    Miyota rotors - 8215 vs 9015

    Question for the more knowledgeable...

    Does anyone know if 8215 rotors will fit on a 9015?

    I kinda wanna make my MWW movement a little pretty through its clear caseback. I know of a microbrand that may have some nice rotors left over from their experimenting with 8215 movements (which they ultimately never produced) but not sure if it will fit my 9015.

    They don't fit. Miyota 9xxx has a completely different central bearing than 82xx, and other differences.

    No, it will not fit.

    You can always do some engravings, or pad printing some graphics on the 9015 rotor to make it more interesting to you.

    ^^ This.

    Find a watchmaker to remove the rotor for you (or do it yourself), then send it to an engraver for a real deep cut decoration, or take it to a shop that does laser engraving for door signs and stuff.. A bit more expensive than a replacement rotor, but truly unique and you can get exactly what you look for.
