    Rolling eyes Vintage Rotary Watch Identification Needed



    Hi all, please help me identify these two vintage Rotary timepieces.

    I tried to find information on the internet already, but couldn't find anything...

    Thanks,

    Hi, thanks for your reply! Unfortunately that isn't possible right now... Is there anything else you could tell just from the picture as is? :)

    Please avoid bumping posts after only 3-4 hours - we do our best but can't be online all the time, I'm afraid.

    As for the watches, both are from the mid to late sixties or early 1970s. I am not sure they have model names since a lot of watches in those days didn't have any. They should both have decent quality generic movements, probably something by ETA or Adolf Schild. I have a Rotary from around the same time and that has an Adolf Schild Cal. AS 1901.

    Hi sorry not sure if my pictures uploaded before

    Yes they did. And they're massive so I'm deleting them from this post.

    Ah crumbs - I can't see them in your original post now - and I can't undelete them, sorry.

    Hi and welcome.

    According to their website, Rotary dates back as far as 1895 - About Rotary Watches Limited. But the hallmark on the bracelet on your watch is for London, 1965. The SD mark is that of M Dreyfuss which is right because that was Rotary's founder's name London Makers Marks - SD-SI and indicates that the bracelet is original to the watch. No way is it from the time period you have been told.

    Hope that helps.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    I would advise you to look around the internet for similar watches (same make, same sort of style, same features - ordinary three hand watch with date). eBay is usually a good option for that. Consider also the conditions of the sale: a private vendor will never get the same cash as a professional one (he can't give the same sort of warranty). Good luck.
