Complete with the original Rotary box, this solid gold watch is in great condition and is running well.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the London hallmark on the inside of the case back we can accurately date this watch to being assayed in 1970.
Unusually this Rotary watch has never been engraved – many gold watches of this period were given as presents, often for long service, but this one is in the same shape as it left Switzerland. Inside that gold case is an AS 1900/1901 manual wind 17 jewel movement that is winding, setting and working well. The acrylic crystal is faultless, and the strap is new and is fitted with a gold tone buckle to suit. We can change the strap for a different colour if preferred – the drilled lugs make strap changes easy. The dial is in very good condition, to match the rest of this watch. The original box is probably to thank for this watch’s great condition – if the owner kept the box they probably kept the watch in the box and bought it out for best. Back in 1970 watches were not considered collectibles, so it was rare to keep box and papers even on prestigious brands unless they were useful.
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
