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.

Read the full post: Miyota Caliber 9039 VS 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.

Dial Feet Location:

Replacement Prices

At the time of this post, caliber 9039 replacement prices were found online in the range of $99.00 – $103.95 USD.

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 »

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 »

The smiths de luxe PRS-25 has this wonderful movement. Mainly, no date function so no ghost position. Perfect. I have a few timepieces with ETA movements with comparable accuracy as expected. Top tier Japanese miyota should be accurate. One of my timepieces have the P5000 movement, which is a clone to one of the better ETA workhorse movements. They are amazing however, they have a date function which is being used on a no-date face… Read more »

[…] The Miyota 9039 that powers this watch is part of the premium Miyota line of automatic movements. It’s a true no-date movement and features seconds hacking and unidirectional winding (so the rotor can free spin, like on the Valjoux 7750, which I find rather charming). It’s definitely not a cheap option, but not a high end one too.  […]

Just got a Helson Hammerhead 42 with this movement, my first watch with this movement. I came here to look up the details of the movement just because it is so good. It settled into -5 seconds………per week!!! And no noise at all. I have to rotate against my ear to hear the rotor. Maybe due to Helson’s magic, but couldn’t be happier.

Hello everybody,
I have a NewMark 71 Diver no date with the 9039 in the back and it is running within COSC. It is that good. I have this watch for a year now and I think it is better than the Swiss. I have many watches also Swiss with ETA and Valjoux but the Japanese are really great Honestly.

The deviation between dial up, crown up, crown down etc (the delta) is impressively small. With such a good level of… Read more »
