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

Image

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.)
