    Thumbs Up Jingtie 33 jewels automatic

    Beijing Railway(Jingtie) is a gift watch made for the 40th anniversary of Beijing Railway Branch. About 30,000 such watches in various styles and dials were made by Liaoning Watch Factory.
    It is unique that it has a very ancient Chinese logo that even I do not recognize. I was told by an expert of ancient Chinese characters that it is "京铁" in modern Chinese.
    It must be one of the more luxury watches with those diamond decorted hour markers. It has a gold plated brass case that I think should be replaced with a solid gold or S/S one.:-D It has a good 33 jewels standard automatic date movement. But sometimes it only has about 20+ jewels.

    Re: Jingtie 24 jewels lady automatic

    Automatic lady watch is much less common, and this 24 jewels Jingtie is unique. Usually they have 23 jewels seagull ST6D movement. Somehow this one added a jewel somewhere.

    Yes it is nice, I have one exactly the same but I notice on the winder there is the
    image of a peacock, Kongque?
    I am new to collecting and I don't know if it is Kongque or maybe just the winder
    has been replaced in the past, can you tell me please?

    As far as I know, Jingtie automatics were manufactured by Liaoning Watch Factory. Kongque was its main brand, and it would make sense that the crown be marked with a peacock. I can't say with absolute certainty, however, that it is original to the watch. Maybe someone who has one could answer?
