Orient makes their movements in-house in Japan.

You may have seen this movement incorrectly listed as caliber F6L-24 or F.6L24, but Orient officially writes the caliber number as F6L24.

Power Reserve:

The Orient caliber F6L24 has a power reserve of 40 or more hours. Winding the crown 30 times will wind the spring fully and achieve full power reserve. Please report your power reserve experience below.

Orient does not sell movements and they do not supply watch parts suppliers with movements. Therefore, you cannot replace an Orient movement unless you purchase another Orient watch and pull the movement from it.

Pros and Cons:


  • Affordable automatic
  • Hacking mechanism
  • Hand-winding ability


  • Not much official info or documentation provided by the manufacturer
  • Parts are not easily available
