MIYOTA 9039 VS 9015

MIYOTA 9039 VS 9015

As you can see in the chart above, the Miyota caliber 9039 and 9015 are nearly identical with exception to two main differences:

The calendar complication
The height of the hand stack

The most notable difference when the 9039 and 9015 are compared is that the 9039 does not have a date option. The 9015 is available with 3 date options. This is not to say that a watch with the 9015 has to have a date. Before the 9039 was introduced, watch brands seeking to design a no-date timepiece would simply cover the date wheel with the dial. This Borealis Olipsio is a good example of using a 9015 without a date aperture cutout in the dial – now they can just use the 9039.

It's thoughtful of Miyota to assign two different calibre numbers to the same movement, but with different length of the pinions. Tissot wasn't so thoughtful back in the day with the cal.27 - depending on the intended dial, these could be equipped with stacks of different height, with no information disclosed anywhere on the movement. And I'd bet they weren't the only ones to have done so.
