    Question ORIS rotor question

    My new ORIS is running spot on, about 2 secs fast per day. I've owned many automatic watches and the rotors were always "free spinning". I notice that the Oris rotor is a bit "sticky", it doesn't spin freely. The rotor can stay inverted/upside down until I give it a little tap. Is this normal for this movement? The Sellita/Oris calibre is new to me, any thoughts?

    Normal. It will free up a bit after some use and break-in period.

    My Aquis is the same, even after 4+ years, and especially when there is a lot of reserve vs when I have just started it up. I used to sweat it but have gotten used to it. It's my only auto with a display back so I don't have much to compare it with. If you're used to movements which only wind in one direction (like 775x-based chronos, or the Miyota 901x series) it will feel extra weird.

    Normal; I think it is because of the reversing weels.

    It's a bit frightening at first but it's normal.

    Hello, first post. I agree, Ive had my aquis for 3 years and the rotor has always been a little "sticky". The timing has always been spot on and reserve always consistant. It does seem to spin more freely when its dead. My seiko monster on the contrary wouldnt stop spinning if you gave it a couple shakes.

    I'm pretty sure it is because they wind in both directions while other only winds in one direction and are free spinning in the other.

    Like mentioned when they have less reserve they spin more. Also you can try manually winding them and when you turn the rotor is disengaged and while then spin freely.
