I believe this brand, Tianjin Wuyi, had it first. Shanghai used it with their peacock in the center.

Here is a thread at WUS with a bunch of pictures of old vintage Chinese watches with textured dials. You can see several like the Beijing and Celadon along with various alterations.

Beijing is an old brand, they may have had an old dial watch like this, I’m not sure.

Stock pictures are better then my shots. Here it is though, looking at the leather strap it looks only worn a time or two. There are no marks on it.

I couldn’t get a good shot, it reflects everything. I’ll try again when the sun is up.

Great looking dial, almost celadon like.
It is beautiful, and very, very similar to the Celadon (which had no date).
