Diaflex (unbreakable mainspring), 2. Diashock (Seiko’s shock resistant design, equivalent to the Swiss “Incabloc”), 3. Automatic winding, 4. day/date indication, and 5.

I’ve recently purchased a Seiko 5 Sports automatic watch with a 7S36 “23 Jewel” movement. I’ve heard from people that the usual tolerated accuracy range of these watches is around 15sec/day right out of the box, with some as good as 5 or 6sec/day. Well, I tested mine yesterday and it turns out it ran fast by about 22sec over a period of 26 hours.
