Key Features

Elegant and stylish 1960’s ROTARY VISCOUNT wristwatch, with a clean and crisp 60’s design and a thin crosshair on the dial for better time reading. The case is original solid stainless steel, and looks like new especially with its fresh looking, multi-coloured nylon strap.

The Rotary Viscount model line is concerned with a thinner case format, and has more of a focus on high-quality workmanship than on it does on design. The term ‘Viscount’, a title used to refer to a noble of varying highly ranked status, implies these models to be of a high-quality or high-class.

About Rotary

Due to this, the company grew quickly, and in 1925 the famous winged Rotary logo was introduced.
