TMI aka Chinese Seiko movements & Invicta

Post by koimaster » February 7th 2010, 10:42am

There has recently been a lot of noise by Invicta about the new movement it has and the partnership it has with Seiko. It seems it may not bee all it has been cracked up to be. I am going to post my original post at WTW and the thread it is in for interested parties to read.

the thread is here unless of course removed by Hilda Tan aka Houston. I cannot access the forum board to retrieve the actual post.

I have taken this movement out when replacing a crystal. I compared it to a 7s26 and can se no difference. I think it may be a rebranded 7s26 made seiko in china for third party watch companies.

There is no difference other that is made in China by SII, which is part of Seiko... so it is a Seiko made with Chinese labor, in China... if I recall correctly, they where actually the 7s25 counterpart (a 7s26 with date but no day)
