This is a used Beihai limited edition to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Beijing Watch Factory 1958-2008. Its serial number is 0633 / 2008. Its wooden box is missing, thus a complimentary carton box comes with this package. Its collection certificate is enclosed (see attached two photos, front and back). The previous owner said the watch was just maintained by the factory. Close examination reveals the following result when the watch is fully-winded.

Face up: +4s, 305°

Face down: 0s, 315°

Crown left: -6s, 266°

Crown down: 0s, 267°

Crown right: -14s, 258°

Crown up: -10s, 260°

Date of production written on the certificate is 2008. It is hard to believe this twelve-year old Beihai is working better than a brand new Beihai produced in 2020. Its exterior is 90%+ new, installed with new black lizard leather strap. 

Since 2008 Beihai limited edition had always been priced at $499 until it was sold out in 2016. This used one is priced the same at $499, to be sold to a watch connoisseur who likes Beihai series.
