1960s Liaoning & Wannianqing

Liaoning brand watches are a great, and often lower-cost, alternative to similar mid-1960s watches from other Chinese factories.



As expected, the caseback and crown are not signed. There are remnants of a sticker on the back.





While other factories based their early movements on Swiss designs, Liaoning, perhaps not surprisingly being in the Northeast, looked toward Russia. The SL1 movement was based on the Kirovskie 2408.



Other than the finish, the design was identical to its Russian counterpart at first, but it didn’t take long for the factory, in true Chinese style, to introduce improvements. In this case, the balance was simplified. The date code is 6611, November 1966.

Further improvements came with the SL1A, found in Wannianqing brand watches.



This style of back appeared in the second half of 1969.





The SL1A, now with shock protection and 17 jewels, has a date code of 6908, August 1969.
