Hi everyone, hope I'm in the good section of the forum.
I have been reading this forum for a while now. I have been interested in watches since my father gave me his father's Omega Deville Automatic 18k (1968, if I'm not mistaken) about 10 years ago. I like well made and durable stuff in general (leather shoes, boots, bags, briefcases, wallets... mechanical vintage cameras) and like to keep my stuff long enough so that they have a story to tell.
I recently purchased a watch online (Rotary GS02990-05). I should receive it in the next 48 hours. I had read about Rotary, and found that most people here think that most of their watches are deceiving chinese pieces with low interest. But I also read multiple times that their "Swiss made" watches are worth a look. I found this watched and liked it immediately. Two days ago, I found a really good deal and grabbed it since it was much lower than everywhere else. (160$ shipped)
- Apparently Swiss designed AND Swiss made.
- Open heart and open
- Display case back
What do you guys/girls think? I was wondering if anyone had an idea of the exact movement of the watch. Or if anyone had a good/bad experience with a Swiss-made Rotary watch.
