Rotary Watches

The Rotary watch collection at H.Samuel is a stunning selection of watches featuring innovative designs with a classic twist. The collection offers you a huge choice of classic Swiss watches at affordable prices.

Rotary Beginnings

Rotary is a global watch brand that has manufactured award winning timepieces since its foundation by Moise Dreyfuss in Switzerland in 1895. Rotary Watches is the third oldest watch brand in the world that is still owned and run by descendants of the founding family. It is now in its fourth generation of ownership and even though you can now buy Rotary timepieces in over thirty-five countries, this truly global brand has managed to stay true to Moise Dreyfuss' vision of classic, contemporary, dress watches manufactured to rigorously high standards of quality and design.

Rotary Development

The world famous Rotary logo, featuring the winged wheel, was introduced in 1925. When George's son Teddy joined the company after the war he took the brand even further by introducing innovative watches, sophisticated marketing and powerful advertising campaigns.

Rotary Watches Revolutionary Waterproof Standard

To put an end to any confusion surrounding measures of water resistance, Rotary has applied a general waterproof standard across almost the entire range of watches. Also, to put an end to confusion surrounding numeric measures of water resistance, Rotary Watches are simply 'termed' waterproof. The new standard offers consumers the security that they can swim and dive all day whilst wearing their Rotary timepiece.

The Waterproof Watches Collection

Rotary's waterproof standard is traditionally a feature only associated with top of the range and totally robust sports watches. However, now even the most delicate stone set dress watches are impervious to water. The only exceptions are the precious metal pieces and the Revelation™ collections.

Rigorous Testing

Each waterproof Rotary watch has been subjected to incredibly rigorous testing including exposure to boiling water and the hot wash cycle of a washing machine. This ensures that your waterproof Rotary watch will be able to tolerate any contact with water from washing up to sailing.

This unrivalled lifetime guarantee offers consumers further proof and assurance that by investing in one of the Rotary brands, they are taking ownership of a piece that will offer the wearer continuous reliability and appeal.
