Re: Common Shanghai A581 watches
Here are a few more examples of the A581 model. The two on the left are older variants, without a date stamp under the balance wheel, the other three are all marked 1962. I believe that all of them had text on the dial at one point, which may have rubbed off over time.soviet said:Shanghai A581 watches are hot collectable items among vintage Chinese watch collectors. A581 watches have many dial and case variations and this makes them an interesting watch to collect. Some collectors have hundreds A581 watches with different dials,cases,and casebacks. There must be over a million A581 watches made during its production run between 1958-1966.
Common A581 watches are not very hard to find on local markets, but clean examples are very rare.
