The Seiko/TMI/SII caliber NH37 is a hand-windable, hacking variation of the widely popular caliber NH35A – one of the world’s most popular automatic movements and is widely available in many affordable/microbrand watches. In comparison, the NH37A listed here has an additional complication: a 24 hour indicator. This is the only difference between the NH35 and NH37.

Crown Position Functions:

0 (against the case): Clockwise = Manual Winding / Counterclockwise = Nothing
1 (pulled out one click): Clockwise = nothing / Counterclockwise = Date setting
2 (pulled out two clicks): Time setting clockwise and counterclockwise

More Information

Interesting Note: Time Module aka Seiko Instruments labels the NH calibers as part of the “Basic” Mechanical Series. They also have NE calibers that are labeled as “Premium” Mechanical Series.

No, it cannot be used as a GMT complication. It is useful when setting the watch, so you know whether the hands are showing AM or PM, however.
