I was very impressed with the pair of Taihangs I bought a few months ago, so I got another.







This one is equally impressive. I don’t know what the letters under the balance, BH, mean but ZJS, Shijiazhuang City Watch Factory’s code, appears there too.



This second watch doesn’t have much in common with the first other than that I bought it from the same seller.



I had never heard of Yalong watches when I first saw this one. Before I bought it I looked for any references to the brand. All I could find was that Yalong was a trademark of Yangzhou Watch Factory. It makes sense – the double calendar looks a lot like what I’ve seen on some Qionghua brand watches. The date can be advanced by moving the hands back and forth between 10 PM and midnight. The day can be advanced by moving the hands back and forth between midnight and 2 AM.



The crown is signed with 亚 (ya), and it appears the brand name is 亚龙. I don't know what it means in English. Not surprisingly, there is a simplified tongji movement inside.
