    Seriously, the watch is discontinued and if you search the model name on Google, you get results from Rakuten, Amazon JP and other non English sites. None of them have any useful information on what the movement is, especially after automatic translation. This is a place for the exchange of information and I'm not asking an offensive question...but the fact that I anticipated a response similar to yours (and actually getting it) is quite telling of why this subforum rarely gets any activity. Thanks for that.

    Have a look at these two items. There's a lot of interesting background about some older HAQ watches, including the Seiko. Note that 'HEQ' was changed to 'HAQ', as too many people thought that 'high-end quartz' could include some crappy movement in a solid gold case.

    Haven't pulled out this vintage HAQ for a while. Need to periodically check if the battery needs changing...

    I filed it under "Grails Achieved":

    Seiko V.F.A. 3823-7040:

    No tags, strap not original but does have the box, buckle and papers. NOS crystal makes a big difference.

    Cheers,

    Ok, sorry.. but having the name of the watch I feel you should be able to find it... a lot of info about older Seiko quartz movements is directly here on wus, especially 8fxx family .. and this one is even not so old..

    Today I'm wearing the Citizen Chronomaster CTQ57-1201:

    I bought this one from Japan a couple of weeks ago. It's definitely a beautiful watch with the curved crystal, minute hand and hour markers - I'm just not quite sure if it's good enough to get wrist time from my The Citizen NA0000-59B. I'm happy that I did manage to buy it, though - it's a 2014 example in mint condition, with all the boxes, papers etc.

    It has an 8F56 movement.
    This was originally speced at +- 20 seconds per year, although according to posts here they perform poorly after a few years.

    Here is the manual for the 8F56.

    This information took about 30 seconds to find on google btw
