How freely should rotor move?

How freely should the rotor move on a 335?

I've noticed that my normal activity (commute via bicycle to and from work ~12min each way) and walking around work all day (estimated to be 10-20K steps/ day), do not seem to be keeping my recently acquired pre-owned Panerai 335 wound.
When viewed through the see-through case back the rotor does not swing as "freely" as several of my other watches.

I do have an identical movement 273 but it is in a safe a few states away from me currently so I do not have the ability to compare at the moment, but from memory, the rotor on that watch moves much more freely.

The watch is keeping excellent time - not formally tested, but with 2 weeks of daily wear I have not noticed any creep forward or backward in time shown, no matter the state of power reserve.

With the current litany of complaints about Panerai Service Center, I'm a bit loathe to send the watch in unless this is a real issue.
