S7S003B-DD

Rotary Watches has released a new range of affordable dive watches in partnership with retailer WatchNation.

Each timepiece in the new Super7 Scuba range offers seven key features. These include: 30bar water resistance; Miyota 8205 automatic and hand winding with day-date function; scratch-resistant sapphire glass; and dual-coloured luminous hands and markers.

Also included are a screw-down embossed crown and caseback; applied dial markers of luminous stainless steel; and 120-click unidirectional bezel with pip.

Dave Parry of WatchNation.com, also a certified diver, commented: “My vision … is to offer a superlative diver’s watch for under £250. Joining forces with the award-winning watch brand Rotary Watches felt like a natural choice as we have a longstanding relationship with the team and we knew that Rotary would be able to produce an outstanding tool watch for an affordable price, whilst delivering top quality without compromise.”

Rotary has called the UK home for 115 years of its 125-year history. It released its first diving watch in the 1960s.

  1. I know it would have pushed the price up a little, but I’d have loved to see the Miyota 9015 movement in this watch istead of the 8205. Just that little bit more finesse.

    1. Hi Michael! Thank you for sharing your feedback. Miyota makes so many great movements! We’ve already got some ideas for mark II…

  3. A watch in 2020 without hacking?! Shame as it’s a cracking looking watch. I’ll stick with my Orient Kamasu. More for roughly the same price:

  4. I applaud you for selecting the Miyota 8205 to hit this price point. It has a long track record for reliability and is much more accurate than the manufacturer data sheet specs in my experience. I find that hacking is a feature of very little usefulness on most mechanical movements as they will gain/lose a minute over a few weeks. 99% of a watch is how it looks and feels, not the spec sheet.
