Rotary watches

Rotary watches have a reputation for being stylish and reliable Swiss movement timepieces with an affordable price-tag. Established in in the heart of Switzerland's La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1895, Britain adopted the Swiss brand in the 1920s, but it wasn't until Rotary became the official watch supplier for the British Army in 1940 that it truly cemented icon status.

Rotary's extensive collections include classic pieces inspired by the past, as well as modern designs with contemporary detailing. Whether you choose a beautiful vintage skeleton watch or a trendy black ceramic model, you know you're getting unwavering quality and unrivalled precision with a Rotary watch.
