Watch Review

Dial & Case Design

You have to admit that the dial design of this Rotary watch is beautiful. I love how the rose gold PVD detailing compliments the rest of the stainless steel casing design. And the jewelled automatic movement that’s on show is also very impressive. I think the splash of colour on the seconds hand was a really interesting choice that I like the look of. The casing is made of a tarnish resistant stainless steel.

Type Of Crystal

At the front and rear of the watch is a protective mineral crystal glass. Mineral glass is specially hardened to give it a higher level of scratch and knock protection. Another benefit of mineral glass is its shatter resistance, in case you do ever happen to drop your watch.

Watch Movement

At the heart of the watch is a stunning jewelled automatic movement. This style of movement never requires a battery as it’s charged up and powered by the movement of the wearer’s wrist. They’re also great to look at through the exposed skeleton dial design.

Watch Size

This timepiece is a very popular size for most men with a casing diameter of 40mm and a thickness of 12mm. This should be suitable for most men to be honest.


The dark tan genuine leather strap is comfortable and stylish in keeping with the rest of the watch design. It measures 20mm wide and fastens with a standard buckle style clasp that many people are used to.

Extra features

A great feature of this watch is the exhibition style caseback. It’s a mineral crystal glass on the rear of the watch that allows you to take a look at the inner workings of the automatic movement. You can see this closer in the image below.

Water Resistance Rating

This watch has a water resist rating of 100m. A rating of 100m / 10 Bar / 300ft makes this watch suitable for recreational surfing, swimming, snorkeling, sailing and water sports.
