Shanghai Millennium – 35 jewels automatic wrist watch

To commemorate the new Millennium, China’s Shanghai watch company produced several wrist watches under special edition. What readers see from this post is one of the classic model made circa 2000.  Watch bezel and dial markers (in Arabic numbers) are made with K-gold plating.

A great city in the east - Shanghai

Not many of this series were produced. Apparently it was made for senior government  officials and military generals at that time.  The watch case is of very old-fashion look (with short lugs) but the dial is rather uniquely classic and retro.  Dates are marked along the outer ring of the dial and indicated by a small red “half-moon” pointer.  Hour and minute hands are of conventioanl classic design which pay homeage to the old pocket watches. The watch mechanism is automatic winding and can be hand-winding too. Interestingly, the movement is embedded with 35 jewels, rather high quality.

This 38mm diameter wrist watch is beautiful on the wrist, with leather strap.
