    Identify this Credor quartz movement

    I came across an older Credor dress watch recently and it appears to use this movement (unfortunately a low resolution image was all that was available). Just wondering if anyone knows the reference and whether it's a HAQ.

    Thanks.

    I do not think Credor were ever HAQ. HAQ were the twin quartz movements only I believe. I think there was one more, but I don't think Credor used it.

    There have certainly been credor-branded watches with haq movements - the 8J movement series, for example.

    Twin quartz and 8J series movements are both used by Credor.

    Without seeing the movement number though I can't tell if the pictured calibre is HAQ or not. I will say though that vintage Credor dress watches are incredible value for money. They're much less known than GS in Western markets, which translates to being available a lot cheaper used.

    You could use Google images to check the 8Js in the attached.

    One crystal. No timing adjustments. Most likely not an HAQ.
