Anyone noticed the rotor noise with new 3235 movement

#1 Post by Shawnturner » Fri Oct 06, 2017 2:41 am

Hello Everyone

I've worn my new 126600 daily since I got it A little over 3 weeks ago. I have noticed that the rotor noise inside is different/louder than any Rolex that I've owned before.

I know that the Calibre 3235 has 90% new parts so one would expect a different feel to the movement but in my years of collecting Rolex a noisy rotor meant time for service and this watch is factory fresh.

Also this watch is running -4 sec/day; I know it's supposed to be +/-2 but I figured in may settle in possible with more wear.
Has anybody else noticed this noise compared to the previous series of movements?

Any idea, suggestions would be appreciated ,

Thanks,

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Hi, I have no actual experience with the new movement besides looking at photos...they got rid of the rotor axle for ball bearings in the 3235. It was about time for the change..It would make sense that the auto wind on the 3235 has a different feel than past calibers. Though I can't say much else because I have yet to see the new watch.
