    Issue with my Automatic watch?

    I just purchased a Damasko DA46, which has a ETA 2836-2.

    The watch is brand new, not second hand and to my knowledge has never dropped.


    When im wearing it you can hear noise from the inside of the watch, which to me is normal because there is a rotor inside of it. However when i hold it verticle and move it slightly front to back not in the directions the rotor would move there is a sound that is like something inside is free moving. Does the rotor have play in all four directions? I thought the rotors where very tightly screwed down and only moved left or right?


    Please school me on this so i dont have to worry about stuff like this, its my first non Chinese automatic (and the chinese one doesnt even make these sounds? :( )

    It could be that the rotor has become slightly loose, and as play in the vertical direction.
    That is entirely possible.

    Do you think its possible that this play might be intended? Would that make sense at all?

    Im having a hard time convincing myself that someone would design a rotor that would sag when resting.

    I can hardly see why play in the rotor would be intended, as that would lead to insufficient winding..
    Take it to a watchmaker, and see what they say.

    If opened, so much for the warranty.

    Ask Damasko USA if noise from vertical position is normal:

    If they are good, they may know what the noise is just by listening to it, and them you can send it back to the company under warranty and get it fixed.

    Lets say there is a bit of play in the rotor, will this hurt the watch?

    It tells time very well, i assume if something inside was broken it would not wokr?

    Nope.
    As long as it's winding well etc.. and you are happy, I'd leave it alone.
