How can I add space after the equation numbering?

MWE:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{amsmath} 
\begin{document}
  \begin{align}
    a = b + c
  \end{align} 
\end{document}

So I want to move the equation number a little bit more to the left:

a = b + c                                                     (1)   <--   (1)

EDIT/SOLUTION: I could adjust my code thanks to barbara beeton:

\makeatletter
\def\tagform@#1{\maketag@@@{(#1)\unskip\@@italiccorr}\hspace{2em}}
\makeatother

with the \unskip, you're undoing the intentional \hspace.

remove that, or, better still, put the \hspace at the end, and you should get the result you want.
