My VCMs – Part 8: Shuang Ling
The caseback may be newer...it looks to be in almost more pristine shape than the rest of the watch--but it could have just been polished. There's nothing that suprises me about a Shungling/Double Rhomb crown on a Shuangling watch but a Beijing crown is OK too; I've seen both on lots of these.The caseback is different from the only d/d SZB-1C caseback picture I have seen...It has a Shuangling crown...shouldn’t it have a “B” on it?...the indices don’t all face the same direction. There seems to be something sticking out from underneath the index at 7 and perhaps a couple of the others. Was there some repair done to the dial?.
Unfortunately not. The ridges on the top of the middle part of the indices at 4, 7 and 11 are on the inner side, while the ridges on all of the others are on the outer. It looks like something (dried glue?) comes out from underneath the indices at 1, 4 and 7.As for the indices, is that just the way the light is hitting them?
Thanks, TO_ARCH. The day of the week is in pinyin. The XQ is xing qi (星期), meaning week and the number is the day, 1 being Monday, 2 Tuesday etc. (Someone please correct me if I am wrong). I don't remember seeing any other watch with pinyin day before.I was away a coupe days and miss out I lot! Envy!!!
Why is shown "XQ6", stand for Saturday :think:
I see. Anyway, this is the 1st real watch image of this model ever appeared on the web IIRC. I hope one day you could also add it to your meseum too.Keep in mind that it's saskwatch's find . Me, I just drool over it and reposted the pic so you could see it.
