Since this was asked for some times, here are a few figures of movement production in the Glashütter Uhrenbetrieb (GUB) during the communist era (note, they are far from comprehensive):

GUB Cal. 60 (1952-58): 280,410 pcs.
GUB cal. 62 (1951-58): ca. 191,900 pcs.
GUB cal. 63 (1953-59): ca. 361,149 pcs.
GUB cal. 67.1 (1960-67): 190,360 pcs.
GUB cal. 69.1 (1960-71): 411,750 pcs.
GUB cal. 70.1 (1960-71): 388,820 pcs
GUB cal. 74 "Spezimatik" (1964-80) 1.857,966 pcs. (!)
GUB cal. 75 (1964-80): 1.858,466 pcs (!)
GUB cal. 77 (1959-70): ca. 181,101 pcs
GUB cal. 11-26 "Spezichron" (1978-85): ca. 290,880 pcs
GUB cal. 9-20 (Lady's watch movement - 1971-90): ca. 3.399,006 watches, additionally 2.610,597 movts


Not included are Urofa movements, that were produced within the (forecedly) unified East German watch production group, and that at least partially were used in GUB watches as well. Neither included are movements produced in less than 100,000 pieces.
