A Shanghai A-611



The A-611 was the first of Shanghai Watch Factory’s 611 series. It is similar to the A-581, except it has a shockproof balance.







The date code is 6301A, the first batch of January 1963.

Shanghai began production of the SS1 in 1966, and the 1120 was one of the first models featuring the movement. I have two already, but I wanted to get a third, this time with gold coloured hands and indices. I found one in good condition and bought it, but this isn’t it.



Once again a seller pulled a switcheroo with an 1120 I purchased. I don’t know whether it was an honest mistake or a deliberate deception, but as before my only recourse is to enjoy the watch I received. The caseback is early, but not as early as the ones marked SS1a.







The movement has a date code of BD, April 1967.
