    The Rotary(Jenny) caribbean 2000

    I bought a Rotary Caribbean Chronograph around a year ago. It looked good, intially but i soon found out that there was a host of issues.

    Anyhow the final hurdles were replacing a poorly made perspex glass it had; which was cracked, so i could make it watertight, and perhaps one day finding a bracelet.

    Amazingly i managed to pick up the proverbial 'hens teeth' on the bay. A NOS bracelet & an original Mineral Crystal.

    You are to be commended for snatching that one back from the jaws of oblivion.

    " For watches there's always TIME "

    I was asked what the time was that was on my watch ?
    Does anybody really know what time it is ?
    Does anybody really care ?
    If so I can't imagine why..........
    I do, I do, I do care about time.
    (Thanks R Lamm)
