New Rotary Watch range

on Thu Oct 20 2016, 21:30
Rotary have just released their new range and they have certainly lifted their game, they now come with Sapphire crystals and good quality Swiss mechanical and quartz movements, by the looks the overall quality has been has been increased, BUT ! and its a BIG BUT ! it will be a long time before i forgive the endless Plagiarism, they must have copied and blatantly taken ideas from every maker on the planet.
the new range look good and so they should with the new standards, but they are still uninspiring IMO, they need their own identity which is seriously lacking and has been for many years.
the prices they are charging now is almost offensive for what was a budget brand not that long ago........i think they need to learn to walk again before trying to enter the market at this new level.
all my opinion, but as i said, it will take a while to forgive them selling their soul..... i mean look at the prices:x

Wow they have had one hell of a price increase they do look the part , if they are going to step up the ladder it will take awhile it reminds me of the skoda brand that everyone took the Micky out if but to be fair they are one of the top brands in the uk motor industry now or were a few years back

I like a few of the models but could I justify the price against something in the same price range possibly not

I have to say I was shocked at the prices. The watches look ok, but there's no way I'm parting with £500 for any of those.

thing is as watch enthusiasts [nutters] we know the value of these things, but put that new range in a shopping center jewelers and they will sell like hot cakes..Joe public seems to equate high prices with quality and flashy and has no interest in anything else Crying or Very sad

This one is £425 for a Swiss automatic chrono... seems reasonable?



Sort of depends on the movement, really.
