The Shanghai caliber SS1K (also written as SS-1K) is a 17 jewels (17 zuan) manual wind mechanical movement. It is based off of the original Shanghai caliber A581 (which evolved into the A611). This caliber was introduced in circa 1972 and produced until 1975.

There will be two letters above the caliber number. This is the date code for when the movement was manufactured.
