The Seiko caliber 7002A is an automatic movement with 17 jewels found in many pre-SKX Seiko divers. This caliber was introduced in the late 1980s after Seiko started to phase out the production of the caliber 6309 around 1988. Seiko produced the 7002 until circa 1996 – which is when the caliber 7S26 was introduced.

Some of the topics covered in this caliber listing:

Power Reserve:

Without a hand-winding function, this movement can take some time to reach full power reserve. Achieve this by continuously wearing your watch and/or shaking it side to side. Once full power reserve is realized, the movement should run for approximately 40 hours, up to 43 hours continuously.

Different Versions:

From an article on Time Zone by Rob B:

Consulting the Seiko parts catalogs revealed that the cals 7002, 7005 7006 and 7009 are almost identical, sharing many parts in common. The main difference is in thickness, day/date features and jewelling. The 7005 is date only, the 7009 is a day/date and the 7002A is date only and has a different auto winding weight. Since this particular movement is a “date only”, then one concludes it started life as a 7005A, to be transfomed at a later date by whatever parts were to hand at the time…

Hey, I have this 7002A mov. in my ’96 SDS101 Diver and since it hasn’t worked in a few years was thinking about replacing the mov with something more modern. What would you suggest that will fit just right in the same size case? Thank you

I wish it had a manual wind option in addition to autowind. Who has time to shake and wind if you don’t wear it daily?
In spite of this, I do like my cool Seiko 7002.

Can the 7002 movement be replaced with an NH36 movement to get manual winding and hacking?

I’ve got a 7019A in the post coming from India. Is this part of the 70 series featured here? It’s hard to tell from the photos of it on eBay, but it looks genuine. The typeface and quality of the engraved lettering all looks typical Seiko. Where the movement listed here has “Singapore” near the rotor hub, the 7019A has “Japan”
