    Vintage Watch Noise: Girard Perregaux

    I recently purchased a vintage Girard Perregaux from the 1960s and the noise coming from the movement seems to be very loud. Is this normal for vintage watches to make a loud ticking noise like this? I have a vintage 1952 Hamilton Fleetwood as well and it makes a noise but is not as loud as the GP. Is there anyway to make the noise quieter or do I just have to deal with it? Also, what could be causing the the noise coming from the movement to be so much louder?

    There's an old saying, "the quieter the watch, the higher the quality." Does that watch have the correct movement
    in it?

    Sorry the links don't work.

    Many fakes have signed movements as well so one must really take a close look.
