Similar Calibers:

One of the most popular entry level quartz calibers is the SII PC32A. This PC33 discussed here basically the same as the PC32, but with the addition of a day of the week complication (the PC32 only has the day).

There is also a PC23 in the Standard Movement line with a day/date display, but it is the smaller version with an 18.5mm diameter vs the 23.7mm diameter of the PC33.

Accuracy:

Official documentation claims that the PC33A has an accuracy rating of “Less than 30 seconds per month at normal temperature range.” The normal temperature range they are talking about is between -5C to +50C (23F to 122F).

Battery:

The battery in the PC33 is a cell number SW626Sw, also known as 377/376. A fresh battery should last about 3 years. When replacing the battery, be sure to slip the cell under the thin tab before pressing down. See picture below:
