Miyota Caliber 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.
Crown Clicks:

Because of the lack of a date setting position, the crown on the 9039 only pulls out one click for time setting. The 9015 has two time setting positions: position 1 for adjusting the date and position 2 for the time.

This is why using a 9015 without a date is not ideal because it will still have the calendar setting position and functionality.

I get why the 9039 may be appealing over a no-date 9015 if you don't want to mess with a 2 position crown. The 0.35mm difference in hand stack height is so minute no one will ever notice. But it's always great to see more options!
