    Parnis 43mm makes slight ringing noise when moving it around... can anyone diagnose?

    Hello,

    I just received a new Parnis 43mm watch and it looks great. I'm well aware of the rotor noise that accompanies this watch, and I'm fine with that. I'll likely have it greased by a watch smith to reduce the noise (if that's the correct thing to do) or remove it altogether and hand wind the watch as a last resort.

    However, I was not expecting to hear a ringing noise that originates from the movement of the watch when I move it around. I believe the slight clicking noise is caused when the rotor spins around and hits something, but I'm not 100% sure. Nonetheless, it only happens when the watch is moving. I will likely be taking the watch to a watch smith to get this fixed too, but I just want to know if anyone here can help me with this vexing problem. The ringing noise is quite a bit more noticeable than the rotor noise (But occurs less frequently).

    Thanks!

    Could be a tons of things:

    -movement space is not the currenct size

    -automatic rotor is hitting the holder screws

    -poorly assembled movement with wobbly rotor

    nope of the problem can be fixed without take off the case back

    good luck at the watchmaker
