Hatton Watches use a high quality quartz movements manufactured by Miyota, part of the Citizen Group.
For nearly 40 years, Miyota has continuously engaged in developing innovative movements that lead the industry in their design, function and quality. Miyota movements are preferred worldwide for their durability, ease of assembly and disassembly and high impact resistance.
Miyota’s quartz movements are different from other companies’ in several ways. Miyota produces almost all its parts internally to maintain high quality. Its movements are designed to consume little power. The Powercell Saving Reset Mechanism (PSRM) enables 1/3 battery savings through pulling of the crown. Also, the function of the Overload Comensation Device (OLCD) can make battery consumption minimal. Furthermore, Miyota’s quartz movements feature the company’s patented Shock Detection. When a watch receives a shock, a large electric current is released that maintains the proper functioning of the watch.
