The Miyota caliber 82S0 is from the 8215/821A family but offers a skeletonized dial design. There is also a gilt (gold tone) version available.


Miyota claims that the caliber 82S0 offers accuracy of -20 ~ +40 seconds per day. This is measured within 10-60 minutes from a full wind via the crown. To fully wind the movement, turn the crown 40 times. The winding direction of the rotor is counterclockwise.

82S0 vs 82S5/82S7:

The caliber 82S0 has the following layout:

  • Central seconds
  • Open balance (skeletonized) at 7:00

The caliber 82S5 and 82S7 are based on the same movement, but the caliber 82S5 has small seconds instead of central seconds. The caliber 82S7 has small seconds instead of central seconds and also a 24 hour (can also be day/night) indicator at 9:00.

Upgraded Hacking Seconds:

As of mid-2019, Miyota seems to have listened to the desires of the watch community and found a way to integrate a hacking mechanism (stop seconds device) into the 82S0. This means that the seconds hand will stop when the crown is pulled out. We have reached out to Miyota and will update this listing as soon as we have a reply with more information as to when they made this change. Keep in mind that although there are 82S0 movements popping up on the market, the current majority of 82S0 powered watches will be non-hacking. If you watch doesn’t hack, it doesn’t mean it’s broken.

Replacement Prices:

Replacement prices were found online around $54.95.

Please allow us to interrupt your gear turning and caliber learning to say thank you. Thank you for being here! Now, back to the movement..

It appears that the 8250 variant is used in the Bulova 96A189, built exclusively for Macy’s.


Bulova 98A187 B7 share the same 82S0. They shift the movement by 1 hour so that the crown is at 2 o’clock and the open heart hit the middle of 6 o’clock.

Used in all Caliper Timepieces watches.


The Bulovas 96A199 98A187 and 97A136 all have the Miyota 82S0. On the Miyota movement specs page it mentions that the the crown movement for hand winding is clockwise, which should not be confused with the rotor weight which is wound counterclockwise when facing the dial, as specified on this page.


Used in Ingersoll “The Linden” Automatic, although not mentioned.

Used in the Tempus Faire Comrade Skeleton


Used also in Festina F20490 watches. But this movement in Festina is with hacking function.


My watch, a Emporio Armani Meccanico (AR600008)uses a modified version of this movement (some metal has been removed to show more of the gears and it has a different rotor.)
