Rolex Skydweller

Loud whirling noise on the auto rotor, has any one had issues.
Doesn’t sound as smooth and flawless as one might think, any advice.

Definitely not right.

All my Rolex, including my Sky Dweller, are silent.

The Sky Dweller uses ball bearings in the rotor instead of the solid axle found on the 31xx and previous calibres. So it will sound different.

Without hearing your watch in person there’s nothing that can be said whether it’s normal or faulty.
