    Seiko 6117-6400 "rattle/click"

    I just picked up a gorgeous Seiko 6117-6400 World Timer. Everything seems to be in order but I've noticed that when the watch is turned over, there's an audible click/rattle sound distinct from the usual rotor winding noise. It's only when doing this specific motion (for instance, when it's on my wrist and I turn my wrist over) that I hear it; otherwise all I hear is the rotor. I've heard this might be due to the magic lever; can someone offer any insight before I wear it more and (hopefully not) do more damage if something's amiss?

    Good idea to leave the watch idle until the fault is found.

    Could be something else but I can think of two things: 1. is the rotor not secure causing it to touch the back when you turn the wrist; 2. is movement spacer is not installed correctly so the watch is slightly loose in the case. Best to have someone check it out.
