The Orient caliber F6922 is a self-winding automatic movement with 22 jewels. Orient makes their movements in-house in Japan.

You may have seen other sites list this movement incorrectly as caliber F69-22 or F.6922, but Orient officially writes the caliber number as F6922.

Accuracy

Orient claims accuracy of the caliber F6922 movement to be within -15 second – +25 seconds per day. These ratings are based on the watch being at room temperature with the mainspring fully wound and the dial up position.

Orient suggests that deviations from the accuracy claims should not be regarded within one day but within a one week period of results.

From the Orient manual:

“In order to maintain the watch’s accuracy, we recommend wearing the watch at least 8 hours a day.”

Power Reserve

The Orient caliber F6922 has a power reserve of 40 or more hours. Winding the crown 30 times will wind the spring fully and achieve full power reserve.

Setting the date

Avoid setting the date on your F6922 watch within the hours of 8:00pm to 4:00am.

In Orient Watch USA’s own words:

“After years of development, Orient had perfected a new watch caliber, the F6922, an automatic, hand-winding and hacking movement. It was built to succeed the oft-revered 46943 movement, which had powered Orient watches reliably for more than 40 years. Among the first watches to be powered by the new in-house caliber were the Mako II and the Ray II, which were released in April 2016.” –6/28/16

I just picked up an Orient Ray II with this movement. The information provided by this site really helped me make a final decision between this and another dive watch of similar design and specifications, but other one I was looking at has different movement. The information provided on this site about the other movement was very helpful as well! After a week of wearing the Ray II, it’s only added about 32 seconds total,… Read more »

This movement made me choose this watch as opposed to the Seiko SKX

This movement is simply amazing. So far it has surpassed the 6R15 in my seiko SARB035 in terms of accuracy, for the fraction of the price. Words cannot describe how reliable and precise this thing is, especially for the price !

this is promising. I was not impressed by the accuracy of my F6922 and as a result I have created some issues which I need to have fixed. Can you tell me what sort of accuracy you are getting. I figure my example is probably an outlier and I am considering purchasing another watch with the same movement to give it a second chance. The one in my RA-AA0002 was running over a minute fast!… Read more »

Maybe I got lucky, mine is about 3-5 seconds fast per day when I’m not wearing it, when I’m wearing it it goes down to about 1-2 seconds fast per day.

Hello, I had the same problem. My Mako III was +6 seconds per day and 3 months later suddenly +40 sec a day. I have demagnetized them and now I have my +6 secs/day:-).

Hi Carlton. My Ray 2 (about a yeay old, purchased from creation) runs at about +1-3 per day. I’m astounded as you would expect. I have thought about flipping it but can’t go through with it due to the accuracy. Instead, I plan on replaceing the bracelet (I often wear it on a nato strap because the stock bracelet is not good) with a strapcode option. Its a keeper.

When i first got my Kamasu 3 weeks ago, it was also advancing a minute per day. Had it serviced at the center and after 3 days, it’s about 2 minutes ahead already. Will keep on observing for an entire week and if things don’t change, will bring it back to the service center again. I hope they can keep it running at the specification levels of +25/-15 sec per day.

Grafton, I love my SKX and it is a go to but the Ray 2 with is hacking and winding, not to mention the movement accuracy, makes it a keeper. A bracelet upgrade from strapcode will be just the job. So, as a comparison, my head knows the Ray 2 is a better watch, but if I coukd only have one of the two, my heart is with the SKX.

Hi, I bought an Orient watch with this caliber in. However I have had some issues with the movement and I am looking for a service manual. Does any one have such a document they can send me? I can not see one online. Thank you

Just look up any service manual for SUWA Seiko 6000 series movement. They are very similar.

An under rated watch brand which deserves more exposure. Rock solid movements based on what my own experience has shown me and what others have discussed on multiple watch forums as well.

Dear Friends

I am looking for the “lift angle” of the movement F6922. Does anyone has that information? Please share it with me if you know.

Have a nice day

Most likely 52 degrees, like the Seiko movements that it’s based on.

I am an owner of an Orient mako II faa02002d3, my watch is very accurate when I’m not wearing it and the dial is vertically (about +1sec per day), but when i am wearing it runs about +180 sec per day, what should i do?

I have observed that if I am doing something which requires a lot of rapid movement, such as cleaning the car, my Orient/Seiko movements can gain a lot of time. Sounds like your balance spring may be touching something in certain positions which can lead to gains of that magnitude (due to effectively shorter spring) Usually this is caused by being slightly out of shape. A replacement balance wheel (easily sourced) for an Orient 46943… Read more »

I had exactly the same problem with my new Kano (same F6922 movement in a larger 44mm case). From day one the watch gained +3 minutes per day on the wrist (24/7). When the watch was left dial-up on the desk the accuracy was an astonishing +2 seconds per day! I kept the watch another three months struggling to regulate it but in vain! When on the wrist the watch seemed to be totally out… Read more »

Obviously, you have tried to demagnetize it, correct? Maybe something in your daily routine causes magnetization. Just a thought.
