    Altimeter question

    I purchased a BR01-96 altimeter in January. Today I noticed that when I shake the watch, it rattles. Almost as if something is loose. I
    know that automatics should have some internal movement but my other automatic watches (not B&R) do not make this audible rattle. Is
    this normal and I am just now noticing or is it something I should send it to my AD for?

    Thanks in advance,

    A

    Congratulation on your new Altimeter.

    I cannot see why it would rattle and the only thing that should be audible is the rotor spinning as it winds the watch.

    I would suggest taking it back to your AD and see what they recommend, they may send it back under warranty if they think the sound is not normal.

    Best of luck.

    yes, could be a noisy rotor.
    If the watch works, then no problem!

    I also got the noise, and i was worried at first. I took it to the authorized service center and they said it's normal.
