    Yes they do, at least I've never experienced a 7750 watch that did not have a significant 'wobble'.
    I like it but I have noticed that for non-WIS it has a somewhat shocking effect.

    I have a Speedmaster powered by an ETA 7750 movement, whenever the rotor enters a free spin state I can definitely feel it, sometimes the watch even wobbles a bit on top of my wrist.

    Most of the time I like it

    Re: Do you prefer hearing the rotor or not hearing it?

    After waering my rollie datejust for a while (3135 movt and no sound, no wobble) I find the first few hours of my Porsche Design (7750) annoying. However, the loudest watch I own is the Bernhardt Sea Shark. The Miyota movt is loud and has wobble (love the watch though!) The 2824 watches are smaller (movt size) and don't wobble so much or make as much noise.

    It is a Rolex day today...so no sound.

    Remembered seeing the TV shows with the display backs and the rotor spinning freely thinking to myself what a site to behold. Thought it was trick photography, but on occasion, especially when I'm bored, I like to hear the sound of the rotor, sort of comforting~Cheers!

    Don't care either.

    Re: Do you prefer hearing the rotor or not hearing it?

    I don't really have a preference, but if I'm hearing the rotor, I would prefer it if it sounded smoother. Most rotors I hear sound a bit rough. I'm pretty sure they are operating normally, but it does introduce a little bit of doubt.
