More from Jilin Watch Factory: 1979 watches (incl. military use)


Three watches from the same factory as yesterday' Meihualu. One Hangtian and two Jixing, two with military marking.

  • Hangtian/(航天)/Space Flight
  • Jixing/吉星/Lucky Star. and 
  • the red junyong/军用/military use on two of them.

Some internet sources note that Jilin's 军用-labelled watches were issued to China's PLA soldiers during the 1979 conflict between China and Vietnam. (Jilin also supplied China Rail personnel with pocket watches.)


Love that bezel on the Jixing.😍
