WatchOtaku : Miyota 8215


The Miyota (Citizen) 8215 is an inexpensive automatic movement, often used in lower-priced watches. Durable, reliable and inexpensive, it can take a lot of abuse and minimal maintenance, much like the Seiko 7S26. Spec-wise, the only functional difference from the 7S26 is the addition of handwinding and (in practice) slightly better accuracy.
