    Martback VCM Collection 11, 12 and 13 - Colorful Shanghai

    The watches are ordinary 7120 caliber with standard casebacks so I did not bother with pictures or descriptions. The dials however are excellent. They are the Chinese-type enamle dials which brings a very deep color and good resistance to aging. At the moment, the red and yellow fire dial is my favourite but that might very well change. I would also like a few blue and green variants.

    I really like your colour dial 7120s. I think the red and yellow is my favourite too.

    I'm interested in the casebacks. I noticed that many of the colour dial 7120s have casebacks like mine...



    ...or like AlbertaTime's. You don't need to take pictures, but do any of yours have either of these casebacks?

    I love the enamel dial pieces and I always thought that the enamel dial was a great innovation. Exactly as you say: "very deep color and good resistance to aging".

    Those casebacks are found on later 7120s with batch numbers of 7120-6xx,7xx or later.

    Thanks Martin and Ron. I may be wrong, but it appears that enamel? dial 7120s usually have casebacks in one of two or three small ranges of batch numbers.
