Orient F6T22 is used in Orient Helios and Orient Bambino Open Heart and any open heart models above 2017, accuracy is about +20 to -15 per day. Power reserve up to ~43 hours.

similar movement: F6922 (day-date with 22 jewels), F6722 (date with 22 jewels), F6224 (date with 24 jewels)

I’m getting less than +1 on mine. I’m totally impressed with this movement.

when you guys place your watch down, how do you orientate it?

Hi I am a new user for the F6T22 movement. As a matter of fact the orient bambino open heart is my first ever automatic.
I was wondering that is the section displaying the “+” and “-” markers on the back of the case , is that the power reserve indicator?? Because I winded the watch multiple times but that indicator didn’t budge.
Is there something that I am not seeing ?

Hi there, it was my first too and i’m so far impressed by it regarding that it’s a rather unexpensive (by no means cheap as in lacking precision) automatic watch. I’m by no means an expert on automatic movements, but i believe this to be for calibrating how fast/slow the dials move. I’ve never messed around with this for obvious reasons as i’m getting +10Sek (worst case) in a week which comes down to +1,42sec a day, on my movement. In most instances i set my watch at the beginning of every month -40sec. to the actual time (atomic watch)… Read more »

That +/- is a calibration lever used in the factory to adjust the time keeping (or later if needing the watch serviced and adjusted) and doesn’t move from its set position.

This particular movement does not have a reserve indicator.

In my experience, this movement performs almost perfectly for the price. At worst I’ve recorded +1.39s /day over 30 days. This is after 8 months of ownership. I have personally never experienced a better automatic movement than this in a watch around the £150 – £250 range and rivals movements in far more expensive watches in my collection. Should be talked about more!

“ORIENT Contemporary RN-AR0001B Semi Skeleton Mechanical small seconds” watch is listed as having this movement. I’ve recently purchased one, and it actually uses the F6S22 which has 24 jewels instead of 22. What are the other differences?

I purchased the watch from Conteenium, where the movement is mis-identified in their online listing. Honestly, I can’t find a site where it’s identified correctly. I did snap that the photo above, that’s my watch. You’re welcome to use it.

The F6S22 does indeed feature small seconds at 6-oclock, and is designed for open heart applications, but neither of those “complications” seem like they would require two extra jewels in the movement.

Hello. I own Orient Open Heart with F6T22 and I was wondering. What type of case back it is. Is is screw-off type or Snap-off?.
