    Vintage Rotary back to life.. how old is it?

    This Rotary handwinder arrived dead in a tray of 24 watches.. Most of the rest were rubbish but only $NZ26 for the lot.. back from the watchmaker today..





    Any ideas as to age.. I am thinking late 40s to early 50s, but really have no idea..

    Cheers

    I would guess this 15 jeweled version to be late 40s.

    Nicely finished. Rotary tastes good as a brand.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
