    Japenese Movement

    Miyota 9015 and seiko 6r15 are the Japanese movements that I have experience with. Both are solid, consistent, and accurate. I have had a 6r15 with some drastic positional variance but it was still accurate in the aggregate. The 9015s that I have had ran better than +\-4 seconds per 24hr. regardless of the positions they rested in or if they were worn.

    Both Seiko and Citizen (Miyota) make quality movements that are used in their own watches as well as other brands, micros especially. Orient also makes their own movements but are not used outside of the company as far as I know. Generally the higher level movements, as mentioned by Raym0016, from Seiko/Citizen compete well with Swiss movements.

    Re: Japenese Movement

    6r15b has been disapointing for me because of too much positional variation.
