Zhaozhouqiao watch, bridge it's named after, and a visit

This is a very clean  (likely 90s) Shijiazhuang Watch Factory "grade 3" Zhaouzhouqiao brand watch with an SZN (Nanchang) movement. 

The logo represents Zhaouzhouqiao, a famous bridge (near Shijiazhuang) in China.

It's the earliest known open-spandrel segmental arch bridge made of stone, and was built 595–605 (Sui Dynasty). 

The gallery is photos of the watch, and photos of the bridge and from the bridge, taken during my visit in 2018.

Follow your curiousity. Mine got me here 😀

Pretty cool! I think this is the only other Chinese watch besides the Seagull chronograph.
