This Dalian brand was produced by Dalian Watch Factory. The watch factory was located at Dalian 大连 in Liaoning Province 辽宁省 and was set up in 1974. In 2001, it became part of the Sea-gull Group.

One can feel the solidness of this watch once handled it. It is powered by a 17jewels clean standard movement with no date code or factory code. At the caseback, it says "ZDLIA": "Z" = Zhongguo standard movement, "DL"=Dalian and "IA", to my best guess, is  model number of the movement. However, on the dial, it is stated as "SZDIA".Torsten from WUS interpreted that this is Shoubiao Zhongguo Dalian IA. (Link here)
