Default Rotary Les Originales

Can't help thinking The Rotary Les Originales are the industries great secret. I now own four, and they really are great watches. All mine are quartz, although automatics are available. They are made with different specs, but I THINK they are all made in Switzerland, well mine are anyway. Three of my four came on well made bracelets with deployment clasps, and the other on a leather strap. Of course, I have had a bit of a play since. Sapphire crystal, nicely crafted 316L stainless cases, ceramic bezels, screw down crowns, dolphin standard water resistance, and Ronda movements. Although the list prices are between 400/500, it's rare this would ever be paid. I picked up all of mine for between 70/80, either nearly new or ex display. Below is my most recent, it's the Legacy GMT.

Like all of my Les Originales it's Dolphin Standard, which Rotary claim is good for swimming and shallow diving, so 200m I would guess.

Here are two of my others, the remaining one is awaiting a new rally strap.

They really do seem pretty extraordinary just when you are seeing
all of the specifications Mrs. Wiggles. Add in the prices,
and you really are stunned, and in awe ! Had always thought
these watches were on a different level, and much more price tag
wise. Now am learning that they are still on that high level, but
the prices are extremely reasonable. Beautiful watches !!!

Boy oh boy, always learning MW. Thanks so very much !
