Question regarding to AP Chronograph 26331st Winding Sound

Hi, for the current owners of AP chronograph, do you notice any difference in sound when manually winding the crown compared to other RO models (or any Rolex models as comparison)? I purchased 26331st new last year at an authorized dealer, and never really thought about it until recently comparing to newly bought 15450st when winding the crown.. it's a bit difficult to describe, but the chronograph doesn't have the traditional clicking noise when you wind the crown and rather has a bit of grind, albeit not forceful. I suppose it's best to check with AP service center, but I felt that it was better asking here first to those of you who already own the piece.

I have a 26315ST and have the exact same experience. There isn't an audible clicking sound that you typically hear when winding say a Rolex, the sound/feel is much closer to a gentle grinding sound as you described. That said, the watch runs fine and time is keeping well though I was a bit alarmed at first.

Curious to hear from other ROC owners?
