Key Features

This stylish and utterly eye-catching blue-themed ROTARY watch dates back to the late 1970’s – due to its modern quick date setting system feature, using two pull out crown positions. The AS 2063 movement was in production from 1969 to 1978.

The case is 37 mm, stainless steel, with tank shaped lugs, and original satin finishing without re-polishing. The excellently preserved, perfect royal blue tone of the dial appears somehow even more brilliant in person, and is nicely complimented by the similar bright blue tone of the watch strap. 

About Rotary

The company worked uphold certain values in their workmanship, of always paying attention to detail, and special attention to customers. Due to this, the company grew quickly, and in 1925 the famous winged Rotary logo was introduced.

Rotary continues to be a successful watch manufactory, consistently working to improve and to succeed. Their style aims to blend the ‘old with the new’, and the ‘contemporary with the classic’, to create distinctive and somehow timeless timepieces.
