Traveller's GMT coming soon for the masses? The Miyota 9075.

So, TGV posted an interesting video a couple of days ago and mentioned some watches featuring this movement, which I'd never heard about previously, comparing them to the upcoming Seiko GMT.  Apparently, it's a Miyota 9K series base with a traveller's GMT function baked in, so the usual 9000 series specs, with all of their pros and cons apply - 42hr power reserve, 28800 vph, unidirectional winding, etc.

I'd never heard of this movement before TGV's video.  Has anyone else?  So far I've discovered three watches which have it or are going to feature it:

  1.  https://conteenium.com/product/lip-nautic-ski-auto-gmt-41mm-671530/
  2. https://www.watchuseek.com/threads/zeppelin-new-zeppelin-atlantic-gmt.5401430/
  3. Bulova Wilton GMT - no link yet.

I'm seriously intrigued by the proposition of much thinner traveller's GMT watches being made available though, and for reasonable prices to boot.  Are we seeing the beginnings of a revolution for one of my favorite complications?  What say you all?  Do you know of any other pieces powered by this beast?  Would you choose a Seiko 5 GMT or something else powered by the 9075?

with my own personal experience with seiko qc probably 9075 a nice micro brand gmt good value... mmm hmmm.

I had good experiences with Mitota 90xx movements. I hope this movement allows micorbrands to make nice and thin (!) GMTs and I am absolutely looking forward to potentially owning one!

There is a YT video comparing the Bulova Wilton GMT and Seiko 5 GMT, with pictures of 2 Wilton models: blue and "porcelain white" dials with a polar view of Earth in the dial. The Wilton will apparently come in at 43mm on a leather strap. Bulova, as a Citizen / Miyota brand, will reportedly be first to market with the 9075.

Shame they are all above 40mm. Will hold out for the Timex Q GMT for now then. (I know, quartz vs automatic, but wearability is more important for me)

I’m not sure if that is an aesthetic choice or a limitation of the movement, but I think it’s the former.  I, for one, am excited to see what other companies do with this new movement!

Can't wait to see what microbrands do with the 9075!
