What can you tell us about the new SII NE78A Automatic Chronograph movement? I can't find any information about this movement.
I've asked this before, but received no response

Hi Mike, the SII movement is not a movement used in Seiko watches.

Hi Seiko, I understand that, but you DO make the movement, and I am requesting information about that movement. For starters, where is it made? What brands can it be found as an engine in their products? What are the Tech Specs?

Hi Mike, the movement is made in Shizukuishi, Japan at the Shizukuishi Watch Studio. We cannot say the brands that it can be found in as that is propietary information. As far as the technical specs, we suggest that you contact Invicta as SII has followed their requirements when developing the movement for their use. Thank you for your inquiry.

Hi Seiko, thank you very much for your follow through. It is greatly appreciated.
Really? My understanding is that it is nothing more than a modified NE 15/20 for the OEM market. My emails between SII, TMI and myself indicate the movement is not different, only certain parts were made in Japan and assembly was elsewhere....
I am also curious why a forum member opened an Seiko Sawtooth which says made in Japan and it has China on the inside case.
I will add that Invicta claimed this was a 36,000vbh movement when first sold and that Sieko and Invicta developed this movement and that it was the equal to the valjoux 7750 in both quality and price,
