    Base Movement for FC-316?

    Hi guys! Does anyone happen to know what the base movement is for FC's calibre 316 (as in the FC-316v5b9)? I've found this list which details FC's calibres and their corresponding bases (WATCH CARE | Frederique Constant), but the 316 is not included--and I've scoured the internet, but found nothing so far. Do you all happen to know?

    I'd also be interested in what sort of accuracy to expect from it.

    Thanks in advance!

    A Sellita SW-300 – you can tell by the rotor bearing assembly.
    Don’t know how well they regulate them, but a decent watch repairer will be able to regulate it for you, and if he’s good (and the movement’s up for it), it’ll be well within COSC (-4/+6).

    SW300 is a good and reliable base movement. It should provide you with years of trouble-free service.
