    Let's "Hear" your Engine (Movement)

    Do you find yourself flicking your wrist to hear your beautiful rotor movement? I've been fascinated at the different sounds each watch makes. Let's hear some of your movements...
    I'll start with the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time (you'll have to turn up your volume):

    I suppose I'm lucky in some respects since I like to listen to my watches tick. The only downside of this is that it tends to leave ear prints on the crystal.

    Haha....well to clarify, I meant the spinning of the rotor. No ticking, unless it's a time bomb.

    Yeah, the rotor is just sort of a whizzy rattly sound. Tick, tick, tick is something else. I can still hear the clunk, clunk, clunk as the H. Muhr's sons tall case clock in the entry counts the seconds.

    Am I hearing what I think I'm hearing? It sounds like it spins around about five times. I know if it's a VC, it's good, but I'm sort of shocked at that. Sounds like bb's in a tin can.
