[…] took the photo sharp enough to zoom in: (still hardly readable) It's a PC21S, made in Singapore, according to this site (first hit in google…don't know how dependable the info is), it leads back to Seiko. […]

And by “Most cheap quartz watches from China” you do mean fake watches right?

Fake only if they try to sell it as something it isn’t. I’ve bought a few that were very open about Made In China, shipped from China. Nothing fake about it, it was a Chinese watch.

Thank you for the info on this, I saw this movement in the Curren model 8266 and I had wondered who the manufacturer was. Excellent quality for the cost of this budget timepiece! Even though it is one of Seiko’s cheaper movements, the quality is still going to be much better than a lot of the other Chinese quartz movements that use plastic gears.

One of the names of these cheap Chinese quartz watches was TWINS. After 20 years, mine is still quite pecise though, about 2 seconds per week.
