Danyang is an uncommon brand. It is named for the relatively small city in Jiangsu where the watch was manufactured.







Under the balance: 丹阳 (Danyang). The crown is unmarked.

Songshan is another less commonly seen brand. I found one, but it’s not in particularly good condition.



The brand was named for a mountain (range) near Luoyang, the city in Henan where the watch was made. Songshan is home to some significant religious structures, most famously Shaolin temple.



The crown is signed with an M.





Under the balance: M83. The movement is marked Mudan, which is a more common brand from Luoyang. I don’t know whether it is correct, but it makes sense. I have a Mudan too:





Interestingly, there is no M or Mudan to be found anywhere on the crown or movement.



MuDan is a grade 3 watch. Even though it feels slightly lighter than some of my other watches, the quality seems quite good.

It came with a label…



…with English on the reverse.



It is interesting that it says Peony on one side and Tree Peony on the other. From what I understand this particular flower has some cultural significance in China – especially in Luoyang, a centre of its cultivation.
