Hi Guys,
I have a Chopard Mille Miglia and a Bell and Ross that when wound manually are both silky smooth and quiet. By contrast my two Bremonts (Alt1-P & BC-S2) both feel a little like I'm grinding coffee. I'm exaggerating, of course, but there is some amount of stiffness in the stem when being wound. Both watches are less than a year old and have done this since they were first purchased. The watches also both keep good time and don't seem to have any other issues. Do those of you with more or longer Bremont experience feel that this is normal or is it just part of the "personality" of the brand? I guess I'm not particularly bothered by the difference between the Bremonts and my other watches as long as they're supposed to be like this. I just want to make sure it's not something that's going to cause damage.
Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.
