Rotary's old-school diver

Final.jpg

Diving watches were one of the talking points of this year’s Basel watch fair. And while many looked forward, one model looked back for its inspiration — back to the days when Sean Connery would wrestle sharks only to emerge from the big deep in a crisp white shirt and a Brioni tuxedo.

Meet the Aquaspeed by Rotary. Influenced by a vintage archive Rotary model, only 500 of this limited-edition stainless-steel-style timepiece have been produced by the Swiss brand.

The chronograph features an interchangeable strap: stainless- steel bracelet (shown) and black rubber — complete with the tool kit to swap them over. The watch also boasts a rotating diver’s bezel, a crown guard and, as should be expected with something this fine, a lifetime guarantee.
