Shanghai and Sea-Gull -- and there be dragons...

Post by AlbertaTime » February 6th 2023, 7:38pm

Some photos taken today because a friend gifted me a 7" x 3.5" or 18cm x 9cm visually vintage brass dragon lid to some sort of box (box no longer present).

It arrived today in the mail:

Which inspired me to shooting...

A Shanghai modern homage/homage tribute to a 1960s Shanghai military use/军用 dress watch

Grateful for my friends.

I've wanted a dragon watch since I can remember.
Understood. I snapped this up the instant I saw it at the Factory.

I've seen similar ones on Amazon but have wondered about the quality. I imagine yours is a lot better than the ones on Amazon. Seriously though I need a dragon watch.
