The Miyota caliber 9132 is a member of the 9100 family and 9 series of Miyota premium automatic movements. It is made in Japan with 26 jewels. The notable features of this movement are that has a 24 hand at 6 and a power reserve indicator at 12.
Some of the topics covered in the caliber listing:
24 Hour Hand Subdial:
The 24 hour hand cannot be set independently, it is not a GMT or second time zone indicator. The 24 hour indicator follows the central hour hand. Think of it as a day/night indicator.
Miyota claims that the caliber 9132 offers accuracy of -10 ~ +30 seconds per day. This is measured within 10-60 minutes from a full wind via the crown. Winding the crown 15-20 times will get the seconds hand to start moving. To fully wind the movement, turn the crown ~40 times. You will get better accuracy results from a full wind.
There are two references for the caliber 9132 with the differences being the date window location on the dial: 3:00 or 6:00. The date at 3:00 is readily available, however, if a watch brand wants to design a dial with the date at 6:00, it is a special order. Special orders usually have a lead time of at least 2 months and require an minimum order of 1,000 units.
9132-20A – Date at 3:00
9132-20Z – Date at 6:00
At the time of this post, replacement prices for the Miyota 9132 were found in the range of $106.00 to 167.99 USD.
Does Seiko have a similar movement?
The closest thing Seiko has to Miyota’s 9132 may be the SII NE20. It has also has a power reserve indicator (at 12:00 compared to 9:30). Where the 9132 has a 24hr hand at 6:00, the Seiko has a date hand; and where the 9132 has a date at 3:00, the Seiko has a day of the week hand. This is not to say that these two calibers are interchangeable or can be swapped, they cannot because the sizes are different. However, this information could be useful if you are in the market for a watch with certain complications and cannot find the perfect piece.
