Hello together Just wanted to share this nice found with you :

It is a crystal sound when the rotor runs. Not the best pic, i found no other without the rotor. Here you see it from the dial side. ...

My oldie from the nineties

Nearly the same movement, save for the date (cal 2121), Ref 14995. That doesn╦őt annoy me. I know that ┬┤scratching┬┤ sound, something I was wondering why it is never mentioned. Is this also the fact when the movement is housed in the Jumbo Royal Oak 15202? ...  

Beautiful watch [nt]
