    6R15D VS 6R15C

    Hey guys. I have just purchased a SARB033 and the watch came with 6R15D movement. From what I read and the reviews I see it was always 6R15C movement. Anyone knows the difference between both movements?

    I too just bought an 035 and it is D movement, not C. I wonder if others have comments on this?

    Some say it's just a manufacturing identification https://forums.watchuseek.com/f21/rec...-665232-5.html

    Hi, I recently bought a Seiko 035 with 6r15D movement, it is used.

    I told the vendor to wind it and test accuracy over 24 hours before shipping it and it came in -16 seconds.

    I actually nearly won the bidding on another Sarb 035 with the 6r15c movement, which was also tested for 24 hours prior to selling, and it came in at -20 seconds.

    I don't have a lot of confidence now with the 6r15 movement in general.

    I've had two Seiko watches, one with 7s26, the other 4r36, and both were averaging +5 secs consistently.

    I have purchased this Sarb 035 with the 6r15d but not taken delivery, and I don't think he has worn it for a while. I noticed the specs are -15/+25 on this movement, but could the accuracy improve with more consistent wearing? For example, can a movement be initially inaccurate if not worn, but becomes accurate with more use?

    To improve accuracy just have your watch regulated by a watchmaker.
