    Noisy Rotor on Sixty-five 42mm?

    Need some advice- I love the watch and own several high end mechanical movements. This one has an odd sound, almost like the rotor is loose and scraping a bit. I know the normal rotor sound on my Tudor, Omega and Rolex, but this is just a bit louder and almost tinny sounding. However it's keeping +4 to +6 per day over the past week. I haven't wound it since Friday afternoon. (First week I've owned it) Can someone else check theirs and see if it's just an odd sounding rotor? Doesn't necessarily sound broken, just noisy and loose sounding not audible unless closer than 5 inches away. Maybe this is normal for a SW200?

    I've noticed the same thing on my Oris Divers 65 42mm. Think it's just a noisy rotor. It's the only one I can hear and it's quite loud. Oris put their own red rotor on all their watches. I've gotten used to it. Doesn't bother me. Sometimes I even give it a good shake and then hold to my ear and see how long I can get it rotating. When I'm bored obviously.

    I've got several SW200s and none of them are noisy. It may well be nothing but I'd have it looked at anyway while it was still under warranty.

    I can see it now, everyone holding their coveted Oris up to their ear to see how loud the rotor is. Hahaha. I just did and the rotor is not noisy but I can hear it. BCPP date. Sounds the same as most of my other autos. Running about +2 secs per day.

    The part making the noise isn't on other movements. Oris swap out rotors and put their own red rotors on.

    It's also substantially heavier.
