I would consider this to be a good, middle of the road movement. With jewels and a reputable manufacturer, it is miles ahead of a cheap Chinese movement. It is not high end, though, as it is not thermocompensated, and hence is standard accuracy. No biggie on a practical level, as the typical 15 seconds per month suffices for almost all practical needs.
I'd say it's a good movement for the price of the watch. Many watches of this price point would have the dreaded chinese knockoff. Nice watch, too.
Thanks for the info Bruce. I am mostly a mechanical watch guy so I am clueless on quartz movts. I bought a watch in my earlier watch collecting days for $300+ and later opened the case to discover a 10 cent piece of junk movt - some name on it I had never heard of and looked very shoddy. I suppose you have to know what you are buying whether it is quartz or mechanical.
Bathys is a new manufacturer we have been chatting about over in the dive forum. Here is a pic from their site:
So I was wondering - who makes the best or most accurate quartz movts? Is there like a top five list you have?
We had an article on the forum that dealt with that in disgusting depth until the dog ate the hard disk. O| Here's a link to a good list, though ...Originally Posted by Lane
ETA, Citizen and Seiko make the best (most accurate) quartz movements.Originally Posted by Lane
Thanks for the info all.
If I want to learn more about quartz movements in general - what is a good source on the net?
I saved the posting about quartz accuracy, as it was one of the most useful things in this forum. Would you like me to repost it? I wasn't sure whether that would be appropriate.Originally Posted by Bruce Reding
Heck if I know what's appropriate - but I'd like to see it. Just post it as a new thread.
That'd be great, hedrick! Thanks! I've been wanting to repost it with some minor clarifications, but frankly it will be a while before I get to those. If you could post it for now, and I will post the amended version as a sticky.Originally Posted by hedrick
Done. I trust you can change the author from me to you.Originally Posted by Bruce Reding
FYI: I rescued it from the Google cache, and backtranslated HTML to stupid BBS codes.
