    Rotary: Where is it made?

    Like so many watch brands, Rotary's website advertises it's Swiss "heritage" but says absolutely nothing about where their watches are currently made. So where are they produced, and are they a good quality and well respected brand?

    They used to have several model lines using Chinese/Miyota movements. Those were probably cased in Asia. I'm not sure if they are still making those.

    The Rotarys I've come across in the last 2 years are all Swiss Made. That means they're assembled in Switzerland with a Swiss Made movement.

    What's on the website today are all Swiss Made model lines.

    Quality is good (for the $) and the watches certified to the Dolphin standard are robust and attractive options.

    Yeah, I had one of their Revelation watches with the flippable case...

    The watch was "Swiss Made" and had (low-end) Swiss made Ronda movements (two of them). It was a good watch for the money. You can get cheaply ($100-150) on eBay.
