    I love the ticking a watch makes. I enjoy quartz, but the ticking is what finally made me pull the trigger on another mechanical. I have a feeling I'll have plenty of both before I'm done.

    It's not nerdy (or is it?), I do the same with mine. The coolest one I've heard yet is my wife's Yachtmaster. It has a distinct high pitched ringing from the balance spring that can be heard over the ticking of the pallet. Very cool indeed.

    My Aviator with a poljot 31681 has a very interesting sound its more high pitched sort of tink-tink-tink.

    My alpha I definitely the loudest. It's a jump hour and I can usually hear (and sometimes feel) the hour tick over.

    Listening to Watches

    Of my auto's, the Seiko's with the 7S26 (Monsters and Samurai's) are the best sounding pieces. After the house goes quiet, the "tick-tick-tick" lulls me to Nod .....

    Hi, I'm Bill, and I listen to my watch as it unwinds ....

    Cheers!

    No, but I do love to hear the whirl of the rotor winding.

    You are not alone.... I'm always listening and putting the watch on my son's ear, he loved them too.

    I have a 1965 Omega and is so loud that I love to sleep with it... sweet dreams guaranteed.

    Yeah, I listen to the ticking every now and then.

    My SuperOcean is relatively quiet, but my Omega Seamaster Chrono diver is loud!! (yes, the famous 3303)
