Hello, I have found an UG with Chinese Numbers. It seems almost as good as a new one. Any red flags?
Nothing rings any alarm bells - there are quite a few of these cal 42/1-42 watches in stainless and plated cases in circulation. I'm not sure why the Chinese character dials only seem to appear in these 32mm cases as I don't think I've seen any other iteration. Don't overpay.
What's a fair price for that?
It looks cool as all hec with that dial
I may be out of date but I'd be pushed to pay more than $250.
Where are you finding all of these communist themed watches? First the soviet watch, now the Chinese one...
UG in question has a dial with Chinese pictographs, it is lovely and it is not a “ communist” watch. I also think $250 is what I’d pay.
Never said it wasn't a lovely watch. Also, as far as I know, China is still governed by the Communist party of China... hence communist. But I was just being cheeky and messing around. I was born in a former Soviet country (Belarus)... so I was just making a lighthearted remark joking about communism, which does not equate to the watch being bad... although the first one that OP posted is not nearly as nice as this one here.
Sorry ... we’ve had some jingoism here over the past few weeks.
The numerals are the traditional characters that appear on banknotes and receipts and things rather than the everyday way people write out numbers in Chinese. They're "seal script," which is another level of ceremonialness, being the proto-script derived from earlier pictograms, so seal script characters tend to look a little more like hieroglyphics than modern Chinese writing. In a sense, using these kinds of numerals on a clock face is nearly equivalent to using Roman numerals in Western culture. The watch was probably not produced with the Chinese market in mind, though.
Oh definitely not intended here.
