Great looking watch, but ........
on 30 November 2011
When this watch arrived - very promptly, I might add: thank you, Amazon - I though it looked fantastic. Just what I wanted: big, chunky, solid feel to it, impressive to look at. I had seen an earlier review about problems with the luminous dot at the 12 position on the rotating bezel coming off but never really gave it much thought. But guess what? I wore the watch for one day, and by the end of it the luminous dot had disappeared, presumably dislodged by the mere movement of my shirt cuff: lost, gone forever. Just exactly as reported by the earlier reviewer.
Now, this, to me, is a real shame. It is obviously a manufacturing fault which a reputable and long-established company like Rotary should - and bizarrely, have failed to - address.
And so it was with great regret that I returned the watch to Amazon forthwith. I now have a Citizen which I expect I shall be reviewing shortly.
The Rotary is a great-looking watch, and superb value for the money - if you don't mind losing your luminous dot. I did, so it had to go.
