My dad came for a visit today as he lives 100 miles away we do not see each other that often , halfway through the visit he handed me what looked like a small sunglasses case

upon opening it I saw a rather smart old Rotary watch with my immediate thoughts being please dont ask me to fix this as I wont be able to . He then told me to turn the watch over and look at the back .

This was my Grandfathers watch that he was presented with at his retirement . My dad explained that this is in with my inheritance but why wait until then I may as well have it now and appreciate it .

This Rotary is what I would call a proper dress watch , easy to read , clear display , and on a very comfy thin leather strap . I really like the seconds dial at the bottom .

This will not be worn very often by myself as it is such a special watch but will be taking pride of place in the display cabinet that we have .

Not aure if it is 9ct or not I may open the back at one point just to look at the movement.

The watch was presented in 1960

That’s a stunning looking vintage watch John and all the more special with it being your grandfathers . A treasured watch inheritance  3377044411 it’s great that your dad has kept it safe and has kindly decided now to pass it onto yourself.

What a beautiful watch, a classic dress watch and what with the family history you must be very pleased with it, can I ask have you ever seen it before or was it a bolt from the blue

I had heard about it in the past it came up in a conversation. He said this time though best to give me it now as he knows how much I enjoy watches and that I will appreciate it .
