the brands we have identified in the top ten observatories in Switzerland, this is the result of the brand’s efforts so far last year. Such affirmation is also very important for Ball. Since entering the Chinese market, with the help of the majority of media, the Ball brand has gradually gained greater and greater popularity in China, which has also increased the sales of watches. China is currently the largest market for brands in Asia, but as a global perspective, our market size in the Americas and other countries is also very large. Because Ball is an American brand, but it is made in Switzerland, it will be better in terms of influence and other aspects in the United States. The Chinese market is currently a little short of what we expected, so we will not take it lightly.
Home of Watches: At present, we rarely see that Bol has a large market activity in China, or is it a spokesperson for China?
Daniel. Elios: Because in the past few years we have also held some small press conferences in China, maybe just because the scale is relatively small, not everyone has noticed that this year we will also hold events in China, compared to previous scale conference Bigger, but time is yet to be determined. Everyone knows that we are all celebrities who are sports-oriented and challenge extremes. Of course, if we can find the right candidate in China, we are also very happy to cooperate with him.
Watch House: Will Boer watch have new actions in the new year and what surprises will consumers bring?
Daniel. Elios: We will have a big surprise this year, which is antimagnetic. Some new anti-magnetic watches will meet you this year. Because we have just obtained a patent on anti-magnetic technology, so far this is still a secret. At present, our technical director and design director have teamed up to design a new antimagnetic watch. The current market pricing is about 30,000 yuan....
