Youth in a Flourishing Era, Striving at the Right Moment.

Chinese youth, ever forward-looking, have for a century held a deep-seated love for their homeland and people. They continue to forge ahead, writing magnificent songs of youth. In the last century, this group was known as the 'New Youth.' Great things are accomplished with attention to detail. Genuine craftsmanship leaves no room for shortcuts, and truly classic designs withstand the test of time.

Continuing the legacy of the iconic May 1st large dial, upgraded to a 40mm size to better suit modern wrist dimensions. The radial brushed texture and the traditional copper spray-painted sunburst polishing bring out the metallic luster of the dial. The May 1st commemorative logo at six o'clock inherits the classic design of the May 1st watch. The grained leather strap, crafted by experienced artisans through multiple tanning processes, showcases natural textures. With time and use, the color deepens, revealing enhanced gloss and charm.
