A new automatic caliber with  70-hours power reserve and power reserve indicator !

I sell now since about 5 years alongside the russian watches the historically related models "Seagull 1963" with column-wheel-caliber  and I have collected very good  experiences - now, my suppliers from China produced a very special watch ( again with respect to Russia) for me:

Model RED STAR - wèi rénmín Fuwu 為人民服務   With 2 leather straps included !

Caliber SL6601.

This nice caliber is from the chinese caliber manufactory Liaoning Peacock  from Dangdong. This factory, located in the province of Liaoning  (directly on the border with North Korea) has an excellent reputation and is producing mechanical calibers since 1958 - for example also Tourbillons, chronographs and  skeleton watches - it is one of the most important manufacturers of high quality mechanical calibers of the People's Republic of China.

The Chinese People's Republic has cooperated with the Soviet Union and imported sovjet plants / machines and knowledgte  - they produced there for example the caliber 2408 "Kirovskie" of the 1.st Moscow Watch Factory and also the caliber 2409 "Stolichnie".

As early as 1966 they imported also Swiss machines and produced new versions of calibers.

This new automatic caliber Peacock SL6601 has 31 jewels, 28,800 vibrations / hour;  shock protection, a large date display with quickset , a small second at position "9";  power reserve indicator at position "3" and  impressive  70 hours of power reserve!

The model "Red Star" has a watchcase  made of vintage steel with 44mm diameter (with crown 47mm and Lug to Lug measured 54mm), an overall height of 16mm and a bandwidth of 22mm.    Weight of the watch incl. strap  130 grams.

The domed sapphire crystal covers the classical silver  vintage dia  - this dial is fitted with blued hands and blue  indexes/numbers. The distinctive "Red Star" gives this special watch its name.

This model  has the name   "Red Star wèi rénmín Fuwu 為人民服務"    These words ,  made in 1944 by Mao Zedong "wèi rénmín Fuwu" (Serving the People) are one of the principles of the People's Republic of China.

With sapphire crystal and screwed sapphire crystal back!

Delivery incl. original black leather strap with stainless steel folding clasp and watch case.

Also with additional high quality RIOS1931 Vintage-leather strap "Oxford" in brightbrown, darkbrown or black !
