You might find this caliber listed as being produced by Hattori aka Epson aka TMI (Time Module Inc) aka Seiko Instruments Inc. We’re not sure why all the different names, but sure they all lead back to Seiko. If you anything about this please comment below!

From Wikipedia:

Seiko Holdings Corporation (SEIKO) delegates a large portion of the manufacturing in its watch business to SII and EPSON. Most of watches manufactured by SII are sold through the Seiko Watch Corporation, a subsidiary of Seiko Holdings Corporation. In recent years Seiko Instruments has tried to establish its own marketing channel and brands – Sizukuishi Watch, appetime, J.SPRINGS, ISSEY MIYAKE, tsumori chisato, ALESSI, cacharel, etc.

On January 26, 2009, Seiko Instruments and Seiko Holdings announced that the two companies will be merged on October 1, 2009 through a share swap. Seiko Instruments became a wholly owned subsidiary of Seiko Holdings on October 1, 2009.

How do I adjust the running speed of this movement?

Sam
Guest
Sam

Someone else may want to add their input here, but I do not believe it is possible to adjust the speed of this movement. Is it running fast or slow?

Ulrich
Guest
Ulrich

A bit slow, maybe the battery, maybe just a bit slow, the reason I might want to adjust it. So if anyone knows a way please let us know.

I’ve got an Invicta 10701 watch with this movement. Does anyone know the hand sizes for the subdials? I know that the diameter is .20 but I’m not sure of the length of the hands. Thanks!

Wouldn’t it depend on the dial design and not the movement? You might have to do your best to measure it yourself. Doubtful this info will be available anywhere.

I should have clarified that I meant the pin hole size in the hands. I figured it out. Thanks.
