    It's most like a Japanese quartz watch. Your right about the 50m water resistance however Japanese movement just means that it was made in Japan could be mechanical or quartz. As to the brand I can't really help out I've never heard of it. Most likely it is a pop up brand from the quartz revolution.

    Get a watchmaker open it up and identify the movement. Most of the manuals are to be found online.
    Kind regards

    The dial graphics would suggest the movement to be a Miyota (Citizen) 3U62 depthmeter, but the absence of the depth gauge on the caseback suggests this may not be the case. The 60'/24h/60' arrangement could also be indicative of the Miyota 0S90 1/100 chrono but then the graphics are off. Actually come to think of it nothing looks right - the 24h dial doesn't match the time, and it should always do because it's slaved to the main hour hand ... you had best take it to a watchmaker.

    It seems to be a quartz Miyota. A new battery will make it run again.
