When exploring the market for high-quality and affordable British designed wristwatches, few brands have the enduring appeal and rich heritage as that of Rotary Watches. With the singular vision to create timeless watches for the modern world, the award-winning brand has nurtured excellence in design since its inception in Switzerland in 1895.
Since the beginning, Rotary has excelled in delivering the highest standard of craftsmanship with a nuanced approach to pricing. Over 125 years later, Rotary’s London-based design studio takes inspiration from the global DNA of the city and injects it into effortless designs that can be passed down from one generation to the next. Indeed, Britain remains a leading icon in the brand’s design ethos. Rotary watch families are named after iconic British locations such as Oxford, Cambridge and Kensington. Each family draws inspiration from their namesake location, further fusing British influence into the brand.
One family which has particularly attracted the attention of buyers seeking for a unique timepiece is the Regent family, a collection of automatic watches. Regent’s trademark design is enigmatic and powerful with a touch of avant-garde in style. An eye-catching brushed steel 40mm case with 8 polished facets houses a round dial which seamlessly melts into either an integrated tapered h-link bracelet or leather strap. All models utilise sapphire glass, known for its durability and scratch resistance, and are water resistant up to 100m. Instantly recognisable, the Regent collection is a standout presence in the Rotary brand due to its striking shape; for the wearer who likes to make a statement, the Regent is an iconic and daring design.
The Regent GS05415/05 is one example through which Rotary achieves an assertive and modern look along with a curiosity for reinvention. With its tapered blue leather strap, this watch masterfully brings together playfulness and adventure with a classic look. Showcasing a skeleton dial in cerulean, the piece features an inner minute tracker and an eye-catching shaped ‘cage’ structure that creates additional space and light surrounding the self-winding movement. This model, like others in the Regent family, is powered by an automatic Miyota 8n24 movement, featuring an exposed case.
For those seeking a more monochromatic wristwatch, the Regent GB05415/04 is the perfect accessory. When pairing the Regent’s stunning geometric case with this model’s black skeleton dial, the effect is one of power and confidence. Like all other models in the Regent family, each strut in the piece’s caged structure dial houses a luminescent index marker for optimised reading in darker environments. The tapered stainless steel h-link bracelet is robust and helps the timepiece fit onto the wrist with comfort and sturdiness.
