Red Star 3-hand manual wind watch with cream (champagne) dial and mechanical manual winding caliber.

This watch features a replica hand-wound Tongji mechanical movement. It has 17 jewels, 21.600 vibrations/hour and a power reserve of approximately 36 hours and shock protection.

The "Chinese Standard Movement", also known as "Tongji" (Chinese: 统机, "united"), is a mechanical movement developed in the People's Republic of China during the Fourth Five-Year Plan in the 1970s.

It was designed by engineers from several previous Chinese watch factories as part of an industry consolidation initiative by the Ministry of Light Industry. This Tonji movement defines the production of an entire era in Chinese watchmaking history. The triumph of quartz calibers thus ended this era in the 70´ies. 

The cream / champagne colored dial features the red star logo and faceted indices are used as markers.

“1972” is written on the dial, pointing to a time when Chinese watchmaking was at its peak.

Silver hands,a distinctive red second hand and an acrylic crystal complete the vintage design.

20mm band  width, 5ATM tightness

Comes  with brown leather strap and watch box.

In the picture gallery you can see the test devices from the Red Star company - the watches are checked very carefully after production and undergo a detailed final inspection - I was able to see this for myself during my visit to Red Star in Hong Kong and Shenzhen in 2019.
