    Rolex 3187 problem in Noob GMT Master II

    HI all! I received my brand new Noob GMT Master II 116710 LN . It was running perfectly 2 days, but yesterday I changed the hour again to adjust 2nd local time, and the hour hand jumped a bit and now minutes and hour hands are not synced, same for GMT hand. Can I fix it myself without open the movement or have I to go to a watchsmith? damn it... I should never change the hour

    Check that the GMT is not synced too, because the bezel is not aligned (I will fix it reinserting the bezel this week).

    I've tried to realign hour hand with 2nd position of GMT, but without success, it jumps every time foreward or backward.

    It's broken - AFAIK nobody ever came up with a solution the problems with this POS movement.

        A question, if the mvt is broken, can I install a 2836 or 2892-2 inside? And change the hands order to ICHS. Or I need a new rep?

          You can install a new movement, but this will change the hand stack, so you'll need a new GMT hand .

            Ok, then I can install a "non decorated" 2836 with working GMT and different hand stack, but only if Ig a new GMT hand compatible, right?
            Do you know where can I buy one?

              Just sell it for parts and buy an ICHS movement GMT replica.
