    Caliber 3187 question?

    Curious about the function of the 3187 caliber. I have a 2019 Explorer 2, watch is keeping excellent time but i notice if i pull the crown to the hour jumping position and move the hour forward or backwords the minute hand slightly moves. Is this normal?

    I think there is a small play in the gears.
    You should be OK as the hands realign when the crown is pushed back in and the gears engage.
    You should be OK with Rolex.
    I had watches from other brands for which the hands were never aligned.
    But this is not a concern with Rolex.

    Normal for Rolex to have that wiggle. The 3135 is really bad for this. My 3187 does the same.

    This 'wiggle' is pretty common in 3185. But that movement has been around for decades, and it doesn't seem to affect the durability of the movement.
    The 3186/3187 wiggle is reduced considerably.
