    Can you hear the rotor spinning if you put your auto watch close to your ear..

    while turning your wrist? if yes, what brand and models? I notice Rolexes are very quiet auto winders.

    I can hear the rotor in my Damasko DA46. I have heard from one other Damasko owner that this is normal and that Damasko (at least the ones that use the ETA movement) are on the noisier side of the continuum.

    When I flick my wrist exactly right while wearing my Kemmner California, Kemmner California Mit Automatikwerk Miyota 9015 ES Band | eBay , you can actually see the case vibrating from the Miyota 9015 rotor whipping around.

    I can hear it on some of my Seiko 7S watches as well. Not at all on the Marine Master though.

    My 7750 movement is by far the noiseist. I can even see it wobble a bit while wearing it on leather loosly on my wrist.

    I acyually quite enjoy it. Lol

    Its noisier than all my other mechanicals. But not in a bad way, to me at least.

    My Breitling 7750 is very quiet for a watch with that movement. The spin is kind of there but no wobble at all. I suppose because of the case build. I feel cheated...

    Both my JLC divers (Polaris '68 & MCDGMT) have noisy rotors, when held close to the ear they can be heard.
