The Orient caliber F6922 is a self-winding automatic movement with 22 jewels. Orient makes their movements in-house in Japan.

You may have seen other sites list this movement incorrectly as caliber F69-22 or F.6922, but Orient officially writes the caliber number as F6922.


Orient claims accuracy of the caliber F6922 movement to be within -15 second – +25 seconds per day. These ratings are based on the watch being at room temperature with the mainspring fully wound and the dial up position.

Orient suggests that deviations from the accuracy claims should not be regarded within one day but within a one week period of results.

From the Orient manual:

“In order to maintain the watch’s accuracy, we recommend wearing the watch at least 8 hours a day.”

Power Reserve

The Orient caliber F6922 has a power reserve of 40 or more hours. Winding the crown 30 times will wind the spring fully and achieve full power reserve.

Setting the date

Avoid setting the date on your F6922 watch within the hours of 8:00pm to 4:00am.

In Orient Watch USA’s own words:

“After years of development, Orient had perfected a new watch caliber, the F6922, an automatic, hand-winding and hacking movement. It was built to succeed the oft-revered 46943 movement, which had powered Orient watches reliably for more than 40 years. Among the first watches to be powered by the new in-house caliber were the Mako II and the Ray II, which were released in April 2016.” –6/28/16

I just picked up an Orient Ray II with this movement. The information provided by this site really helped me make a final decision between this and another dive watch of similar design and specifications, but other one I was looking at has different movement. The information provided on this site about the other movement was very helpful as well! After a week of wearing the Ray II, it’s only added about 32 seconds total, which lands at about +4 to 5 seconds a day. I love it and don’t mind at all having a watch that’s faster. I’d rather… Read more »
