The Miyota caliber 6S21 is a 0 jewel quartz chronograph watch movement made in Japan.

PICS COMING SOON – for now, there are images of the similar 6S20.

Miyota 6SXX Family:

The Miyota caliber 6S21 is part of the 6SXX family of quartz chronograph movements including the 6S10, 6S20, 6S30, and 6S11. The 6S21 featured on this page is the closest to the 6S11 with the main difference being that the horizontal layout of the subdials at 3:00 and 6:00 on the 6S21 are positioned vertically on the 6S11 at 12:00 and 6:00.


Although the 6S21 is not considered to be a mecaquartz movement, this caliber has features that are not often found on quartz chronograph watches. For example, the central chronograph hand has a quick reset via a heart cam reset system. The buttons are made to have a substantial clicking feel to them, similar to what it feels like to engage the chronograph on a mechanical timepiece. The central chronograph hand beats 4 times per second.


Miyota states the accuracy of this movement to be +/-20 seconds/month.

Chronograph Hands Not Lining Up?

After a battery change, it’s common for the chronograph hand to not line up on the 12:00 mark. If this happens to your watch, perform the procedure below to reset your chronograph hands:

  1. Pull the crown out to time setting position (two clicks)
  2. Press the top pusher until the chronograph hand is lined up
  3. Push the crown back in

Replacement Price:

At the time of this post, replacement prices for the 6S21 were found in the range of $22.95 to $29.95 USD.
