MIYOTA 9132 - PREMIUM MECHANICAL MOVEMENT
MADE IN JAPAN
The efficiency of this quality self-winding movement doesn’t take much wrist movement to wind. Basically as soon as you put it on – it starts. If it’s been off the wrist for some time however it’s always a good thing to give it 25-30 winds to get it fully running.
When winding by hand the power reserve needle will move. When the needle reaches full you are still able to move the crown but it is not possible to overwinding the watch thanks to a mechanical feature that prevent this.
Friction is the enemy of any mechanical watch movement Jewels are mainly used as bearings in a watch movement to reduce the friction between a watch's mechanical components protecting them from getting worn out.
A standard mechanical watch uses around
17 jewels but the MIYOTA 9132 movement uses 21 jewels as this insures to minimize positional errors.
The higher the frequency of a watch, the more precise the watch will be and the smoother the movement of the hands will be (especially the seconds)
