With a solid silver case and bracelet, this purple dialed ladies Rotary should certainly appeal to many.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the hallmarks on the case back and clasp we can accurately date this watch to being assayed in 1972.
Rotary watches have been going since 1895, and they have always been attainable. Nowadays most production is done in the far east to keep costs down, but back in the 1970’s and before all production was done in Switzerland. The case and bracelet were made by the sister company, Sylvain Dreyfuss, and is correctly stamped SD alongside the sterling silver (0.925) hall marks. The movement is a 17 jewel, manual wind FEF6665 calibre signed with the Rotary winged wheel logo on the spring barrel. This is all working well. The dial is quite lovely, both in condition and design, and a colour you rarely see. The bracelet is a fine mesh weave of silver, and does have slight bending but not as much as this type of bracelet are normally prone to. You would not be able to extend the bracelet easily, so please measure your wrist before ordering. The styling for this is closest to the Patek Philippe Golden Ellipse, launched in 1968 and still available today for those with very deep pockets.
