>insert happy dance and and exclamation marks :
These are kinda rare!!
There were only somewhere between 130,000 and 160,000 Beijing BS-2 watches made between 1961-1968, and this is one of them. This one's knocked around a bit, but all correct: crown, caseback, movement, dial.
And I didn't even know I had it till today. I checked back: I'd posted a very poor example I had before, that had an incorrect crown. I knew I had that one, and was always disappointed at the condition.
But I'd always presumed this one was a BS-5.
Oh happy day!!
