Upgrading to Miyota 9xxx

Hi all. I’m looking at purchasing the Big Pilot Eoniq watch from. I’ve been reading about the different Miyota movements and it seems like the 9series is a significant upgrade…however, one of the upgrades is that the movement is thinner. Will I be able to sub the 9 series into the big pilot with it being thinner than the 8 series? Thanks in advance!

No unfortunately, you’ll need a new movement holder and a new set of hands. Crown probably won’t fit as well.

Darn. I thought that might be the case. Thanks for the quick reply and helping out! Tom
