    The 7750 is a noisy movement when you manually wind it, as well as when wearing it. My ML Pontos S has a solid caseback so I cannot verify whether the rotor spins when I wind it or not.

    Yes I see and yes it is a loud movement in general but I am pretty certain you would notice if the rotor was going nuts when you are winding the movement via the crown. My experience with 7750 is that you can basically feel, not only hear, the rotor spinning.

    Some automatic movement in my experience, just better off with wearing it for several minutes at the zero power before took it off again and start to set the current time.

    Take it as *warming up your car* before you drive it.

    Since i don't manually wound my automatic watches anymore, i feel safer with the automatic movement. Especially the older watches.

    Some in house movement also not meant to be manually wound if it was automatic. My Frederique Constant since to be very resistant towards manually wound and i don't dare to try. As well as my vintage omega (which i don't own anymore) but i forgot what movement was that.

    I know manually wound your automatic movement give you that satisying feel of engine turn and probably the only way to max power it from zero. But i would definitely recommend just get manual watch for that.

    Exactly, you feel the whole watch moving on your wrist as the rotor’s spinning. I kinda have the same sensation with the H02 though, minus the 7750 noise.
