(Yes, I travel with this watch.)

The strap is vintage Chinese, too...

Very cool watch design and great pairing with the strap! 🤙

·

Even though completely illegible to me, I must say it's really cool!

·

I like this one a lot. Guessing these are rare, even on the Asian market?

·

They turn up occasionally on taobao or 997788, and I recall the prices weren't ridiculous. Yet. Rarer, yes, but not unobtanium. I have friends at Watchuseek that have them, too.

Wow this is very interesting. Very cool! I live in Hong Kong and we have a mountain and district called Maanshan but I know it is probably referring to another Maanshan on Mainland China...
