The Miyota caliber 9039 is a 24 jewels automatic movement that was introduced to the market in 2018. As a member of the 9000 family of movements, this caliber is part of Miyota’s Premium Automatic line. It tells the time via a standard 3 hand display with no date option. This movement is made in Japan.

9039 VS 9015

There is a similar and more common Miyota caliber 9015. Both are 26mm in diameter, have 24 jewels, both beat at 28,800 vph, and have the same dial feet location. The two main differences between these movements are:

  • The calendar complication
  • The height of the hand stack

The 9039 is essentially a low-hand height version of the 9015.

Time Setting:

The caliber 9039 is a no-date movement so the crown only has two positions: winding (position 1) and time adjusting (position 2). The set the time on your 9039 powered watch, pull the crown out one click to position 2. You may need to unscrew the crown if it is a divers style watch with a screw-down system.

Winding + Power Reserve:

Winding the movement 15-20 clockwise will start the movement. To fully wind the movement, turn the crown 40 times. The power reserve when the movement is fully wound is supposed to be more than 42 hours.

Accuracy:

Miyota claims that the caliber 9039 offers accuracy of -10 ~ +30 seconds per day. This is measured within 10-60 minutes from a full wind via the crown.

After about a week, my new Richard LeGrand settled in to +2 sec/day. No second hand skip (like I had with the Miyota 8015.)

This is my favorite movement at the moment. I have it in my favorite watch at the moment the Marloe Morar diver. The only thing I wish it had was the date.

I’ve got the Marlow Morar Black Edition (serial number 13!!). I don’t know if you picked one up in the end but as of today only 2 remain on the Marlow website of the 250 they made. I’ve had it since December 2019 and it’s been amazing. IT is accurate between +3 and +5s a day and yes it has a noisy rotor since it is unidirectional winding so it “freewheels” the other direction and… Read more »

I am looking at a few watches right now and some have this movement and other have a 8215. I am curious to why you say this is better than 8 series and should I forget about the watches with that movement? I’m new to all this! Thanks in advance!

Timex released their S1 model automatic for $450. It does house this movement. Very sharp watch.

With apologies if the question is silly, but does this movement have the same type of very noticeable rotor noise that other Miyota calibers have?

It’s a good question, and yes, the 9039 just as loud. I have noticed that my full rotor 9 series Miyotas are much louder then my 82 series with the cutout rotor. Don’t know if it’s because the rotor is lighter or if I’m imagining it though.

Many thanks for your response. I don’t have any experience with this type of movements but have read about some people being annoyed by its noise (while others like it). I take it you aren’t bothered by it?

Wrong. It still produces rotor noise, but saying it just as loud is simply misleading and untrue. The rotor noise has been reduced by almost 50%. You can still hear it, but you really need to put your ear right next to the case back to do so.

you may have a defective unit. RMA it as soon as possible.

You are right it’s not that load of a movement but you can feel the movement winding and wearing the watch it looks like it shakes the watch from side to side pretty powerful movement.

This 9039 is a very well made quality workhorse movement. I bought Baltic Aquascaphe literally a week ago, and it has been giving me accurately +2sec against atomic clock. Very satisfied and pleasantly surprised. Rotor noise compared to 82xx series is definitely lessened, but it is there, but it will not be a hindrance to many. This movement is designed to be active. If you need to wind it, you can do so. Manual winding… Read more »
