Rotary Gold Plated Skeleton Pocket Watch is rated
Rated 5 out of
Best of the current bunch.
I have a collection of vintage pocket watches, so was delighted to have one of these bought for me by my beloved as a birthday present.
Before I saw the watch out of its packaging, I wasn't expecting much as - let us face it - many of the modern watches are poorly built and some even come with quartz movements! But then, I held the watch and knew that here at least someone can still build a watch of genuinely great quality and with a case that equals even the high end ones of previous centuries.
This watch is in fact a very beautiful object and so far, has been matching my 1920s H Samuel pocket watch which has a Swiss "Everite" movement and is accurate to around 4 seconds per week. Yes, the older generations of craftsfolk knew what they were doing but the Rotary has gained only one second in three days so can join the collection with its head held high.
On the downside, it's far too good to actually use for much of my average working week, but given its purpose here as a part of a larger collection, that is totally forgivable.
I love it!
