    @Hubert You’ll have to explain the meme. Never watched Twin Peaks. It was after my bedtime when it aired :D

    As with most of David Lynch's work, it was a very weird show, but captivating. The character he plays, has a hearing problem, and ends up being way too loud when speaking.

    I guess with old age then the rotor noise issue will diminish. Gotcha! Thanks for the tip :p

    Your Cal 18 Telemeter is noisy too? I thought maybe it was just mine. Louder than any other watch I have. I have a theory that it could be the sapphire caseback that amplifies the sound somehow.

    it is a bit rattly - i’ll have to check how it compares. Noise level wise they all compare to the MLx Pontos I have.

    Sir @Hubert has both a 39mm Carrera Telemeter Calibre 18 and a 39mm Carrera Silver 160 Calibre H02. Maybe he can compare and give an objective assesment of the rotor sound / “noise” :thumbsup:

    I echo what others said. The H02 movement is the loudest.

    I love Twin Peaks! The owls are not what they seem!

    Me too, season three was killer, especially that one episode where there was almost no dialogue. I need to watch that again... (Ep 8).

    i think the current situation makes it far more noticeable. Much less ‘background’ (little traffic) noise so the rotor is far more ‘obvious’. All the autos make noise - just think I noticed these in particular because of when they were bought. I think if ‘normal’ day to day circumstances it won’t be an issue really.

    I think with the Tele18 it was not so much of a nasty surprise as it was known to be cheap movement dressed up in a nice package. But with all the hype of the H02 being a flagship ‘in house’ movement maybe the level of expectation was set too high in terms of refinement. That’s now been recalibrated to avoid future disappointment (which is usually only temporary anyway). Being realistic it was probably falsely set (speaking personally) in the first place. Got over it now. Tis only a watch at the end of the day.

    Besides, it is not an issue whilst tucked away in a box anyway. ::rimshot:::D

    Just for reference, since i have it personally. I owned 2 calibre 6 tag heuer. It is the quiet-est movement i have in my collection probably.

    But it's not a chronograph, so it wouldn't appeal to everyone :D.

    Great video production from Thailand! This reminds me of the “Watchfinder & Co.” production with highly detailed closed up videos :thumbsup:

    Yes, but this one has much better production! One of the best I've seen on watches.
