Hattori VD53 Movement

When it comes to the inner workings of a watch, the movement is the heart and soul of the timepiece. It is what keeps the hands ticking and the date changing, and it is what gives the watch its accuracy and reliability. At NSB Watch, we are proud to use the Hattori VD53 movement in our Canal watch.

The VD53 is a hybrid mechanical-quartz movement, also known as a mechaquartz. This means that it combines the accuracy and dependability of a quartz movement with the performance and feel of an automatic movement. The VD53 has a frequency of 32,768 Hz, which means that it vibrates 32,768 times per second, ensuring a highly accurate timekeeping.

One of the most notable features of the VD53 is its chronograph function. The chronograph is a stopwatch feature that allows you to measure elapsed time, and it is activated by the two pushers on the right side of the watch. This is a great feature for timing laps, measuring speed, or timing any other event. The VD53 also has a date function, which is located at the 3 o'clock position on the watch dial.

The VD53 is also known for its durability and reliability. The movement is made with high-quality components and is assembled with precision, ensuring that it can withstand the rigors of everyday wear. Additionally, the VD53 is designed to be low maintenance, requiring only an occasional oiling to keep it running smoothly.

In conclusion, the Hattori VD53 movement is a great choice for any watch enthusiast looking for a reliable, accurate, and functional timepiece. It is a perfect fit for the Canal watch, which is a rugged and durable watch that is built to withstand the elements.
