Rotary Watches Limited is an award-winning worldwide brand of classic timepieces. The firm was founded in 1895 by Moise Dreyfuss in the Swiss town of La Chaux de Fonds. Rotary is still owned by the Dreyfuss family through Dreyfuss Group Holdings and, with Robert Dreyfuss at the helm, is the oldest family-owned and run Swiss watchmaker.
The founder, Moise Dreyfuss was dedicated to creating beautiful watches with timeless elegance. His attention to detail and insistence on first class personal service ensured the business grew quickly. Within 12 years of the founding of the company success led to the opening of a UK office.
In 1925 the now famous winged Rotary logo was introduced and after the war, under the leadership of Teddy Dreyfuss, the brand developed further, with innovative watches, sophisticated marketing and powerful advertising campaigns.

Ken Cooper our west coast sales manager is getting old and he too was in Vietnam and exposed to the agent orange so sometimes he gets mixed up, I was eating Italian pasta not ice cream. Oh well don't tell him because I really don't want to change his stories they are so amusing.
Sergeant Melvin Snerdly while serving in Vietnam (The Iron Triangle) in late 1968 took a well deserved R&R to Bangkok, Thailand. The country is known as "The Land of Smiles" and Mel feel in love with the country and the people. In fact, Mel fell deeply in love with an exotic beauty named Sukin Padwaditton. When it was time for Mel to return to Vietnam, Sukin gave him a lovely Omega timepiece. Mel vowed to her after his duty was done in Vietnam he would return and marry her. Alas, this was not to be as Mel was badly wounded in attack on his base in Vietnam resulting in Mel being sent first to an Evac hospital in Vietnam and then to the large hospital located in Japan. Once Mel had recovered enough to fly he was sent to a military hospital near his home. Having received a severe head wound he found he could not remember where or who gave him the Omega automatic watch, only she was lovely and he must find her. After many painful operations & treatments Mel was medically retired from the Army. Years passed and Mel tried to recall where & who the unknown exotic beauty was. Years passed and Mel gave up his quest to find her. He went to work as a low level supervisor for Snark's Supply Company. One day, after work, Mel's friend Stan Manly said they should stop and eat at a new Thai "Chop House" called the Dancing Elephant for a bite to eat & some beer. Entering the joint Mel & Stan took a booth and very soon an older but exotic Thai lady arrived to take their order. When she saw Mel she burst into tears crying loudly "Mel is that really you"? At once something snapped in Mel's brain and he shouted with tears of joy streaming down his red face, "Sukin it's you, I remember now". Stan Manly unable to make sense of the scene fled the scene breaking wind loudly leaving Mel & Sukin holding each other and crying loudly. Mel found out that Sukin had married an airman and had come to states just a few years ago. Sukin's husband, Willie Eeing, had proven to be a cad and had died in a car accident one night while trying to play the car's CD player. Mel & Sukin made plans to see each other the next day and in a whirlwind courtship quickly married. They lived together for years until Mel passed away from exposure to Agent Orange & wounds received in Vietnam plus a big outbreak of "Jungle Rot" all through his feeble torso. Heartbroken for almost 2 years Sukin finally thought it was time to sell Melvin's well kept Omega watch. Arriving at a large watch show she spotted a sign proclaiming, "Good prices for Good Watches" and sitting behind the counter eating a bucket of rich creamy, fat laden vanilla ice cream was a friendly man known as Girard. Girard reminded her of some the older friendly water buffalo she used to ride in Thailand as a youth. Telling Girard the story of her, Mel, and the watch, Girard paid her a very pleasing price for the Omega watch. Girard soon posted this timepiece at a very reasonable price. This is your chance to own a classic timepiece with a hell of a story behind it. Sukin returned to work at the "Dancing Elephant" and thought what a great country the United States is. When purchasing this Omega automatic consider using Girard's lay away plan.

Mr. Ken Cooper our west coast sales manager tells us the true history of this timepiece. Ken is well known in most of the beer parlors in his state not just his town so this is what he says is the true past history of this fine watch.
Mister Haram Scram was very concerned about his fate that he read his horoscope twice daily and had consulted a very fine lady (Goro Peistering) who read the stars for him on a weekly basis. At their last meeting she stated the stars were favoring him an it would appear that he would soon find a large safe containing cash & gold. Elated he dashed off to his favorite watch shop to buy a new time piece, failing to pay his fortune teller - who then cast an evil spell on him. Mr. Scram ordered a new Armand Nickolet timepiece (he loved the name even though he could not say the name correctly. He was told the timepiece would arrive the next day. Setting out that day for the watch shop he was eager to take delivery of the Armand Nickolet but alas the fortune teller's curse was in effect. Passing by the city's tallest building Mr. Scram was struck by a large safe filled with cash & gold that had broken free of its straps as the workmen were trying to place the safe into an office on the 50th floor. The safe slammed into Haram's hapless body smashing him flatter than a week old pancake. The watch dealer stunned at this turn of events sold Haram's new timepiece to Girard's internet site of watches where he now offers it for sale as a "like new" timepiece. The fortune teller just rubbed her hands at the news and stated "The Stars are Never Wrong & Deadbeats Should pay Their Bills". When ordering this great timepiece be prepared to be shocked at the unique lay away plan Girard offers for his customers.

Ken Cooper our best but only and most productive sales manager for the west coast now retired but formally a member of our US Army Top grade non commissioned officer that can be attained and we thank him for his many years service. We all salute you Ken... Anyway here is what he says is history of this military wrist watch.
In the late winter of 1948 Sergeant Ace Megestrolly reported into his new duty station at Camp Amiot deep in the hills of a very Southern state. Ace was issued this new 1948 Bulova watch as he processed through the unit's supply room. Sergeant Megestrolly was made the NCOIC of the post's mess kit repair division. As his commander Major Notsacks made clear to him this job was important and needed stern leadership as most of his soldiers were rejects from other units and were one step away from a "bad paper" discharge. Taking charge with a force of energy Ace soon had the mess kit repair division running at 100%. Morning formations, fitness training with a 2 mile run daily and rifle marksmanship training every quarter made the men feel like soldiers. Every month SGT Megestrolly announced who was the "Soldier of the Month" and the unit had a big beer bust that night. In June 1950 war broke out in Korea and Ace Megestrolly was one of the first to volunteer for combat duty but alas he was told his duties running the mess kit repair division were too important to release him. He paid great attention in these years to keeping his Army issued Bulova maintained properly and when he retired 15 years later, still at Camp Amiot & now a Staff Sergeant, his commander presented his well maintained Bulova watch to him as a retirement gift from the Camp and the men of the mess kit repair division. Ace moved to the West Coast of the United States and had a very comfortable job working as a bank guard & handyman. As he entered his "Twilight Years" he moved into Porter's Rest and Funeral Home to live out his remaining years. He sold his military Bulova watch, still running like a top, to Girard's Watches with instructions that even though the Bulova never saw combat it was and is a rugged veteran of military service. Girard has placed it at an attractive price and smiles when he thinks of all the work & skill it took to keep mess kits properly repaired. When purchasing this Bulova timepiece ask about Girard's unique & customer tailored lay away plan.
