This 1973 Rotary 9k watch, complete with box and papers, has a slim case and just two hands – the ideal dress watch design.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
The London import hallmark is for 1972, but the original guarantee paperwork show that this watch was was sold (and probably gifted) on Christmas Day 1973.
The watch is running well, and has little signs of wear. The solid gold case is very slim and wears larger than the diameter suggests. The 21 jewel Peseux 7001 movement is very high quality – some of the brands also used this movement – Baume & Mercier, Blancpain (cal 7001, modifiziert), Bucherer, Chronoswiss, Eberhard & Co., Omega (cal 651, modifiziert), Paul Picot, and Tissot. The dial does have some dirt marks, and the crystal has a small scratch between 2 and 3. The hour hand has also touched the dial at some point, leaving a very light mark in a semi circle. We have fitted a new strap with gold tone buckle, so this watch is ready to wear.
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, stamped paperwork and our Certificate of Authenticity.
