Key Features

Elegant and stylish 1970’s ROTARY wristwatch, with a clean and crisp case design and an unusual Roman/Arabic numeration on the dial. The case is polished stainless steel, and looks much better than chrome plated timepieces from the same period as the metal keeps its high-quality shine while also nicely showing its age. The watch also features an enhanced quality Peseux 350 Swiss movement, which was usually only utilised for gold cased versions of this model.
