Seiko Quartz Caliber 8A to 8J & 9F movement information.

Recommended Posts

Having got an early 8J with the pre 'Dolce' branded dial, im struggling to pin down which decade it was made in, watch sleuth can only suggest 81, 91 or 2001

So does any one know when seiko introduced the 8J line of calibers? The full data base on watch sleuth for all 8j references does not give a date. To complicate this i believe the 8A might be from the below list just an earlier version of the 8j? Does any one know anything about these higher end seiko quartz. I believe they are thermocompensated but even that is disputed. The main interest is in their 10 second variance per year super accuracy. I would just like to tie the watch down to a decade. In my eye it looks and feels 1980's but that would make it a 1981 did seiko do the 8j in 81 or indeed one of its predecessors 8A? @kevkojak @scottswatches? anyone?

They were 1980s mate, the 90s saw them replaced by the 5a and 5y series plus the 7n series which ran for 15 years or so - almost every 90s quartz I buy is a 7n42 or 7n43
