Rotary Campus 17J Swiss Fiberglass Divers style Men's Watch Cal.ST 96 Circa 1965. Condition is Used. Dispatched with Royal Mail 1st Class.


Im proud to be offering a standout divers watch from the mind 1960's from Rotary. This is a very interesting pieces which will not fail to attract comments and looks. The Blue face is a beautiful, rich colour. Add to this the very clear, lumed non numeric hour indicies and the matching shaped lumed hands, you have a very 1960's watch. The BRIGHT Orange second hand is also a great touch against the glowing hands and hour markers. The brushed stainless steel bezel adds to the space age look of this watch, topping of a remarkable 40mm circular case. Beneath the bezel is a white, fibreglass case which makes the watch remarkably light to wear.


The watch functions as it should, keeping time, date changing, stem winding well and setting positively.
