    Watches with Mandarin/Catonese text on dials

    Are there any watches with only Mandarin/Catonese text on dials?

    Most of the time I see Mandarin/Catonese text with Latin script transliteration. Case in point, 19/21 Zuan and Zhong Guo in Sea gull 1963 watches, or some models of Shanghai watches

    I've had this Vager Hauers traditional 12 Shi-Chen watch ("gold case black dial" version) for a little over one year and have been very happy with it:

    Here's how it arrived in its wooden presentation box:

    And here's the explanation that came with it of its traditional Chinese 12 Shi-Chen Chinese "24hr" subdial:

    I bought it here: http://https://www.good-stuffs.com/All-Chinese-characters-traditional-12-Shi-Chen-watch-by-Vager-Hauers_p_317.html Their webpage for the watch does an excellent job of describing the watch in detail, including the 12 Shi-Chen subdial, as well as the watch's various dial and case color options.

    My only wish is that the the Shi-Chen subdial could be separately settable to display the time in a time zone different from the time displayed in the main dial, so that the watch could effectively have the functionality of a GMT 2nd Time Zone watch. Unfortunately however, that is not possible - the Shi-Chen subdial can only display the Shi-Chen time for the time displayed by the main dial.

    oooh. I have been eyeing those for a while. They look great. I never could find any information on the brand though. They have their own website. Unfortunately, there is no English though. I'd put a link but I'm new here and it won't let me:).
