How easily should the rotor turn in a 2824-2 movement?
As I hold my watch vertical and rotate it, the rotor moves with a slight hesitation through 360 degrees in either direction. I assume the hesitation is caused by the friction of the gear train.
But if I use more subtle movements, trying to replicate the swinging of my arm through maybe a 30 degree arc while walking, the rotor stays almost entirely motionless. I am likely getting little or no winding action from normal walking arm movement.
Is that normal?
