Can anyone suggest a great reliable japanese automatic movement that is at an affordable price point with the following specs:
- Fits into a 40mm case
- Is thin ish to ensure the watch build is less than 10mm high
- Date at 6:00
- At least 21 Jewels
- Seconds hand has smooth sweep (with no stuttering issues like some movements i've read about caused by indirect drive train?)
- Hacking optional
Happy if the date window has to be at 3:00, if this widens my options significantly, but preference is 6:00.
Thanks in advance for any constructive comments and help.
