Guangzhou Watch Factory was affected dramatically by the opening of China to imports in 1983 because of Guangzhou’s proximity to Hong Kong, a major supplier of cheap quartz watches. It was able to survive and eventually thrive with production of low-cost automatic movements like the one found in this somewhat scratched-up Guangzhou brand watch.



The date can be adjusted by moving the hands back and forth between 8:37 PM and 12.



I’ve never seen the logo on the crown before.



The automatic SG6ZS is based on the SG5, a manual women’s watch movement.





The bracelet is signed with the Dixmont logo, but it might not be original to the watch.



Yangcheng is another name for the city of Guangzhou and was a Guangzhou Watch Factory brand for many years. The brand name doesn’t appear anywhere on this watch, but its logo can be found a few times.



The quick-set date and day (in English and Chinese) are adjusted by turning the crown in the middle of its three positions.





Inside is an unsigned Miyota-style movement. It can be hand wound, but there’s no hacking. Could it be a version of the DG28?





Its bracelet, which also may not be original, is signed with the logo for Mingzhu, yet another Guangzhou Watch Factory brand.
