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.

Mr. Ken Cooper out best but only West Coast sales manager is known to frequent some of the local wine storage ware houses and as you might suspect from this account of the life of poor Mr.. Kring that our manager Ken was relaxing at one of those places when he made the following story about the history of this fine watch. Be sure to tell Ken how much you enjoy his stories. Hope Readers Digest or Hustler do not steal him away from us.
This golden timepiece was purchased by pasty faced Mr. King Kring after graduation from business college and worn throughout his rise in the business world. It's timekeeping qualities along with it's wonderful 18k yellow golden beauty seemed to push King Kring to achieve all goals assigned to him. After the company was sold and reorganized Mr. Kring moved up to vice president in charge of world-wide sales. He credited his ability to be one of the best leaders within the company to his college training, his unique personality, and his practically hand assembled 18k gold timepiece. In fact, King Kring sent a letter to the factory praising their timepieces and singing the praises of his accurate beauty. During the expansion of the company and increasing sales through-out the third world Mr.. Kring always wore his wonderful 18k watch and seeing to its proper care every 3 years by having Ricketts Watch Service clean and regulate it (if needed). Upon his retirement, "King" moved from his hometown and settled in at a very rustic town located miles from the nearest large city. On his 60th birthday he went for a swim in Snake Lake and alas shortly after entering the lake a trio of deadly cottonmouth snakes bit him numerous times in the face and chest. Crawling out of the lake barely alive he stumbled into a large hornets' nest and was stung nearly to death by the irate hornets. A passing stranger herding his large bunch of cats called 911 and soon help was on the way. Recovering in the nearest town's hospital he knew this misfortune would not have happened if he had been wearing his lucky Piaget gold watch (he had placed it on the desk before entering the lake). Upon discharge from the hospital he hired a Mr. Shigeta Aota to drive him home. Rounding a curve at a high rate of speed, and eating a large bag of shrimp chips, Mr. Aota lost control of the vehicle and plunged into Snake Lake where Mister Kring was unable to swim to shore and his body was never recovered from the deep, dark depths of Snake Lake. King Kring's weeping heirs sold the gold Piaget to a Mr. Girard Sensoli of Pinckney, MI, and Mr. Kring's heirs marveled at the superb physical condition of Mr. Sensoli and wondered how he kept himself in such good shape and had such a razor sharp mind. One of the heirs remarked on the way home, "Why that man looks 35 years younger than his stated age, how does he do it?" Now you have a chance to own, at a very reasonable price, a 18k Yellow Gold Piaget watch, in this era of rising gold prices. Ask Girard, and be amazed when your hear his rich, deep speaking tones, about placing this masterpiece on his unique layaway plan. Be prepared to be "peppered" with questions where you purchased this golden beauty of a timepiece from friends & strangers.

Ken Cooper is our best but only west coast sales manager and he spends hours researching the history of some of our listings and here is what he says is the true story of this one.
Astor Spanglett smiled as he reviewed Girard's excellent listing of timepieces. Girard had Astor's well maintained Tag Heuer 2000 Professional 200 Meter Chronograph watch for sale at such a reasonable price and what a history that timepiece piece had. Astor remembered that he bought the "TAG" just before he left the military at the post exchange, with the clerk's words stating, "A really fine watch Major Spanglett - it will give you great time for the ages". Astor fondly remembered his first job ( and last) as the Kobb County's animal control officer with all the wild adventures he had. the rabid bat attack, the elderly couple with 112 cats in their small mobile home, the mayor of Corn Corners being attacked by a savage mouse, all of these problems had been resolved by him, Astor Spanglett , Kobb County's finest animal control officer. Now in retirement he found no need to have such a fine timepiece like his "Tag" because his rest home (Porter's Nursing & Funeral Home) provide all the timekeeping residents required with wall clocks, mantle clocks, and grandfather clocks (and even one that listed the hours since the last resident passed away - Astor really like that one). Asking around Astor found that Girard had one of the best web sites for watches and Girard gave a person a good price for their timepiece. Now Astor was comfortable in his new home and he knew Girard would sell his Tag Heuer timepiece to a kind and caring person. When purchasing this excellent watch from Girard ask about his unique lay-away plan.

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.
