Another multiple post mainly for the dials. Beifang seems to be a small factory in Harbin. Case and movement is not much to comment on but as you see below, they make excellent dials. Here are three distinctive styles which matches or supercedes the designs from the bigger factories. The first is a modernist style with silver dials and post-type hour markers. The styling is also matched by a steamlined logo. The second one is the textured dial with a blue ring on top, identical to the one in Soviets post below. The third one is another enamel dial where they have added an additional checker-board texture. All watches have the same 21600 caliber but with both ZHQ and ZHE labels. The Beifang watches are well made and have distinctive designs but seem to be a bit overlooked as they are priced well below comparable watches.<br>

I like them all. There seems to be a good number of watches with great dials (colour dials especially) from factories in the northeast, and your Beifangs are excellent examples. |>|>|>|>

ZHE is the factory code for Harbin Watch Factory, but ZHQ is the factory code for HongQi Watch Factory in Xian. The movement could be a replacement -- but I think the grade 1 ZHQ is a better quality movement.
