Rotary silver vintage travelling watch, hallmarked 1931

A sterling silver engine turned manually wound purse watch

This travel watch was made in 1931 and has a sterling silver case which has wave-form, engine-turned decoration. With a pleasing action, the front cover slides open, thereby releasing the inner case which is hinged and springs upwards to a fixed, angled position; this places the watch in an ideal position for viewing when placed on a desk or bedside. There is some scratching to the original glass and some light denting to the back of the case.

Rotary is the brand name of Moïse Dreyfuss a watchmaking firm originally founded in 1895. During the 1920s, Sylvain and George Dreyfuss opened a subsidiary in London to import the family’s watches to the UK. Rotary became the company’s brand name together with the ‘winged wheel’ logo.
