Last October, I said I’d buy a better Shaolin brand watch if I found one. I didn’t expect to find one this soon.



Shaolin was an uncommon brand produced by Luoyang Watch Factory. It was named for the site of the famous monastery near the city.







M83 is stamped under the balance.

Shaolin is also near Henan’s capital city, Zhengzhou. Its watch factory produced a large number of HuangHe and some other brand watches. I had never heard of Relay brand before I saw this model.



The dial design is similar to my Bawang, except that it advertises 17 jewels instead of 16 and is in English, a language not seen often on the dials of Zhengzhou-made watches. The case, back, and crown appear to be identical.



Like the Bawang, inside is an upgraded SN2 movement. I don’t know the difference between the 16 and 17 jewel versions. The only thing I noticed is that the shock protection is different.
