    I voted no preference. Doesn't bother me. And it doesn't really do anything for me..........Even though I do often shake autos to hear the rotor, just to hear it......which makes not sense, other than just to hear how it sounds, unique quirks of various movements.

    Most of the time I like it
    I have the same experience with my Speedmaster. I like how the rotor spins so freely in it. I wish it had a crystal caseback to view it.

    My Tag Aquaracer caliber 5, on the other hand, does not seem to spin as freely. Again, however, no exposition caseback.

    Thanks!
    My Tag Aquaracer Calibre 5 (ETA 2824-2) does not go into free-spin or wobble. No exposition case back, but, my Mido Baroncelli uses the same basic movement and can see the movement. The Mido also does not free-spin or wobble. However, their rotors, do a fine job of keeping their watches wound if worn regularly.
