    Miyota 9015 Automatic Advise

    Hello,

    I just purchased a watch with a Miyota 9015 automatic movement. This is the the first watch I have owned with a 9015. I would appreciate it if someone with experience with this movement would answer the following:

    1. How often does the Miyota 9015 need service?
    2. What is the expected accuracy of this movement out of the box?
    3. Does the movement benefit from regulation?
    4. What is the preferred resting position or positions to keep it accurate?
    5. Is there anything else I need to know?

    Thanks!

    Hi!

    1: Never
    2: Citizen's spec is -10/+30 sec/day
    3: Yes
    4: It depends if your watch is fast or slow throughout the day
    5: We like it when people post pics of their watches

    1. Too early for to tell, it's only been out since 2009 and I don't think (m)any owners forking out money for a Miyota 9015 equipped watch would have them serviced between then and now.
    2. -10 to +30 is spec, out of the box you may do better but never worse. Mine runs at observatory chronometer levels - a good watchmaker with a steady hand is an invaluable friend.
    3. Read above - yes.
    4. Everyone will have different experiences but mine sits crown down at night when I'm not wearing it.
    5. Pictures are mandatory.

    I have found the 9015 to keep consistent time regardless of orientation.

    One reply stated that the Miyota 9015 never needs service. Your reply was that it is too early to tell because they have only been out since 2009. This is new to me since I am accustomed to movements that have a recommended service cycle of approximately five (+/-) years. What is the deal? My take away here is that even the earliest Miyota 9015's (now six years old) do not require service yet, and may never require service?

    I haven a 9015 and it runs great I am replying as far as service is concerned and this info comes from a watchmaker and a saleman who worked at a jeweler that sold high end watches
    and that service is only necessary if the watch is having problems because it's best not to open them up

    The 9015 movement is so cheap, that come time for service, it's more affordable to replace it, than to have it serviced.
