Thanks in advance for any info.

Welcome,

None of the information you have given is of any help at all in answering any questions you might have. Among the Miyota movements that use that cell is the Miyota 2035, and the 2115. This is a common quartz movement. There are other Miyota movements that use that cell as well. Take a magnified look at the movement for a model number, and get back to us. In order to post a picture, there is a sticky near the top of the main message board page that can help. We work best with pictures! The same instructions are available on the main Wrist Watch forum page where you started your search.

That looks to me like a Miyota 2035. You don't show the watch, so I am unable to tell you anything about it. If it has a calendar, then I believe it is possibly a 2115. Nothing special about the movement. I very much doubt anybody services them since the movement alone can be purchased for around $5.00, or less if a quantity are purchased. What do you want to know anout it? These movements are often found in watches that aren't cheap! Maybe we can help further if you show a picture of the watch, and ask specific questions. But bear in mind that you can't turn a sow's ear into a silk purse!

According to a quick Google search, it's a Puritan 60563W quartz watch. At one time it was available at Walmart.

The SR626SW is the kind of battery it takes; the Maxell equivalent of a Renata 377.

Miyota is a very common brand of quartz movement. Somewhere (on the side of the movement you can see) there will be another series of numbers, probably four digits. It will likely be molded into the plastic, and may be under the battery.

[Edit] - It's definitely in the M20xx series. Tell us how many hands it has and whether it has a day or date display and we can get a specific movement model, or at least narrow it down to three. If that will help.

The thing with 197S printed on the side is the capsule containing the quartz crystal.

What else did you want to know?

Glen

I've got boxes full of them from my predecessor. Most of them only need a service. They take less time than a Rolex to service. The shop charges $60 to service them. There are customers who will pay that because these are one of the best quartz movements that Citizen ever made.
