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
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!
I like hear the rotor, gives quite experience and how it just start to work by us winding it.
I like the feel & sound of the rotor spinning.

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.
