May 1 is International Workers’ Day and is celebrated as a holiday in many countries, including China. When mass production of watches began in Tianjin, the date (5.1 or WuYi) was chosen to be the brand name.

I waited a long time before getting a WuYi, but finally I decided on this one after careful study of the helpful pages at Joel Chan’s Micmicmor Vintage Watch.



Although the print on the textured dial isn’t as crisp as it used to be, it’s remarkable that there’s any at all after approximately half a century.



The model number 62-A was the second generation of WuYi watches, following the 58-001 and preceding the ST-2 and ST-2A designations. 62-A was the first model to be manufactured with stainless steel case. Plated cases were available too.



The movement was based on a Swiss design, and closely resembles the FHF 25/28 series. It is likely that it was manufactured using machinery purchased from Fabrique d’Horlogerie de Fontainemelon.
