The Citizen caliber 8200 (8200A) is an automatic movement with 21 jewels and a frequency of 21,600 vph. This caliber is made in Japan by Miyota (a division of Citizen Watch).

Citizen 8200 vs Miyota 8205:

The Citizen caliber 8200 is appears to basically be Citizen’s branded version of the Miyota (owned by Citizen) caliber 8205. You can learn more about that caliber and see for yourself here.

Hacking Seconds Hand:

As with the Miyota 82XX calibres, the Citizen branded 8200A is possible with and without hacking. Citizen actually acknowledges this in the current instruction manual distributed with 82XX and 83XX powered watches  (albeit in almost the last page, and practically in the last sentence):

“Second hand stop function (Applicable models only)” -Citizen Instruction Manual, Model No.NK0*・NK5* CTZ-B8205 Cal.82**・83**・41** (page 27)

The key phrase here being applicable models only.

can parts be interchangeable between the 8200 Caliber and the 8205 Caliber?

I am new here. I am just starting to go into movements and tinker with them. My experiment first is to replace a Miyota 8200 movement. I see 8205 on the site. I am guessing 8200 and 8205 are both the same except that the 8205 has hacking and the 8200 does not. Am I correct, or are their specs different? I have to also install hands and a new dial on the movement, it will be the first time trying. Any tips?
