  1. Remove rotor before mounting on a movement holder?

    I have only modded exterior of a watch (bezel, crown, hands etc.) but never touched the movement inside. I am planning to swap the date-wheel (not overlay) on a movement (2892-A2) and need some advice. I want to make minimum changes so was wondering if it necessary to remove the rotor before...
  2. Is this sound normal?

    Is the sound of the oscillating weight the same in all 7s26 when you shake it vertically? I just bought a new 7s26 from china and replaced the oscillating weight, but it is making the same noise again when shaken vertically.

    Chinese Mechanical watches
    Hello all, I've already posted about this on the Heads Up! thread, but it got locked as the new month began, so not sure if it's been missed. Or maybe I'm just stating the obvious (I'm new to Automatic watches!) :-) I bought the Rider M002 Bauhaus-style Watch when it went on Sale to $60...
  5. My Glycine has a loose rotor? - I'm new to the world of watches

    Hello, I picked up a Glycine Incursore Power Reserve model #3880. I bought it from a consignment store for $50, no box or papers. It was kind of an incredible find. I confess, I did not particularly like this model, but given it's insanely low price it would have been stupid not to get it. I...
  6. Tudor North Flag Noisy Rotor

    Rolex & Tudor
    Hello, I have recently purchased a Tudor North Flag pre owned and became aware that the rotor on it was really quite loud when rotating. If I tapped the watch it sounded like a bag of spanners! It makes a kind of rattling sound. Sounded very cheaply made. Could probably post a video of this if I...

  8. New Damasko - is this noise normal?

    Damasko Uhren
    Hi everyone. I'm nearly a week into owning my first Damasko, as DA44, but have noticed that the movement is extremely noisy, much more so than any other watch I own. Is this normal? I can hear it ticking sometimes even when my arm is in the down at my side position, but perhaps more worrying is...

  11. Any experience with changing the rotor retaining bolt/ring on a Soprod SOP A10 movement?

    I have a Sotwa watch with a Soprod A10 movement and the rotor retaining ring (bolt?) has come loose. It's basically the same part as in this video: , the part that he removes / attaches with the red tool. It is a retaining ring which he causes a bolt...

  14. Valjoux 7750 problem. Rotor is NOISY in Hamilton Jazzmaster chrono...

    Public Forum
    Ok, So I got a Hamilton Jazzmaster Chrono for Christmas from the parents, and I'm more than happy with the watch. They bought it online as there are no AD for Hamilton in Australia whatsoever, and putting an airfare ontop of an already expensive watch was far out of the question. Anyway, my...
  15. Today, my Seiko Kinetic ska523' rotor noise got louder.

    Today, my Seiko Kinetic ska523' rotor noise got significantly louder. (It's only a week old T_T) Before the noise was not noticeably present: I could not really hear the rotor unless I bring the watch close to my ear. Only cause I can suspect is the fact that I washed my hand on the sink and the...

    Chinese Mechanical watches
    Yeah, I was going to buy a Getat Panerai homage watch, and decided to get a Parnis Portuguese Power Reserve first instead as a 'trial' of sorts of these chinese mechanicals. When I received it though I was very less than impressed with the noise the rotor makes and I made a comparative video...

    When people talk about the rotor spinning and the rotor wheel spinning in an automatic watch, what's the distinction? Is there a difference between a rotor and a rotor wheel, or is it just semantics? Thanks.
