How many jewels would this quartz caliber have? I can’t find pictures on the internet.

Are there any technical drawings that include the foot hole locations, for either this or the 6N42 series?

Hello, posting the pic related to the movement but it’s not in good quality, just to help users choose their watches or maintenance, everything indicates that it’s the same VJ53.
Would it be an alternative to lower the cost compared to the 7n43 movement? thanks Seiko
