Understanding the Miyota 9015 self-winding mechanical movement

Always looking for precision, reliability and good value for money, we use the 9015 movement from the Japanese manufacturer Citizen Miyota in most of our “three-hand, date” automatic watches. In this article, we will present the Miyota company, the characteristics of the 9015 movement and our opinion on it.

  • The Citizen Miyota company

Citizen is a Japanese watch factory founded in 1918. An eternal rival of Seiko, a high-end Japanese watchmaking company, it is, like the latter, a real factory. In fact, Citizen, through its Myota branch, designs and builds its own calibers. The brand has a real watchmaking history and today offers exclusive watches equipped with patented technologies such as the "Eco Drive" movement. The Citizen manufacture is a Japanese company recognized internationally for the robustness and reliability of its movements. It was on it and its Miyota caliber 9015 movement that we turned when choosing the mechanism for our first automatic watch, Initial .

  • Our opinion on the Citizen Miyota 9015 automatic movement

The Charlie Paris team agrees to praise the merits of this mechanism. Watch enthusiasts agree to describe this movement as a real “tractor”, for its robustness and reliability. This movement has a manual winding, which allows you to wind your watch yourself, using the crown, if you have not worn it for several days and the power reserve has run out. All these qualities combined and its great precision make it a reliable, very serious and very popular movement.
