Hefei Watch Factory 合肥手表厂 was founded in 1970 in the capital city of Anhui, Hefei. After a number of years of producing mechanical watches, a significant investment was made in the mid-1980s to acquire instruments from Switzerland, but this expansion led to overcapacity. The factory produced only quartz watches beginning in about 1990, but it couldn't keep costs low enough to compete with Japanese manufacturers. Hefei Watch Factory limped along until it was disbanded in 2005.
